Kendal’s Wild Beasts are currently at the very top of their game, having risen through the ranks of the UK indie scene due to their four versatile albums. Fresh from releasing ‘Big Cat’, the band have essentially reimagined their sounds, pushing their boundaries of creativity even further. Stepping up to headline the Thursday evening at the Far Out Fields, this is going to be a celebratory show of epic proportions.
Jason Isbell is a country rock, American singer-songwriter from Alabama. Six years of being a former member of the Drive-By Truckers, he has craved his work into the status of being one of the finest American songwriters of his time. With his country licks and dusty rugged voice, it is the ideal soundtrack to hazy afternoons in the Brecon Beacons, he is definitely one not to miss.
Fuck Buttons (Benjamin John Buttons) is the mastermind behind Blanck Mass, the progressive electronic merchant. With his European tour starting in October, Green Man festival might be the last chance to catch his dark, pounding rhythms in this country for a short time. Soundtracking Saturday night after dark, this is assured to be a bizarre and wonderfully off centre rave keeping you away from your bed until the wee hours.
Flamingods are a five piece, psychedelic pop band situated in London. They state “we like to make noise with instruments collected from around the world.” Having recently released their fourth album ‘Majesty’ (June), they have been touring the UK with their rhythmic beats and soothing melodies created with the variety of different worldwide instruments.
Emma Pollock a Scottish, indie-rock singer-song writer that released her third solo album earlier this year. Pollock’s song writing is substantial and she has the vocal talents to go with it. ‘In Search of Harperfield’ marks a current career high as she combines the grumbling angst of ‘Parks and Recreation’ with the whimsical ‘Dark Skies’. Criminally underrated but guaranteed to perform fantastically well.
