    Posted by Third Man on 11 November 2015

    The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry, homeless and hurting, and we are so honored to have such great neighbors. We've done turkey drives the past two seasons to help the Mission collect the 1,000 turkeys and foodstuffs required to throw their annual banquet, and we'd like to solidify the tradition of giving back with your help. 

    Here's the deal: Anytime in the next two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, drop off your donation (from the options below) to the Nashville Rescue Mission (You can find their donation center at 616 7th Avenue South, across the street from TMR headquarters, and entry by the American flag). They are open Monday-Saturday 7am-7pm. Bring your donation receipt to the Third Man storefront and immediately receive 10% off your purchase PLUS be entered to win our big Thanksgiving Prize Pack (detailed below).

     
    One Prize Pack entry will be given for each donation of either:
     
    a) One turkey (fresh or frozen), of sizable weight
     
    — or —
     
    b) Three of the following items:
     
    • Cranberry Sauce
    • Green Beans, Corn, Mixed Vegetables (#10 cans please)
    • Corn Bread Mix
    • Cheddar Cheese
    • Dinner Rolls
    • Sausage
    • Coffee
    • Dessert Pie
    • Stuffing
    • Sugar
    • Coffee Creamer 

    In planning your donation, please be mindful of what you'd like on YOUR Thanksgiving table, and shop accordingly.  

    The Thanksgiving Prize Pack will be bursting at the seams with Third Man Records goodness: chock full exclusive records like test pressings and colored vinyl, random bits of dust and cake crumbs, leftover motor oil and perhaps even some holiday cheer. While we'd love to detail its contents, we're afraid they must be kept a secret. All we can promise is that it won't disappoint. The winner will be chosen at random on Monday. November 30th.

    For those of you who would like to contribute but are out of town, feel free to give to the Mission directly online using our dedicated link. Your donation of $15 or more will automatically enter you into the Thanksgiving Prize Pack drawing.

    We THANK YOU in advance for helping us help others. We've said it before, and we'll say it again, we have it so good having you all around.

  • YAK - "Alas Salvation" Official Video

    Posted by Third Man on 10 November 2015

    DIY Magazine describes them as "a berserk bunch who balance noise with a don't-give-a-shit mentality." NME says they're "notably non-conformist." The Quietus thinks they will "restore your faith in rock & roll." We here at Third Man have decided they are, without-a-doubt "favorite band material."

    They are Yak, and they are set to release their most thrilling material ever THIS FRIDAY in the form of a second EP titled ‘No.’ Last month we unveiled the official video for the release’s title track. Today, we're pleased to share with you their second EP-related video for the track "Alas Salvation." Directed again by ex-Jesus And Mary Chain member Douglas Hart (who, as we mentioned last time, has also made videos for Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and The Horrors).

    If you haven't worked it out yet, now is the time. Pre-order the 'No' EP on 7" vinyl HERE. That way, these 3 perfectly punky tracks will be spinning on your turntable by Friday's release day.

  • Margo Price Single + Single Release Party

    Posted by Third Man on 9 November 2015

    Third Man announced back in September that next March we will be releasing the next record Midwest Farmer's Daughter from Nashville country crooner Margo Price...

    "...we could wax poetic for days about how much we love this record (and how we think Margo is here to save us all from the Starbucking of America with her stupefying voice that could tumble buildings and how her songs have one foot firmly planted in Nashville's past and their whole heart somehow gracefully existing in 2015)..."

    Now we're pleased to let you know that you won't have to wait until March to put a little Pricetag on your turntable. The first single off the record "Hurtin' on the Bottle" will be released December 4th, and we'll have a good, ol' fashioned party to celebrate the launch at the brand new Basement East in Nashville the evening prior, December 3rd. Tickets are available now. 

    The B-Side to this tasty, country treat is "Desperate and Depressed," which you heard Margo perform a piece of when we announced her signing. Let us refresh your memory...

  • DEVIL'S NIGHT AUDIO SOCIAL DISSENTION

    Posted by Third Man on 30 October 2015

    Devil’s Night is upon us and the time is finally right. Brace yourself for the venomous reality that rock n roll, punk, and the jazzhead trip metal avant-garde aren't museum pieces to be overanalyzed and thrown under glass like sad fossils. This is vital music for violent times. So, if you haven’t already pre-ordered Wolf Eyes’ I Am A Problem: Mind in Pieces, Timmy’s Organism’s Heartless Heathen, or VIDEO’s The Entertainers, no worries whatsoever because we're gonna find it in our big dumb hearts to forgive you. In fact, we'll do you one better. For a limited time, we’ve put together THREE tasty bundles for you to choose from. First, the Audio Social Dissent Bundle, which includes all three brand new LPs for a very reasonable $48. But if singles are more your speed, you can get the straight shootin' Acute Dissent Bundle, featuring “Enemy Ladder” from Wolf Eyes, “Get Up, Get Out” from Timmy’s Organism, and “New Immortals” from VIDEO, all for a modest fee of $15. BUT if you’re in it to win it, feeling slimy, and you’re the real deal--the kind of fan every Third Man Records devotee aspires to be--you can get the TOTAL DISSENT BUNDLE for only $60. This includes all 3 LPs + all 3 7”s, the latter containing exclusive non-album b-sides that sound better on vinyl. "Wow," you might be thinking. I don't really know because it's not my job to read your mind. It's my job to help put out dope records.

    And, no true dissenter wants to keep that a secret, we've got patches and pins and t-shirts from ALL THREE BANDS available today online and in our Nashville retail store.

    The time is nigh to get it together, grab some records and some fresh garments, and get mad. #tmapproved
