New music including Fever Ray, White Lung, Dry Cleaning and Gorillaz on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Weyes Blood, Arctic Monkeys, Automatic and Alex G on this show, which picked up where my suddenly abbreviated Part 1 left off (due to a date for surgery on my finger at the hospital!). I also tossed out three full different sections for today’s retro set: a block of Fleetwood Mac and solo tunes in honor of the late, great Christine McVie, a set of early ’00s NYC indie rock in recognition of the new documentary on the scene, “Meet Me In The Bathroom,” and a somewhat strange set of dance music, which begins with some classic disco (Donna Summer, Chic) and slowly transitions into weirder territory (Alan Vega, Was (Not Was)). Here’s the tracklist for this Part 2 portion of the show:
