Since it’s nearly impossible to keep up with all the features that flood social media feeds all week, we did some of the digging for you. Here’s a handful of stories that are worth a click this weekend:

- Flavorwire broke down “music’s week of misogyny”.

- Ned Raggett wrote a lengthy, well-researched retort to a New York Times editorial about streaming.

- Grantland’s Sean Fennessey defended his love of Big Sean.

The Wall Street Journal got Thurston Moore to admit how much he misses playing with Sonic Youth.

- FADER explained why we all need Run the Jewels in our lives, and Stereogum devoted a digital cover story to their new record.

- Pitchfork’s The Out Door column explored the year’s most overlooked experimental records.

- SPIN looked at the recurring symbols in Taylor Swift songs.

- And on Wondering Sound, we went on the road with Joanna Grumesome, interviewed heavy-metal icon King Diamond, and played catch up with classic Pavement records.
