Backbeat's top five spins: This is what we're listening to this week. What's on your playlist?

As people who think about, talk about, write about, listen to and make music, it shouldn't be surprising to find that the most common (and mutually favorite) topic of conversation among us is the same: "What are you listening to right now?" Stick a quarter in us, and, boy, wouldn't you know it, off we go, on and on about this new song we can't stop listening to, or this new album flipping our wig, or an old favorite we rediscovered. 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've been listening to this week. Keep reading to see which albums and songs were in heavy rotation, and then, of course, feel free to weigh in with your picks.
