The cat is out of the bag! One of our favorite up-and-coming acts from NYC, THE DOUGH ROLLERS, who you know well from their Blue Series "Little Lily," will be putting an EP out via Third Man this Spring! Rolling Stone premiered the first single "Gone Baby Gone" today, saying, "[It's] like a distant relative to the song we were rehearsing before we went into the studio. It really transformed into something with a totally different character after we sat with it for a while and kept stripping it down and re-layering it. It became almost a whole new song." Check out the song over at RollingStone.com, and stay tuned over the coming months for updates...

It has been a while since we’ve reminded you all of the glory of Dexter Romweber and Chris “Crow” Smith. Flat Duo Jets reigns as one of the most prolific, and one of our most favorite, American psychobilly acts to come out of the 80’s/90’s, and Go Go Harlem Baby, produced by the legendary Jim Dickinson, is a reissue we worked hard to bring back to life for your enjoyment. Go Go Harlem Baby has been sold out (due to popular demand) for more than a few weeks as of late, but trusty United Record Pressing just dropped off a new batch, hot of the presses, and we are eager to keep spreading this masterpiece out into the world. If you’re a fan of rockabilly or garage rock or punk or blues or The White Stripes or Jack White or, hell, if you’re just a fan of America (Go USA!), this one’s for you. Get it here for a special 'Record of the Week' NICE PRICE.
The Light & Sound Machine, along with The Belcourt Theatre and Third Man Records with the cooperation of Canyon Cinema are very proud to present... seven of Bruce Baillie’s rarely screened masterpieces from his most fruitful period
Despite having been a cornerstone of the emerging cinematic avant-garde of the 1960's—as well as a co-founder of Canyon Cinema and the San Francisco Cinematheque—Bruce Baillie has escaped recognition from all but the most committed film enthusiasts and scholars. His oft-imitated, rarely paralleled style of sensuous, nature-tethered cinema has inspired generations of filmmakers, most recently 2010 Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Today, Baillie’s work enjoys a resurgence of interest, thanks in part to prestigious retrospectives at the Ann Arbor Film Festival and Los Angeles’ REDCAT cinema.
A metaphysical poet of film’s postwar avant-garde - Artforum
Trust us, you’re a fan of Petra, Rachel and Tanya Haden. Chances are, you’ve listened to their performances with the Foo Fighters, QOTSA, Beck, Green Day, Weezer, or Todd Rundgren and have admired their talent without knowing from where it was coming. The triplets (daughters of bass legend Charlie Haden and born only seconds apart) have come together, after decades of discussing it, and brought to life a collection of beautifully sung renditions of folk and Americana jewels. The sisterly harmonies are the star of this record, which features the guitar of and is produced by Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club) who pushed the girls to finally document their voices on record. The Haden Triplets debut self-titled album is officially released today on LP/CD and MP3.
To learn more about the record and the sisters, check out the following articles in which the triplets discuss their craft and how the record came to be, or listen to them live on WFUV at 2pm EST today.
