Boris
Feedbacker

'Feedbacker' is Japanese experimental metal band Boris’ masterpiece, encompassing one song divided into five distinct movements. The piece shape-shifts from drone metal to psychedelia, bleeding into stoner metal and glorious noise where even the percussion distorts! ‘Feedbacker’ is a record which perfectly highlights Boris’ chameleonic tendencies, making it an essential record for fans of post-metal, psych rock, drone and noise rock.

Boris
Akuma No Uta

Never fear - although they may share a name with our troublesome and idiotic prime minister, Boris are excellent, combining ultra-heavy riffing with thunderous percussion ever since they came into being in 1992. Third Man Records re-issues their 2003 album, Akuma No Uta, to collide with a brand new American tour. 

Boris
LφVE & EVφL

Borises aren’t all bad. Overlords of Japanese drone/doom/stoner psychedelic rock, Boris, are back with a double album. LφVE & EVφL sees the band continue to find new ways in which to cleave your mind apart. If you’re unfamiliar with Boris but like Sunn 0))), Sonic Youth et al, then you’ll love this. Also recommended for fans of Boris.

The White Stripes
White Blood Cells

White Blood Cells was the third album by brother/sister duo (whaaaat? hang on...no) ok from ex couple duo Jack and Meg White as the White Stripes. After their two previous albums started making waves across the sweaty clubs of the UK this was the first one to really break through and features such future classics as Hotel Yorba and Fell In Love With A Girl. Still sounding as fresh as a daisy, it's a further reminder that Jack White's music was so much better when constricted by Meg's rudimentary but intuitive drumming.  

Ghost Wolves
Crooked Cop

Crooked Cop is the new single from Austin, Texas duo, Ghost Wolves. They mix rootsy blues, punk and garage and add the modern twist of electronic sounds here and there - this is something you’ll know if you have any of their 5 albums, of course. This new 45 is the perfect sound for Third Man Records. 

Alexis Zoumbas
A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928

Alexis Zoumbas was a Greek folk-violinist who knocked about in the early 20th Century. Back in 2014 the Angry Mom Archives label got together A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928, a collection of expressive and mournful fiddle pieces to stir the soul. Having sold out pretty damn quickly on first release, Third Man have now decided to snap up the collection for a new pressing. Their edition of A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928 comes with a bonus 7” that features two tracks not included on the 2014 version. If you like the work of Death Is Not The End then this one’ll do you nicely.

Jack White
Lazaretto

The main thing to note about Jack White's second solo album Lazaretto is that it plays from the inside out. Yup stick your needle in the middle and watch it head towards the outer groove. While you are at it you'll have to listen to Jack's increasingly bloated hair-rock  - sort of the exact opposite thing to what he was doing in the White Stripes. But that vinyl huh? Amazing. 

Iron and Wine
Live at Third Man Records

The latest in a seemingly unending, but very welcome, series Live At Third Man, sees Sam Beam bring Iron & Wine to the Blue Room in Nashville. Beam kept his backing band as minimal as possible to make this a genuinely affecting and moving performance. Songs from albums Our Endless Numbered Days, Ghost on Ghost and his rarities compilation, Around The Well are featured.

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean sounds more like an algorithmically-generated Third Man Records artist than an actual human who Jack White brought into the fold (and, if the rumours are to be believed, was romantically involved with at one point). But hey ho, I guess the man who probably gets his friends to all call him Spooky Johnny Depp has a nose for a signing too. ‘Night Owl’ is the first single from Jean’s upcoming LP of the same name, and the girl-group-indebted garage-surf tune is indeed a fine bit of Third Manitude. This 7” release of the track comes backed with Jean’s cover of the Bollywood classic ‘Jaan Pehechaan Ho’.

Bush Tetras
There Is A Hum

More new music from no wave legends Bush Tetras comes in the form of 7” single, There’s A Hum, on Third Man Records. It follows the release of 2018’s Take The Fall EP (Wharf Cat) which was their first new material in more than a decade. Bush Tetras are now made up from original members, Cynthia Sley, Dee Pop, and Pat Place with Val Opielski on bass replacing Laura Kennedy who sadly died in 2011. 

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Trout Mask Replica

Well, what can be said about this masterpiece of a record that hasn't been uttered a hundred times before? A timely reissue then of Captain Beefheart's absurdist, Dadaist epic romp through art-blues, 'Trout Mask Replica'. None other than Jack White himself has seen fit to re-re-vinyl-ise this at his Third Man record plant. Complete with original cover art tracked down from its 1969 source. On 180-gram black double LP.

The White Stripes
Lord Send Me An Angel / You're Pretty Good Looking For a Girl (Trendy American Remix)

Back before Jack White took it upon himself to be The Most Serious Man In The World he was actually quite funny. Case in point - this 2000 single from The White Stripes and its ‘Trendy American Mix’ of De Stijl highlight ‘You’re Pretty Good Looking (For A Girl)’. It’s the same song, but White’s vocals have been hyper-autotuned in a manner that transcends its novelty value and becomes actually just good. The other side of this 7”, originally put out as a Stripes tour single and now reissued by Third Man, is a cover of Blind Willie McTell’s ‘Lord Send Me An Angel’.

Jack White
Lazaretto / Power Of My Love

'Lazaretto' is the first single from Jack White's second album, cunningly also called 'Lazaretto', being released on his very own Third Man Records. Why Jack White is writing songs about maritime quarantine stations, only he knows. The track is backed on the flip by exclusive tune 'Power Of My Love'.

Earth
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White, bless him, facilitates something worthwhile every now and then. This live album was recorded to tape (nice!) last year in the Blue Room at Third Man Records in Nashville, where Dylan, Adrienne and co played support to Boris (whose set from that night is being released simultaneously). Four long tracks that originally appeared on four different studio albums. Limited LP released for the imported dystopian nightmare that is Black Friday.

Bill Callahan
Live at Third Man Records

The latest record in Third Man Records’ Live At Third Man Records series finds the label/shop/Jack White vanity project hosting famed alt-country sadster Bill Callahan. The autumnal poetry of The Artist Formerly Known As Smog is magnified in his spare live show. These recordings expertly capture concert Callahan.

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean is back on Third Man with a perhaps more sensibly-titled album than 2014's 'Bathtub Love Killings'. On that debut album Jean played almost every instrument but this time it's a collaborative effort backed by some hip new buddies. The result is a candy sweet album full of fuzzed out neo-surf rock which brings to mind the alien twang of the likes of the B52s and Dick Dale.

Ann Arbor - Blues Festival 1969

The Ann Arbor Blues Festival 1969 was America’s first blues festival. And boy did they get a cast of characters together! B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Son House, Big Mamma Thornton, Mississippi Fred McDowell are among the legendary acts performing. It’s all previously unheard stuff, unless of course, you were there. But you weren’t, were you?

The Raconteurs
Consolers Of The Lonely

In 2008 The Raconteurs' legendary second album was released. 'Consolers of the Lonely' is a diverse exploration of modern rock music, including horn sections, murder ballads, and punky vocals, all tied together by the guitar playing of that bloke from the White Stripes. Released on Third Man Records, this is a must-have for fans of blues, rock 'n' roll, and guitars.

The Raconteurs
Help Us Stranger

After more than a decade away (and by away we mean separately playing constantly in many various other groups), The Raconteurs unite for a third studio album, Help Us Stranger. With Brendan Benson and Jack White at the core, the group’s Nashville recording sessions yielded a rich bounty of rock, drawing on blues, soul, funk and country for a tasty all-American album. Help Us Stranger is released by White’s Third Man Records.

Lillie Mae
Other Girls

Nashville singer/songwriter Lillie Mae caught the ears of a certain Jack White who produced her debut album, Forever and Then Some in 2017. Her new album, Other Girls, is produced by Dave Cobb. Cobb has worked with many country artists from Sturgill Simpson to Chris Stapleton, and won Grammys in the process. He has added a polish to Lillie Mae’s sound. 

The Hives
I'm Alive

It’s been five years since Swedish rockers, The Hives, released any new material. For some of us, the guy writing this for example, it’s seems even longer. So for those of us who have forgotten about them or were just wondering what had happened to them, their new single, 'I’m Alive', makes a statement suggesting that they are, indeed, still very much around. 'I’m Alive' is backed with 'Good Samaritan', on Third Man Records.

Mdou Moctar
Blue Stage Sessions

Live album by Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar recorded live at Third Man Records' Cass Corridor space. Moctar is a virtuoso on the guitar and you can feel utter adoration of the Detroit crowd as they lay witness to his Blue Stage Sessions. For this performance he was accompanied by band mates Ahmoudou Madassane and Mahmoud Ahmed Jabra on guitar and drums. 

Jack White
Boarding House Reach

Jack is back. First new album for four years for the former White Stripes polymath. This time he holed himself up in an apartment and let his creativity run wild. Boarding House Reach explores rock and roll, punk, electro, gospel and everything in between. A tour de force of his abilities to experiment and surprise. 

Dinosaur Jr.
Blue Room Sessions

Third Man Records love a live session, and they also love 7”s. Makes sense, then, that they’ve brought the two together in perfect harmony. This one comes courtesy of the ageing band of John Hughes protagonists that are Dinosaur Jr.. For their latest trick, they turn in a pair of songs that are by Dinosaur Jr..

Jack White
Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016

Here’s the opportunity for a different angle on the busy career of Jack White. While White is usually electrified, these are Jack White Acoustic Recordings, and they span his whole career to date, from 1998 White Stripes material to 2016 solo material. Includes some real deep cuts to delight the serious White fan. All audio has been remastered.

The Distillers
Man vs Magnet / Blood In Gutters

After 14 years releasing nothing, The Distillers returned in 2018 with a downloadable single. Man vs. Magnet is now available in its physical form. It is backed with Blood In Gutters. Both tracks show the band to be still full of raucous raw punk energy and melodic hooks. 7” single on Third Man.

The White Stripes
The White Stripes

The White Stripes debut album was originally released in 1999. The album was produced by Jack White and fellow Detroit musician Jim Diamond, the bass player with The Dirtbombs. As well as original material, the album features some covers including Robert Johnson’s Stop Breaking Down, which was also covered by The Rolling Stones on Exile On Main Street and Bob Dylan’s One More Cup Of Coffee.   The White Stripes is available on vinyl LP on Jack White’s own Third Man label.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 1

Jack White’s Third Man Records project reaches its logical conclusion with a set of John Lee Hooker reissues. Originally released in 1973, Detroit And Beyond Vol. 1 collects some of the famed bluesman’s earliest recordings. Many of these tracks were cut at a studio but a stone's throw away from where the Third Man store now resides.

David Nance Group
Meanwhile

Ploughing a lonely furrow of re-interpreting traditional rock influences for the last few years, the David Nance Group’s leader takes the step up from the American underground scene to release their first 7” single on Jack White’s Third Man imprint. ‘Meanwhile’ is a lo-fi throwback, but tremendous amounts of fun. 

Long Hots
Nickle & Dime / Give & Take

Nickel & Dime / Give & Take is the debut single from Philadelphia three-piece, Long Hots. Their lo-fi take on rock ‘n’ roll and blues is reminiscent of classic rock bands such as Stooges, Dead Moon and the solo work of Moe Tucker. Third Man Records have pretty much worn out their copy of their Monday Night Raw cassette, so are delighted to pressing some of their songs to vinyl.

POW!
Switchboard Scientist

San Franciscan band Pow! Mix garage rock and synthpunk. Think Devo meets Thee Oh Sees, the latter just happen to be label mates. With four albums behind them on Castle Face, they decided to nip in to Third Man Records in Detroit and rip through a couple of banging tunes. There are here for your delectation on a 7” called Switchboard Scientist.

Melvins
Houdini

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later). Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Reissued for your pleasure on lovely gatefold vinyl.

JAY Z
Magna Carta... Holy Grail

A fancy limited edition of Jay Z’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail on Jack White’s Third Man Records. They don’t make it easy for ya at Third Man; the gatefold double vinyl LP comes with an exclusive non-album track which you play using a postcard only accessible by literally slicing into your record sleeve. As for the music, you probably know it by now, but if not, then maybe you know some Kanye West? It sounds like that too. 180g double vinyl LP.

Death From Above 1979
Live at Third Man Records

Death From Above 1979 recorded these live jams at Third Man studios, under the wise eyes of “patron saint of vibes” (their description) Jack White. That decade away didn’t dull their edge: DFA 1979 still sound like a fierce, noisy blast of sweaty fun. Released on White’s Third Man label.

Oozelles
Every Night They Hack Off A Limb

7” single released on Jack White’s Third Man Records from Los Angeles-based Oozelles (fka Fake News). Consisting of members of Warpaint, Sex Stains and Jail Weddings, ‘Every Night They Hack Off a Limb’ is a breakneck thriller of bizarro punk, and B-side ‘Human Trafficking’ contrasts by going in a soulful direction.

  • Third Man

AJJ
Live at Third Man Records

AJJ used to be known as Andrew Jackson Jihad. They’re a folk punk band from Arizona led by the duo of Sean Bonnette and Ben Gallaty. They have a revolving door policy for the rest of the band. Their live shows are frenetic affairs with air-punching anthems, of which, their loyal fan base know every word. Live At Third Man captures their live magic perfectly.

Jack White
Over and Over and Over

If you couldn't face delving into Jack's Boarding House Reach folly then never fear. Here you can listen to it's only listenable moment without having to wade through the other bits. There's a spoken word piece on the flip which gives you a taste of the sort of ridiculous music you can expect from the album.    

Griot Galaxy
Kins

Griot Galaxy painted their faces silver, read poetry at their gigs and played oddball jazz. Kins, their 1982 masterpiece,  is one of those much sought-after, legendary rare albums, made more rare by the fact that 1800 copies of the original pressing were accidentally binned. The Detroit band had the spirit of John Coltrane and Sun Ra coursing through their veins.

Guitar Wolf
LOVE&JETT

Guitar Wolf have been ripping a noisy and chaotic hole in the world of garage rock for over 30 years. They could be described as noisier, faster Jon Spencer Blues Explosion who sing in Japanese. They’ve not been shy of the odd cover cover version the years, Eddie Cochran’s 'Summertime Blues' perhaps being their most famous. On their new album LOVE&JETT they opt for the Spencer Davis Group hit 'Gimme Some Lovin’'.

Wallows
Live at Third Man Records

Suppose we’ve been getting this wrong all along. Suppose the Live At Third Man Records series isn’t a set of concert recordings given at Jack White’s boudoir. Suppose it’s LIVE At Third Man Records - as in, this lot LIVE there. All these rock bands pacing the corridors, smoking in corners, playing cards - generally idling, loitering, waiting for the moment that Mr. White calls their number and they’re ushered upstairs to play. ‘Hey, Wallows, you’re up’ barks Mr. White, nails grubby, Willy Wonka suit fraying at the elbows and knees; ‘and do the hits - I’m not keeping you here ‘cos I like you, y’know’. Lights on. The band play, the crowd cheers, and they’re sent back downstairs. For how long, no-one knows. After all, there are some people who Live At Third Man Records their whole life...

Lightnin' Hopkins
Strums The Blues

Any self-respecting blues fan will have some Lightnin’ Hopkins in their collection. Strums The Blues is going to be a great addition to that collection. It’s a rare compilation album of the Texas bluesman’s work, reissued for the first time. It features new artwork by Tim Kerr, known for his involvement in the US DIY hardcore punk scene.

Courtney Barnett
Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)

Boxing Day Blues (Revisited) by Courtney Barnett is the latest in the Blue Series of singles to be released on Jack White’s Third Man Records. It is also produced by Jack White. The A Side is the postscript to Boxing Day Blues, which closed Barnett’s critically acclaimed Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit album in brilliant yet solemn fashion. The b-side is a cover of Shivers, which was written by Roland S. Howard for the pre-Birthday Party band Boys Next Door. Essential for Courtney Barnett fans!

Sleep
Leagues Beneath

Described on the press release as a '17 minute plunge' this is the first new material from legendary stoners Sleep following on from their much acclaimed The Sciences LP on Third Man. Recorded as a part of a series of songs for Adult Swim this is said to be 'a right good aural experience' (our words). 
  • Label(s):
  • Third Man

Sleep
The Sciences

Weed obsessed stoner rock legends Sleep release their first album since Dopesmoker on 4/20 as a nod to the code-term in cannabis culture and day of celebratory toking. 'The Sciences' feature six tracks of relentless, stoned and heavy psychedelic metal from chess master Al Cisneros also of Om, High on Fire axe wielder Matt Pike and Neurosis stickman Jason Roeder.

A-Moms
Strawberry Cheesecake / Modern Noise

Third Man aficionados among you will have spotted the label’s recent Algebra Mothers compilation A-Moms = Algebra Mothers. That LP was an odds-and-sods collection focussed on long-defunct Detroit punks A-Moms. The band only released one single when together, the 1979 split ‘Strawberry Cheesecake’/‘Modern Noise’, so Third Man have decided to complete the circle and reissue that one as well. This is chaotic, maniacal new wave from a group who count Pere Ubu among their fans.

Death From Above 1979
Heads Up Demos

Heads Up Demos, by Canadian elephant-nosed bass and drum duo Death From Above 1979, contains demo versions (believe it or not) of songs from their very first EP which was called Heads Up (believe it or not). It is released on 7” through Third Man Records. The cover comes in three different colours which are distributed at random, so don’t pin yr hopes on getting the lovely green one pictured.

The Morning Echoes Of Detroit
Echoes Of The Gospel

The Morning Echoes Of Detroit are gospel group. They formed way back in the pre-back-in-the-day days of the 1940s. Echoes Of The Gospel was originally released in 1967. Singer/songwriter Kelley Stoltz sent a copy of this album to Third Man Records as a thank you gift. The label were so pleased they decided to reissue it. LP on Third Man Records, remastered from original 1967 master tapes by Warren Defever.

Tanzania Albinism Collective
White African Power (We Live In Danger) / Stigma Everywhere

If you live in Tanzania and are albino, life is damn hard. The country’s albino population have long been attacked, ostracised and persecuted. Many are abandoned by their families on Ukerewe, an inland island that can only be reached by a four-hour ferry trip. In 2016 the Tinariwen producer Ian Brennan travelled to Ukerewe to run songwriting workshops with the island’s albino community. Considering that many of those involved initially had no confidence to either sing or dance, the fact that the Tanzania Albinism Collective have made a record at all is a great triumph. That ‘White African Power (We Live In Danger)’ and ‘Stigma Everywhere’ are such potent pieces of protest music only makes them more necessary.

The White Stripes
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself / Who's To Say

Two covers here, actually: while this 7" project offers one White Stripes single plus one White Stripes cover, "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" was originally written by Burt Bacharach and familiarized by a soft, serenely romantic adaptation by way of Dusty Springfield. There's the Stripes' pretty raw, half-punx version on here, plus "Who's To Say", originally Blanche's. 

The Detroit Cobras
What More / I Can’t Go Back

Just in case any of you were still in any doubt that Jack White doesn’t put on for his hometown, the former White Stripe has signed a band with Detroit in its name to Third Man Records. Let his love for the motor city lie unquestioned until his dying day. Apparently ‘What More’/‘I Can’t Go Back’ are the first new recordings that The Detroit Cobras have released in a decade, though as they’re both covers we can’t go so far as to call them new material. Either way, they are both definitely garage rock.

Escape-ism
Live at Third Man Records

Ian Svenonius - he of Chain And The Gang and The Nation Of Ulysses fame - has been busying himself with his Escape-ism project of late. It sounds pretty much exactly like what you'd imagine a Svenonius solo endeavour would sound like. Live At Third Man Records does a good job of capturing Escape-ism’s freakified Jonathan Richman thing.

The Rebel
Riding In The Sun / Why Must I Pay

Country Teasers mainman Ben Wallers is also The Rebel, and it is under this guise that he does some of his most fascinating work. Outsider punk that peels the genre apart and shows you some of its guts and contradictions. Here The Rebel presents two tracks on a seven inch single on Jack White’s Third Man.

This Is The Kit
Live at Third Man Records

This Is The Kit find the sublime in the humdrum on this new live 7”. Masterminded by Kate Stables, This Is The Kit have been recording since 2003, with records coming out on labels like Rough Trade and Brassland. Recorded live, ‘Cold and Got Colder’ comes out via Third Man Records, and sees Stables further explore her niche of shuffling, disjointed songwriting, pairing subdued soloing with stellar brass interplay.

Laughing Hyenas
Life of Crime

Life Of Crime was the second album by Michigan garage rock band Laughing Hyenas. Released in 1990, it’s arguably their finest moment, with the band mixing the power of punk with conviction of the blues. It was produced by Butch Vig, and it has been said that it was his work on this album that led him to produce Nirvana’s Nevermind and Sonic Youth’s Dirty. LP on Third Man.

Laughing Hyenas
Hard Times + Crawl / Covers

Laughing Hyenas were a garage rock band from Michigan. Their last album was Hard Times, released in 1995 on Touch & Go. It saw the band eschewing their usual Nick Cave-meets-Iggy Pop aesthetic in favour of some Chicago blues heroes such as Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. This reissue on Third Man pairs the album with their final two EPs, Crawl and Covers. Liner notes by original Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert and Allyson Baker from Dirty Ghosts. Double LP on Third Man Records.

Why?
Live at Third Man Records

Why? are a hip-hop inspired indie band fronted by Yoni Wolf. Following the release of their most recent album, last year's Moh Lhean, Why? played at Third Man Records - the Chocolate Factory to Jack White's Willy Wonka. Live at Third Man Records is a raucous reminder of the night.

A-Square (Of Course)

King Of The Hill Mr. Jack White loves nothing more than a bit of ol’ timey garage rock. Indeed, reissuing lost records by ancient Midwestern proto-punks is probably the thing that drags him into the Third Man Records office every morning. As such, he’s probably loving every minute of A-Square (Of Course). This one’s a compilation LP of Detroit scuzz-rock focussed on the city’s influential A-Square Records. MC5 are on here. A young Iggy Pop plays drums and does the vox for The Prime Movers.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 2

Third Man Records reissue two volumes of early John Lee Hooker recordings. The Detroit And Beyond records originally emerged in the early 1970's but actually date from much earlier in Hooker’s career. Given their age it's no surprise that these dusty old blues ditties have had a remastering job for this release - done from the original tapes, no less.

Craig Brown Band
Big City Small Town

Craig Brown Band follow-up their debut album, The Lucky Ones, with Big City Small Town, a 7” single that meshes garage-rock with country. Since their debut album, they have toured with country...legend, probably….Dwight Yokam and now are about to embark on a European tour for the first time. 7" on Third Man.

Father John Misty
Live at Third Man Records

Shy and retiring songwriter Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) made a rare public appearance in September 2017 and it just happened to be at Third Man studios on Nashville. Much to his embarrassment presumably, the whole thing was taped and has now been released on an LP. The songs cover all three Father John Misty releases and sees him strip things back a bit compared to the lavish studio arrangements.       

Parquet Courts
Live at Third Man Records

Those hip New York punksters Parquet Courts head on down to Jack White’s Third Man Records in Detroit. They play a show, to rapturous reception, and then cut said show straight into the deep grooves of a vinyl LP, old-time style (just how Jack likes it). Unvarnished and direct, Live At Third Man Records is very nice.

Kevin Morby Live At Third Man Records contains stripped-back versions of Destroyer and Black Flowers, which originally appear on his third album, Singing Saw. Morby has now released four solo albums since his time as bass player for lo-fi folk rockers Woods and frontman for indie rock band The Babies. 7” on Third Man Records.

Boris
Live at Third Man Records

Last year the long-running Tokyo heavy rockers marked the ten year anniversary of their landmark stoner opus PINK by playing it in full and at massive volume at Nashville’s Third Man Records. Happily, the Blue Room is kitted out with a snazzy analogue recording setup, so the set was committed to (actual) tape. This limited Black Friday LP release features five tracks from that night (and a companion release of Earth’s support set is also available).

Give Me My Flowers

Give Me My Flowers is a celebration of Nashboro Records, a label founded by Ernie Young in 1951, to release the most exciting and effusive gospel music coming out of Nashville at the time. Who better then Third Man to compile these tracks then, a label whose output has been heavily informed by the gospel music tradition.

Jack White
Ice Station Zebra

Third Man have done pretty well to find another single to release from the album Pitchfork described as "a long, bewildering slog" - the near impossi-listen 'Boarding House Reach'. Yet here it is and it is backed with a track not deemed good enough to even make it on to that endless absurdity.   

Lilly Hiatt & Aaron Lee Tasjan
Luck Mansion Sessions

Jack White’s Third Man Records has teamed up with Luck Reunion to record a series of live-in-the-studio collaborative sessions. American roots music is the name of the game, and this edition features the pairing of Lilly Hiatt and Aaron Lee Tasjan, two artists with big open country hearts. 7” release on Third Man.

Jack White
Connected By Love / Respect Commander

Jack White continues ploughing his solo furrow with a new single on his Nashville-based Third Man label. It’s a double A-sided affair containing the tracks Connected By Love and Respect Commander. A new album will follow at some point in the not too distant future and Jack White has already alerted us to the fact that it’s ‘bizarre’. 7” single on Third Man.

Well well well. What have we here. Seems Jack White’s Third Man Records have gone and done themselves another live session. We told you about those, didn’t we now Jack.

The White Stripes
Hotel Yorba (Live At Hotel Yorba)

The original release of Hotel Yorba lit the blue touch paper for The White Stripes career. The single was released when XL licensed the White Blood Cells album from Sympathy For The Record Industry. The song was their first to hit the UK Top 40, reaching no.26. Hotel Yorba is reissued on 7” vinyl through Third Man.

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatefold edition, mastered from the original analog tapes. Or, the single LP (as per the original pressing) on Music On Vinyl.

Joshua Hedley
Broken Man

Joshua Hedley was only the second country artist to sign to Third Man Records following Margo Price. This tells you that he’s a country artist with some credibility. Broken Man 7” came about due to Hedley’s insistence that 10 song albums are the best. When making his debut album, Mr. Jukebox, he recorded 12 songs - two too many. So here we have the remaining two tracks. Originally released on coloured vinyl for RSD in 2018, this is a new black vinyl version.

Diana Ross and the Supremes
Supreme Rarities: Motown Lost & Found

Jack White’s Third Man label are dabbling with the mainstream. Working with record industry behemoths Universal they have packaged their 2008 double CD release of Diana Ross & The Supremes - Supreme Rarities: Motown Lost & Found as a spectacular 4 LP box set. It has the honour of being the first Motown record to be pressed in Motor City itself. You'll hear them cover The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Stevie Wonder along with 45 other tracks.

Jack White
Sixteen Saltines

What does it say on that there cover? ‘If you talk too much this man may die!’. Yikes. And who’s the bloke in question … why, it’s none other than Jack White. How did rock’s Willy Wonka manage to get himself in such a predicament? Well, it’s probably something to do with the fact that he keeps doing silly things - things like releasing his Seussian single ‘Sixteen Saltines’ as ‘a playable etching’. And if that wasn’t silly enough he’s only gone and covered U2 on the B-side. Jack, what were you thinking?! Now you’ve gone and got yourself in a right mess. Best we’d better shut up if we want to keep you alive… … Or maybe ... ... la la la la la la la la la la la ... ... oops ...

Jack White
That Black Bat Licorice

Third time’s a charm certainly rings true with Jack White’s third single from new album Lazaretto. That Black Bat Licorice recaptures some of the outlandish skronk and idiosyncratic attitude to the blues that made him so compelling with The White Stripes. B-side features a cover of Harry Connick Jr’s Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There). Out on 7” from Third Man Records of course.

The White Stripes
Seven Nation Army /Good To Me

You know that song with the riff? I've heard it's a pretty good riff. "Seven Nation Army" is perhaps the most iconic White Stripes song there is, responsible for Jack White thinking many great things of himself, and this 7" pronounces that greatness, plus a b-side called "Good To Me", a cover by way of Brendan Benson. The riff is in tact. It has not been removed from the song. We still have the riff.

Jack White
Would You Fight For My Love?

Jack White is kinda turning into that guy who crashes on your sofa for a week and refuses to leave, only he'll probably record the moment you lose your temper and release it as part of a spoken word classic for Third Man Records. But yeah, the White Stripe is still here, would you believe: he's got another 7" single courtesy of Lazaretto, fronted by "Would You Fight For My Love?" and complemented by the all new "Parallel".

The White Stripes
Lets Shake Hands

Back to where it all began. The Let’s Shake Hands 7” is the first thing ever released by a certain White Stripes, and it laid down the gauntlet in style. ‘Let’s Shake Hands’ and ‘Look Me Over Closely’ are raw garage-punk wheezes of the kind that would be all over their debut LP. The fact that the latter was originally performed by Marlene Dietrich introduces that element of Weimar surrealism that Jack and Meg were so good at in the early days. This here edition is a Third Man reissue.

SHIRT
Pure Beauty

Queens based artist designer and all round mystery person SHIRT is the first hip-hop artist to be signed to Third Man. This is an intelligent and thoughtful take on the genre exemplified in the fact that this album is an ode to conceptual artist artist John Baldessari.  Focusing on raw and simple beauty the album is a combination of high art and lo-fi aspiration.

Sun Seeker
Georgia Dust

Sun Seeker are a Nashville group who are only now being revealed to the wider world, through the efforts of Jack White’s Third Man Records. Georgia Dust is their debut single, and marks out a rich, country-influenced americana territory. A beautiful, melancholy way to make a start. 7” vinyl single.

Pill
Live at Third Man Records

Brooklyn punks Pill come through with one of the most unusual and thrilling releases in the Live At Third Man Records 7” series. The live setting makes the band’s already-frenzied no wave by turns more no-ey and more wave-y. ‘Afraid of the Mirror’, for instance, pits garbled vox and sax against a thick Kraut-punk groove before slipping into a discordant shuffle reminiscent of Shopping or The Slits.

Waxahatchee
Live at Third Man Records

Katie Crutchfield’s Waxahatchee project follows in the footsteps of Chain & The Gang, Shabazz Palaces, Kid Congo and loads more by releasing in the Live At Third Man Records series. Stripping away the beefy post-grunge stylings of her studio LPs, this two-track 7" features little more than acoustic guitar and Crutchfield’s powerful alto. The stark treatment makes her cover of Lucinda Williams’s ‘Greenville’ a particularly arresting treat.

The White Stripes
Merry Christmas From...

Originally cut in 1998 for a Flying Bomb Records Christmas single, The White Stripes’ ‘Candy Cane Children’ was reissued first in 2002 and then again in 2011 by (among other labels) Jack White’s own Third Man. This is the latter reissue that we’re dealing with here. ‘Candy Cane Children’ is the kind of rawer-than-raw garage-blues stomp that Jack and Meg built their empire on. The Merry Christmas From… B-sides find the duo getting a bit more festive - Meg sings ‘Silent Night’ while Jack reads from the Bible. God bless us, every one.

Marching Church
Live at Third Man Records

Ellias Bender Ronnenfelt (Iceage’s tortured artist in residence) takes his Marching Church project to Third Man Records. The live treatment suits Ronnenfelt very well. While his Scandi-Nick Cave thing can come across a bit laboured on his studio LPs, the frenzy of recording in the moment lends great bluster to these two pieces of Gothic Americana.

Fucked Up
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White’s Third Man label continue their live sessions, pushing the pure analog love affair. These live ssions have covered an incredible array of artists, from Shabazz Palaces to The Shins, all recorded straight to tape and onto acetate. This time round it’s Canadian post-hardcore meddlers Fucked Up performing tracks spanning their releases 2009-2015.

Woods
Live at Third Man Records

Woods are a reliably American band who’ve been mixing folk and soul and funk and indie for a decade now. This particular release documents what happened when Woods played a live set at Jack White’s Third Man Records, recorded in meticulous analogue detail on audio-lover White’s special equipment.

The White Stripes
There's No Home For You Here / I Fought Piranhas

The White Stripes invite you to remember a time when they released killer singles and existed as a band and whatnot; that time had something to do with an Elephant, if I recall, and "There's No Home For You Here" is invited along in the crew of 7"s that seeks to canonize their best moment. Comes with a b-side known as "I Fought Piranhas".

SQURL
Paterson: Original Film Score

Paterson is a film by Jim Jarmusch, and get this: the soundtrack is by him as well. Sqürl is Jim along with Carter Logan, and their previous work has leaned hard into psychedelic rock territory. Here though they take a slightly different approach in order to best serve the film, using analogue synthesisers and glass harmonicas to create a spacier atmosphere. Released by Third Man.

Muddy Waters
Electric Mud

In 1968 Chess Records teamed Muddy Waters up with Chicago rockers Rotary Connection. It was a rather calculated attempt to sell the older bluesman to hippies, and the result was a somewhat forced grafting of obvious psych tropes over Muddy’s standards and a cover of the Stones’ "Let's Spend the Night Together". It shouldn’t be the first port of call for those new to Waters, or anyone seeking the best in post-psychedelic era heavy blues. It is however an intriguing and very period-specific curio that would later lend samples to Cypress Hill and Gorillaz. Lavish reissue by Third Man.

Ultimate Painting
Live at Third Man Records

Ultimate Painting is the pairing of James Hoare and Jack Cooper, known for their excellent indie bands Veronica Falls and Mazes (respectively). A tour together made them realise they had something going on, leading to the lovely sounds we hear here. This release captures a live performance at Jack White’s Third Man Records.
