New music including The Raconteurs, Health, Westerman and Deerhunter on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

For the first show of 2019, I explored a few lesser-played releases from last year that I felt were worth catching up on, including Goat Girl, The Beths and Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, while the retro alternative set celebrated the new year with a block of tunes about that specific topic!
