dolly parton vs. miike snow - we never thought we'd see the day.

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:
