New music including Special Interest, Vera Blue, Yves Tumor and Caroline Polachek on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Phoenix, PVA, Dry Cleaning, Sorry, Alex G, Junior Boys, Arctic Monkeys and The 1975 on the show this week, while the retro alternative set included a tribute to the great Mimi Parker, drummer and vocalist for the brilliant Minnesota indie rock band Low who passed away in late 2022, as well as a massive block of classic goth rock tunes, inspired by this recent Rolling Stone list of the 50 best goth songs of all time.
