What's to look forward to with this year's Green Man?
Tickets for Green Man Festival 2015 are now totally sold-out, and looking at this year's stellar line-up so far, there's no surprise there. With just eleven weeks to go, Green Man continue to unveil more upcoming surprises, so we take a look at what we know so far.
There's already a ton of great acts listed to play at the Brecon Beacons event in Wales, with a bill headed by Oklahoma singer St. Vincent, London collective Hot Chip, who have just released their newest album 'Why Make Sense?', and local Welshmen Super Furry Animals.
Listen to their new track 'Cumbia de Donde'.
With tour dates ahead of them and other miscellaneous events in the near future, Calexico are on the way to release their ninth album 'Edge Of The Sun', out on Berlin's City Slang in April this year and featuring various collaborators.
Calexico release 'Edge Of The Sun' in April
Calexico are set to unveil 'Edge Of The Sun', which follows up their 2013 live release 'Spiritoso' and the previous studio album 'Algiers' from 2012. In true Calexico spirit, as they are well-known for their ever changing line-up and huge touring band ensemble, 'Edge Of The Sun' features a huge variety of special guests, beginning with Iron & Wine's Sam Beam - having previously worked on their 2008 album 'Carried to Dust' - who features on the track 'Bullets and Rocks'.
It is a common occurrence for artists with long careers to try and change their surroundings in order to give themselves new stimuli, and therefore reignite the muse - Paul Simon did it with his trip to Graceland, as did Justin Vernon with his well-documented cabin in the woods episode that resulted in Bon Iver and the fantastic 'For Emma, Forever Ago'.

Calexico Interview Calexico front man Joey Burns Interviewed 12/02/03
Contact Music caught up with Calexico front man Joey Burns in a West End Hotel the morning after the bands triumphant gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire the night before. Sitting on the floor his legs crossed under the table, he is focused, attentive, and almost childlike in his enthusiasm, telling us in a friendly South Western drawl of his plans for the band. Over the next twenty minutes, we learn of his desire to write more soundtracks, his aversion to working for major film companies, his satisfaction with the new album, 'Feast of Wire', and his discomfort with the alt-country/Americana label. It seems that for Calexico, the times they are a changing.
Contact Music: So how are you enjoying London then?
