• SPIN broke down the season's most anticipated LPs in our 25 Winter Albums That You Gotta Hear. Yes, Lana Del Rey is on the list.

• We also broke down the idea of the album review, announcing our new reviews system, which will consist of super-long takes on records we think are "Essentials" and tweet reviews. Get on board @SPINReviews.

At the Drive-In reunited.... just in time for Coachella's lineup announcement.

• The Big Pink premiered their new album Future This here and told us about the genesis of every track, and First Aid Kit told us about their seven favorite family bands.

• We brought you new music from Wire and Earth and new videos from A Place to Bury Strangers and Miniature Tigers.

• The Holy Ship! pulled into dock and our intrepid photographer Ian Witlen provided us with photos of Skrillex, Diplo, Fatboy Slim and more electro all-stars on the high seas.
