New music including 100 gecs, Automatic, Alex G and Caroline Polachek on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued delving into recent releases from Vera Blue, Christine and the Queens, Phoenix, White Lung, The Orielles and Sorry on the show this week, while the retro alternative set explored some of the greats of the ’70s Krautrock movement in Germany, as well as a bunch of later songs that include that Krautrock-derived motorik beat, from Iggy Pop to Stereolab.
