As the Shaggs so wonderfully sang "It's Halloween! It's Halloween!" We are doing Halloween up right this year (Devil's Night is nigh, my friends), and as part of our wicked celebrations, we are beguiled and delighted to bring you two new original recordings from Elvira™ Mistress of the Dark. With two songs written by the otherworldly Fred Schneider (of the B-52s!), both "2 Big Pumpkins" and "13 Nights of Halloween" brim with fun double-entendres, campy cackling, devilishly danceable beats and so much more. If that weren't enough, the cover art for the single is printed with heat-reactive ink. So while Elvira may appear to be only a dark silhouette, once things heat up you'll definitely get a delightful eyeful. And did we mention pugnacious purple vinyl? I think we just did.
7"s will begin shipping this week, set to arrive to folks just in time for their wonderfully wicked Halloween parties. Order your copy here. Or, if you're not enticed by this larger-than-life packaging and would prefer to own the single digitally, it is available on MP3 at iTunes.

Thanks for making the big announcement, Gnash! Jack White is excited to announce his first two tour dates of 2015, a pair of special arena shows at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on January 28th and New York City’s Madison Square Garden on January 30th. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available to Vault members on Tuesday, October 7th at 10am local time. Tickets go on sale to the public at 12pm local time on Friday, October 10th.
On June 14th of this year, Jack White unleashed what was arguably one of the best performances in the 13 year history of the Bonnaroo festival.
In an expansive field in Manchester, TN, filled with approximately 70,000 fans, White let loose a tour-de-force, 26-song, two-hour and forty-five minute career-spanning set. From White Stripes songs like “Hotel Yorba” and “Icky Thump” to Raconteurs numbers such as “Top Yourself” and “Steady, As She Goes” through “Blue Blood Blues” by the Dead Weather…not to mention a wide selection of his solo material and covers of two surf rock classics “Pipeline” by the Chantays and “Misirlou” by Dick Dale. And Led Zeppelin’s “The Lemon Song”? He did that too.
In order to celebrate a show of such historical heft, Third Man Records has decided to dedicate the entirety of its 22nd Vault package to this performance.
Three vinyl LPs (white, blue and black), housed in a soft-touch, telescoping box, topped off with a lenticular television on the cover…this is by far the most ambitious Vault package yet. The audio has been mixed by Third Man’s in house engineer, three time Grammy Award-winner Vance Powell and stands as a marked improvement over the on-the-fly board mix heard in webcasts, YouTube uploads and shady downloads.
In addition, there will be a DVD of the FULL performance, re-edited from the original raw footage by Brad Holland (filmmaker extraordinaire), for a truly memorable visual document of the evening.
We could’ve stopped there…but anything worth doing is worth overdoing, right?
Also included in the package will be four high-quality 8x10 photographs from the evening shot by David Swanson. Suitable for framing, timeless, these will increase the value of your home tenfold.
(said to the guys in production) “Is that all? NO?!?!? Are you kidding me? What else could we offer?”
Apparently we’ve lost our minds and gone as for to include a customized Jack White patch, a replica backstage pass sticker AND a poster in this beast of a package.
You want a custom-designed USB with super-secret extra added bonus materials too? Have at it.
If this package doesn’t make you happy…nothing will.
Subscriptions are open now, get yours in before the October 31st deadline.
It was only a lucky few iNDie Festival attendees who witnessed Alloy Orchestra's performance of their soundtrack to the 1929 silent film "The Man with the Movie Camera" in our Blue Room last Fall, so we are pleased to bring the recording to you in the form of a double LP, available now online and in our Nashville storefront. Alloy Orchestra is a 3-man musical ensemble — Roger C. Miller, Ken Winokur, & Terry Donahue — who use "racks of junk," synthesizers, and all sorts of other unusual instruments, found objects, and unlikely noisemakers to aurally accompany silent films. Roger Ebert has called them "the best in the world at accompanying silent films," and we can't disagree. "The Man with the Movie Camera," directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova, is a documentary with no specific cast or narrative. In the film, a man carries out his day in the city as a member of the proud proletariat, capturing invention and the relationship between man and machine in Lenin's Soviet Union.
Purchase your copy here. If you purchased a black & blue copy at the performance, you can pick it up at our Nashville storefront during normal business hours.
