New music including Rhye, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Vera Blue and Charlotte Gainsbourg on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

For the first show of 2018, I dug deeper into recent releases from St. Vincent and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, while the retro alternative set marked this year’s upcoming 20th anniversary of West Of The Fields with a block of tunes I played during 1998 (and into early ’99), many of which I haven’t aired since the ’90s!
