Nathaniel Rateliff, Sleigh Bells and Bruno Mars top our playlists this week

As people who think about, talk about, listen to and make music, the most common question we encounter is, "What are you listening to right now?" So whether you're looking for recommendations, trying to get a feel for our individual sensibilities, or are just curious, we've compiled a list of all the things we're listening to this week. Of ninety total picks this week, new albums from Nathaniel Rateliff and Sleigh Bells, as well as various songs by Bruno Mars topped our playlists. And you'll note that Chris Callaway didn't list the Kinks this week (though, he did list Ray Davies, so we're not sure if that counts). Otherwise, we were all over the map with a healthy mix of local and national releases. See our top spins and feel free to weigh in with picks of your own after the jump.
