Must Hear Music Podcast: Jay Som

We have an eclectic list of recommendations on this week's Must-Hear Music, thanks in no small part to special guest Jay Som, who comes by the Billboard office to talk about five artists you should let into your life. 

But prior to picks from the singer-songwriter behind this year's excellent album Everybody Works, Billboard staffers discuss the debut solo single from One Direction singer Harry Styles, his expansive rock track "Sign of the Times." We also talk Jack White's new oddity "Battle Cry" and Banks' lovely, understated "Crowded Places."

Listen to this week's Must-Hear Music podcast below. You can skip ahead to Jay Som and her music recs -- The Spirit of the Beehive, The Courtneys, Girlpool, Hoops and Alex Napping -- at the 19:23 mark. This week's crew is Joe Lynch, Jason Lipshutz and Lyndsey Havens, and you can hit us up on Twitter with recommendations for the next podcast.
