New music including Glasser, Sharon Van Etten, Sigur Ros and Sparks on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued delving into recent releases from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Jenny Lewis, Hannah Jadagu, Bar Italia, Squid, Arlo Parks, Bully and Feeble Little Horse on the show this week, while the retro alternative set featured albums from 1983 marking their 30th anniversaries this year, from alt-rock classics (Tears For Fears, New Order, Cocteau Twins) to brilliant but obscure gems from overseas (Yellow Magic Orchestra, Matia Bazar, Mioko Yamaguchi) to total oddballs worth hearing (Francesco Messina, Marc and the Mambas).
