New music including Clairo, Miya Folick, Morrissey and Yeasayer on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I continued digging into recent releases from The National, Vampire Weekend, Local Natives and Charly Bliss on the show this week, while the retro alternative set focused on jangly indie-pop bands from the ’80s until now, inspired by Pitchfork’s recent Sunday Review of Felt’s 1986 classic “Forever Breathes The Lonely Word.”
