New music including The Shins, Belle and Sebastian, Angel Olsen and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

On this last show of 2017, I explored a few overlooked releases from this year with songs from The Afghan Whigs, Priests and The Courtneys, looked forward to possible 2018 releases from Vampire Weekend, Sky Ferreira and Chvrches, and headed back to the year 1990 for a retro alternative set.
