The surprise (and surprisingly successful, both commercially and artistically) reunion of the year reaches fruition today with the unveiling of Happiness Begins, the first full-length Jonas Brothers album since 2009's Lines, Vines and Trying Times. On the Must-Hear Music podcast, we're focusing in on the '80s-inflected "I Believe," one of its standout tracks.

Another Disney alum, Miley Cyrus, has new music out, too – but unlike the JoBros, she's embracing her inner hell-raiser with the EP She Is Coming, which harks back to the bad-girl Bangerz era. We talk about the gorgeous ballad "The Most," and have a showdown as to whether the RuPaul-featuring "Cattitude" is amazing or just too much.

It's been a little over a year since Avicii died at age 28, and his posthumous album Tim is here. We talk about the album, specifically the Vargas & Lagola-featuring "Peace of Mind."

Additionally, we chat about MUNA's expertly-crafted synth gem "Number One Fan," Bon Iver's new songs "Hey Ma" and "U (Man Like)" and Carlie Hanson's stunning "Hazel" and "Cigarettes."
