New music including Susanne Sundfør, Father John Misty, Belle and Sebastian and The Go! Team on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

The BBC’s Sound of 2015 longlist inspired me to play a host of new artists on the show this week, including outstanding tracks from Years & Years, Låpsley, Rae Morris and Shura, while the retro alternative section looked back 20 years to some of the many stellar albums of 1995.
