Last summer, 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:Shooting the Moon, Mona
Born to Die, Lana Del Rey
Part of Me, Katy Perry
Take Care, Drake
Mylo Xyloto, Coldplay
Summer Fling, Don't Mean a Thing, New Found Glory
All The Rowboats, Regina Spektor
WWE: Tropical Storm, Jim Johnston
Say Aah (From The Voice), Lindsey Pavao
And here are the top songs...
"Scavenger," School of Seven Bells
"Genesis," by Grimes
"Emmylou," First Aid Kit
"Carnivale Time," Galactic
"Slip Time," Young Magic
"Shallow," Beach Fossils
"Dour Percentage," of Montreal

If you think the NYLON team should pay attention to tracks other than the ones above, join Ping on iTunes (for free), follow "Nylon Magazine" and our editor-in-chief Marvin Scott Jarrett (he's on there as "Marvin Jarrett") and share your music with us!
