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 Alive, BIGBANG 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 "Wine," Blondes "Dour Percentage," of Montreal "Night Swim," Frankie Rose "Brains," Lower Dens 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!
