Third Man Records: Your Turntable is not dead!
Third Man Records
  • Ultimate Painting Live at Third Man Records

    Posted by Third Man on 28 August 2015

    Calling all ye apostles of psychedelia, ye ramblin' jammers, ye breezy groovers, ye thinking adults and all you lightheaded punks des fleurs... We are thrilled to announce that ULTIMATE PAINTING will be performing in the Blue Room on September 24th, 2015!

    ULTIMATE PAINTING is an already distinguished UK duo comprised of Jack Cooper and James Hoare. As the story goes, these two spent time touring together with Cooper’s band, Mazes, supporting Hoare’s band, Veronica Falls. A fateful friendship developed and, to make it quick, demos were recorded and swapped, which all eventually led to their debut seeing release on Trouble In Mind, one of our top favorite Chicago labels. The project has been so thoroughly adored for its uncomplicated, beautifully calm approach to VU-style riff-making and loose vibes that the follow up, Green Lanes, was released a mere ten months later AKA last month! Needless to say we’re so so glad they’re bringing their way through the great land of Nashville, TN.

    But that’s not all, no, not a bit. Joining U.P. for the night are label mates SALAD BOYS who will be making their debut in the USA on this trip, all the way from Christchurch, New Zealand, if you can believe it. They’re a real jangle-pop force of nature for those of you enticed by and entrenched in ANY fraction of the Flying Nun catalog. Take your pick.

    Last but never least, local psych-pop stalwarts (and longtime Trouble in Mind-ers) The Paperhead will open the show and give the TMR staff a long overdue opportunity to conjure the ghost of Kevin Ayers long enough to get him in the record booth.

    WAIT though! If you purchase tickets before September 15th, three lucky attendees will be randomly selected to win a SPECIAL PRIZE provided by the fine folks up north: rare and uncirculated test pressings of each band’s most recently release on TiM.

    This one ain't to be missed, kids. Come get your kicks!!! Tickets are on sale NOW.

  • Austin, TX's VIDEO announces new LP, shares first single via SPIN

    Posted by Third Man on 25 August 2015

    There's no band that can lay claim to being the true best in the business, except VIDEO.

    Crawling from the musical wasteland that is Texas, their intentions are simple: they want to own the world. While the band features members of Bad Sports, Wiccans, Radioactivity, and the Wax Museums (just to name a few), VIDEO stands on its own as one of the most powerful and visceral bands active today. Combining equal parts snotty punk, hard rock, and melodic dissonance, VIDEO are pioneers of their own subgenre, Hate Wave. Going well beyond the confines of paint by numbers punk, and generic, flaccid garage rock, VIDEO forges a new cult like movement. So pay attention, consumers, and don't miss out on the best thing going today.

    Long Live The New Faith, Long Live VIDEO.

    The full length LP The Entertainers will be released on Third Man Records on October 30th of this year, along with new records from Timmy's Organism and Wolf Eyes. The 7" single "New Immortals" b/w "Nothing Lasts Forever" is available for PRE-ORDER NOW
