New music including Warpaint, How To Dress Well, Father John Misty and Chairlift on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

Back from another summer week off, I debuted a bunch of new tracks on the show, including music from Wild Beasts, Merchandise, Sleigh Bells and Glass Animals, while the retro alternative set commemorated the 35th anniversary of MTV’s first day broadcasting (and the debut of the new MTV Classic channel) with a set of songs that were aired on the fledging network that day back in 1981.
