New music including Grimes, Little Dragon, Arctic Monkeys and The Decemberists on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent albums from The 1975, Robyn, Smashing Pumpkins and Miya Folick on the show this week, while the retro alternative set peered into the future of retro with a look back at 2009, which hits the decade-old mark next year and thus becomes eligible for the retro alternative set under my silly, made-up, self-imposed rules 😀  Here’s the tracklist for the full show:
