New music including Hatchie, Future Islands, Dirty Projectors and Florence and The Machine on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I explored more from recent releases by Middle Kids, Soccer Mommy and Iceage on the show this week, while the retro alternative set looked back to the standout albums of 1991, inspired by U2’s surprising first-ever live airing of fan-favorite “Achtung Baby” deep cut “Acrobat” on the first night of their current tour.
