  • Nashville Jumps & Third Man Records Present

    This Wednesday March 6th we'll be doing something we rarely ever do here at TMR HQ... Well, ok it's a first.

    We're co-presenting a show at our current favorite venue in town, The Stone Fox.  It's Nashville Jumps night at the Fox (formally and amazing show on WRVU, R.I.P) , and they'll be spinning the finest in old fashioned good time Rhythm and Blues. And what's more we'll have The Dough Rollers from Los Angeles playing their gritty Southern style Rock N Roll Soul for their first ever Nashville show live on stage. It's going to be a real hum dinger of a party and it's all FREE!

    Check out the classy poster below for all the information, and we'll see you all tomorrow night on the dancefloor. Things get started at 8pm!

  • BRITTANY HOWARD & RUBY AMANFU Blue Series

    Third Man Records is as excited as we are proud to announce a once in a lifetime pairing of two of modern music's leading ladies, as Brittany Howard and Ruby Amanfu join forces for the "I Wonder" b/w  "When My Man Comes Home" Single (TMR 201).

    The new single features the Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes frontwoman teaming up with the Third Man family member who first caught our ears on Jack White's "Love Interruption" for two reinterpretations of boldly contrasting source material: Side A features their take on "I Wonder," originally performed by Rodriguez, subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Searching For Sugar Man, while side B finds Howard also picking up her acoustic guitar as the two sing their version of "When My Man Comes Home," originally recorded by Memphis Minnie, the immortal composer of "When The Levee Breaks" among others.

    The single also features The Buzzards' Dominic Davis on electric and upright bass, Daru Jones on drums, Cory Younts on piano, Ikey Owens on keys and Hammond B3 and Fats Kaplin on electric guitar, lap steel and mandolin. Pre-order the 7" single here, available March 12th. Hear the A Side "I Wonder" Below:
