Heavy Rotation, our top spins for the week of March 8, 2010

As music critics -- and people who generally think about, talk about, listen to and make music -- the most common question we get asked (and ask each other, for that matter) is, "What are you listening to right now?"

The pervasiveness of this query is precisely what inspired Heavy Rotation. For the benefit of those who happen to be curious and to give you a feel for our individual sensibilities, we've compiled a list of all the things we're listening to this week. Feel free to chime in with picks of your own after the jump.
