New music including The Chemical Brothers, Olivia Rodrigo, Olof Dreijer and Blur on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Queens Of The Stone Age, The Japanese House, Sigur Rós and Blur on the show this week, while the retro alternative set delved into some classic shoegaze and dreampop from the ’90s and beyond, inspired by the recent Pitchfork Sunday Review of Lush’s 1992 debut album “Spooky.” The show had to end early due to a scheduling conflict with another program on WMEB, so consider this episode Part 1 of 2! Here’s the tracklist for the full show:
