The new episode of Rolling Stone Music Now, our first-ever podcast, is available. Listen and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or check it out below.

This episode, we discuss HBO's new series Vinyl – produced by Martin Scorcese and Mick Jagger – which aims to capture the wild energy of the music business in the 1970s. So what does it get right about rock & roll, and what does it gets wrong? Editors Rob Sheffield, Alex Morris and David Fear debate. Plus, we answer very emotional reader mail about our recent "Greatest Emo Albums" list, and contributors Suzy Exposito and Brittany Spanos attempt to answer, once and for all, the big question: What the hell is emo? Also, Sheffield and Spanos talk about their favorite new songs from Car Seat Headrest, Parquet Courts and Mitski. 

Rolling Stone Music Now, hosted by Executive Editor Nathan Brackett, is a weekly podcast that features interviews with marquee artists, a look inside the week's hottest music news, a sampling of what’s playing in the Rolling Stone office and much more. Brackett is joined each week by a rotating panel of Rolling Stone's writers and editors.
