Olivia Jean has been pounding the pavement on multiple tours over the past few months and making serious waves with debut release Bathtub Love Killings. WBEZ's Jim DeRogatis called her, "incredibly versatile and virtuosic musician able to play any instrument she picks up, further strengthened by an encyclopedic knowledge of music," while saying he "wasn’t quite prepared for the joys of Bathtub Love Killings."
Stephen Thomas Erlewine pointed out Olivia's "coquettish wink... that's beguiling" in his All Music Review, and Uncut's Peter Watts appreciated her "deadpan delivery that neatly undercut her catchy, garage-blues riffs."
Of course, we realize that you all already know Olivia Jean is one talented lady, but sometimes we just want to brag a little...
Also, to get a closer look at the Scion AV Pop-Up dedicated to Bathtub Love Killings last month in Los Angeles, check out this video below:
Closing out an exceptional year at Third Man Records is a release that's pretty near and dear to us. It should come as no surprise to the TMR faithful that Lillie Mae Rische is a complete bad-ass and an all-around powerhouse of melody. She first joined the TMR family a little over two years ago and ever since--whether onstage w/ Jack White and his band or in the studio--she's been, how you say, delivering us from evil with fiddle playing so stupefying as to propel listeners into the jaws of heavenly awe. Feel me on this, y'all?
Here we have Lillie Mae Rische center stage. Her contribution to our Blue Series showcases two original songs, charming and plaintive, with the B-side hitting us with a story of hearts on the road, having to reconcile distance and desire. Meanwhile, the A-side is a gentle yet stern anthem about the sweet and sour circumstances of being alone. All in a voice that's sweeter than peach brandy.
Joining her are some longtime Third Man contributors Carl Broemel, Dominic Davis, Jack Lawrence, and local drum god, Whip Triplet.
Tune in to VH1 tomorrow night, November 27th, at 9pm ET/PT to watch “A Very Bonnaroo Thanksgiving” featuring clips of Jack’s epic 2014 headline set and The White Stripes' 2007 performance.
BLACK FRIDAY PLANS:
Some people get up early on Black Friday to stand in line for televisions and treadmills and toasters. We like that our fans are the type of people who stand in line for one thing, and one thing only: MUSIC. This Black Friday we will be selling limited edition vinyl of The Dough Rollers GONE BABY GONE EP as well as Bill Burr's LIVE AT ANDREW'S HOUSE LP from our Nashville storefront beginning at 9am. We will also have black vinyl of the newest trio of Sun Records Reissues: Roy Orbison's "Ooby Dooby b/w Go! Go! Go!," "Sweet and Easy to Love b/w Devil Doll," and "Chicken-Hearted b/w I Like Love" (also available online).
At our physical location, we will also be selling the absolute... final... remaining... general admission tickets to Jack White's Bridgestone arena show in January. A free "Would You Fight For My Love" 7" will come with every ticket purchased. This is your last chance to be a part of the up-close-and-personal crew at this show.
