On this week's Must-Hear Music, as we near the release of Taylor Swift's Reputation album, we talk about her most recent track, "Call It What You Want." As it turns out, I brought a knife to a gunfight because my podcastmates aren't ready for it, but I think it's gorgeous.

We're on the same page with Miguel's "Told You So," though, the first single from his upcoming album War & Leisure. With N.E.R.D.'s "Lemon" featuring Rihanna, we all agree her verse is fire, even if one of us think it sounds too close to a Missy Elliott song Pharrell also worked on.

In the rising artist category, we look at Bushwick house queen Yaeji's "raingurl" and Tom Misch's sensual "Movie." Plus: Pinegrove's "Intrepid," a new entry in the Earnest New Jersey Rock canon.
