New music including Hannah Jadagu, Beach Fossils, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Blonde Redhead on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Bar Italia, Mandy, Indiana, Arlo Parks, Blondshell, The National, Lana Del Rey, The Rubs and Alison Goldfrapp on the show this week, while the retro alternative set focused on late ’70s and early ’80s dance music, ranging from “pure” (but revolutionary!) disco (Dennis Parker, Donna Summer) to “mutant disco” (Ian Dury, Cristina) and post-punk (A Certain Ratio, ESG), all the way to Italo disco (Giorgio Moroder, Gino Soccio) and some weird outliers (Izumi Kobayashi, The Rolling Stones (!!??)).
