New music including Smashing Pumpkins, Christine and the Queens, Royksopp and Weyes Blood on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Special Interest, PVA, Arctic Monkeys, The Orielles, Vera Blue, Sorry, Dry Cleaning, Alex G, Phoenix and Broken Bells on the show this week, while the retro alternative set featured a long block of lesser known New Wave, synthpop and college rock tunes from the ’80s, some from fairly big names (Gang Of Four, ABC) and a lot from mostly obscure artists (Peter Godwin, Rational Youth).
