New music including Phantogram, !!!, Clairo and Thom Yorke and Flea on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued exploring recent releases from Lana Del Rey, Bat For Lashes and Friendly Fires on the show this week, while the retro alternative set surveyed some of the classic post-punk bands like Joy Division, Magazine and Wire cited as inspirations for the Manic Street Preacher’s bleak 1994 classic “The Holy Bible,” which just marked its 25th anniversary.
