Record of the Week: Ruby Amanfu & Brittany Howard
Third Man family member Ruby Amanfu released two gorgeous new singles last month ("Bluff" / "Love Out Loud") and is making a habit out of winning over every crowd she sings in front of, whether backing up Jack White in his all-female band The Peacocks, or torching the bayou all by herself at Voodoo Fest and beyond. On this Blue Series 7", Ruby is joined by Alabama Shakes front woman Brittany Howard for reinterpretations of Sixto "Sugar Man" Rodriguez's "I Wonder" and Memphis Minnie's "When My Man Comes Home." Ruby is featured on more Third Man releases than you likely realize, and we are so proud to call her (as well as Dominic Davis, Daru Jones, Cory Younts, Ikey Owens and Fats Kaplin, all also heard tearing it up on this record) members of the family. If you don't have this Blue Series in your collection yet, you're missing out on one of our favorites. Purchase for a NICE PRICE here.
