New music including Courtney Barnett, Lower Dens, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Jessica Pratt on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

The snowstorm and a downed transmitter prevented me from doing my show at WMEB this week, so I’m trying something new and posting up a fresh podcast recorded from home! This week I premiered new music from Operators and Indiana, while the retro alternative set focused on some unjustly forgotten Brit bands of the late ’90s and early 2000s.
