New music including Kim Gordon, Jay Som, Julien Baker and Liz Phair on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent records from Big Thief, Angel Olsen, DIIV and Chromatics on the show this week, while the retro alternative set marked the 40th anniversary of Fleetwood Mac’s wild (and increasingly influential in the indie-rock world) “Tusk” album with a trio of tracks from the record, along with some other classics from the year it was released, 1979.
