THE PING REPORT

taylor swift makes her first appearance - plus, is phantogram going for world domination?!

This year, we joined Ping, the iTunes social network that shows what music your friends (and enemies, presumably) are buying and playing. We follow every iTunes member who follows us, and we keep tabs on what our entire network is buying and blasting through their headphones every week.

Here are the Top Albums that have been downloaded this week on the NYLON Ping Network:
For the One by Waters No Strings by Mayer Hawthorne Ceremonials by Florence and the Machine Footsteps in the Dark by Cat Stevens Surrender by Angels & Airwaves The Christmas Album by The Glee Cast Run the World by Heather Morris (Glee) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Soundtrack Needle & Thread by Matt Duke Elizaveta by Elizaveta

And here are the top songs...
