New music including Romy and Fred again.., Young Fathers, Hatchie and Sharon Van Etten on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued delving into recent releases from Vera Blue, Special Interest, Christine and the Queens, Dry Cleaning, Alvvays, Phoenix and The 1975 on the show this week, while the retro alternative set contained a trio of tributes: a second one for Mimi Parker of Low, one for the brilliant post-punk guitarist Keith Levene of Public Image Ltd., and one for Sinéad O’Connor (who is thankfully still with us) in honor of the new documentary on her career, “Nothing Compares,” as well as a Part 2 of my epic goth rock set that began in last week’s show.
