Must Hear Music Podcast: Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty and Troye Sivan

After a bit of a hiatus, the Must-Hear Music podcast is back with an episode stuffed with big pop hits, a few obscure goodies and one very bizarre cover.

We talk about Father John Misty's Ryan Adams-mocking cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" in the style of Lou Reed (follow all that?) as well as the latest from one of her exes, One Direction's "Infinity."

Father John Misty's Taylor Swift Covers Are Gone, But Not Because of Her

While I'm repping hard for Lana Del Rey's "Terrence Loves You" from Honeymoon, Jason Lipshutz isn't having it -- but returning special guest John Norris has my back on that one. As for Norris, he brings up a wonderfully warped song called "World War Pt. 2" from Autre Ne Veut and Girl Band's abrasive "Pears for Lunch."

Elsewhere, we chat about Troye Sivan's assured "Wild," Day Wave's jangly "Come Home Now" and the surprisingly awesome "Cake by the Ocean" from Joe Jonas' band DNCE.
