  • THE DEAD WEATHER PREMIERE SECOND OF FOUR TECHNIQUE AND INSTRUMENT DISCUSSION VIDEOS

    Posted by Third Man on 16 September 2015

    EPISODE 2:

    "BASS TECHNIQUE AND DISCUSSION WITH DEAD WEATHER BASSIST JACK LAWRENCE"
    DIRECTED BY JACK WHITE
    LIVE NOW ON MOJO 

    PLUS EXCLUSIVE LISTENING PARTIES TO ROCK INDEPENDENT RETAILERS THROUGH ALBUM’S RELEASE

    The Dead Weather have released the second of four technique and instrument-based videos. In this second episode, bass deconstructionist, Jack Lawrence, reveals the secrets of how he achieves his distinct bottom end sound for The Dead Weather. Lawrence demonstrates some of his most head nodding bass lines and leaves no question that without the bass, there would be no Dead Weather. The video, directed by Jack White, concludes with an incendiary live performance of "Mile Markers" from the new album Dodge And Burn. Each band members' technique videos showcases a different song from the band’s career, including tracks from their forthcoming album Dodge and Burn (out September 25th). Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the remaining two videos of the series from The Dead Weather and Third Man Records.

  • WOLF EYES ARE DOOMED

    Posted by Third Man on 15 September 2015

    Feast your ears on the latest piece of infuriated gloom from the Wolf Eyes camp. The second peek at their upcoming full-length, I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces is called “T.O.D.D.” and it’s now streaming over at NPR’s All Songs Considered. It’s a song inspired by the life and work of Tod Dockstader, the mastermind musique concrète composer who passed away while the album was being recorded. Just another taste of majesty to ease the common ache. The first single, "Enemy Ladder" is now available HERE and it includes the equally stunning anti-groove anthem of “Dull Murder 2” as an exclusive, non-album b-side. It’s my personal favorite and it’s TRIP METAL APPROVED.

    According to Viking’s Choice at NPR: ”T.O.D.D.” sounds like a crumbling Velvet Underground bootleg that's been burned to ashes and smeared into Pentagram frontman Bobby Liebling's banshee eyeliner. Now two years after declaring noise over ("Completely, 100 percent"), here Wolf Eyes embraces the metallic side of its self-christened genre/lifestyle "trip metal" with a washed-out, doomy guitar buried under a monotone chant and the most primal kick drum imaginable."

    Well, I’m not sure I could have said it any better myself. This will hold us over until the next wave of unreleased material is posted on to the Wolf Eyes Bandcamp. I wonder what else they have planned… In the meantime, head over to All Songs Considered...

    "[Starkweather’s] poetry is so real, so stunning, so emotionally accurate and strange…I find with each poem I’m laughing out loud. But also putting my hand over my heart, in a futile effort to keep the damn thing still.” —Bianca Stone, author of Someone Else’s Wedding Vows
