New music including Bleached, Inhaler, Nilufer Yanya and The War On Drugs on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Melody’s Echo Chamber, The 1975, Jockstrap, Alvvays, The Orielles, Automatic, PVA and Editors on the show this week, while the retro alternative set featured a block of tunes specially requested by friend of the show Mr. Chris Peary for his birthday, as well as additional tunes chosen by me that were presumed to be in Mr. Peary’s “wheelhouse.” Here’s the tracklist for the full show:
