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.
The Dead Weather and Third Man Records have also announced a series of exclusive listening parties at select record stores across the country, with attendees also getting the chance to win limited edition DODGE AND BURN prizes.

September 18th marks the second year of Americana invasion of our Blue Room, and we couldn't be more excited to host up-and-coming American Roots acts as well as Americana Music Association members a night of music. Miss Margo Price will do a special in store set at 7pm in the storefront to kick off the evening, to be followed by Barna Howard, William Elliot Whitmore, John Paul Keith, Low Cut Connie and Steelism in the Blue Room.
This AMA event requires a wristband for entry, but space-permitting, we will be selling tickets for $15 at the door the night of the show.
8pm - Barna Howard
9pm - William Elliot Whitmore
10pm - John Paul Keith
11pm - Low Cut Connie
11:59pm - Steelism
Now THAT'S Americana!
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...
In case you missed it, here is The Dead Weather’s performance of “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” (off their upcoming record DODGE AND BURN) from last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert below:
Finally, a kick-ass video game based on poetry rather than FIFA or Seal Team 6. Now all you gamers out there can experience what pixilated, dark haired poet Sampson Starkweather experiences: PAIN. So, no more can society argue that video game culture has usurped activities such as reading. Play the game. Taste the PAIN. Then, inflict more PAIN on your-self-abusing-selves, sitting in your dark rooms, cathode blue computer colored faces, still arguing Atari vs Intellivision, or the processing power of this-or-that latest console, and Pre-order PAIN: The Board Game by Sampson Starkweather, the fourth title from Third Man Books.

"[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
