  • Today We Celebrate Craig Brown Band’s The Lucky Ones Forget Release!

    Posted by on 31 March 2017

    “…re-juiced '70s outlaw country… hangovers are a requirement for Brown’s brand of lady bemoaning and swagger slinging.” - Playboy

    "Meet Detroit’s New Country Star, Craig Brown” - Pitchfork

    We are excited to announce the official release of Craig Brown Band’s The Lucky Ones Forget. Detroit Native, Craig Brown delivers the combo of bartender-wisdom and a long love for rock n’ roll to your ears with his debut album recorded by Warren Defever (Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono, Iggy and the Stooges). Craig Brown Band’s debut LP is one part unstoppable fun, one part dolor profundo and one part deceptive cleverness.

    Brown has been on a long musical journey, from his roots in idolizing early Alice Cooper to shredding in a slew of punk, garage and indie rock bands and now finally to a beerbar-tested, road-ready country rock album. Craig Brown Band finds a sweet spot conceptually between a silly but heartfelt Paul Westerberg number and the freedom and looseness of Bob Seger’s best. Color us impressed.

    The Lucky Ones Forget is available today for purchase here or at your local record store. The Lucky Ones Forget is also available digitally for streaming and download.

    For those in Detroit, come celebrate Craig's release, at your favorite neighborhood haunt, the UFO Factory. From 12-1pm get a Detroit Coney dog and a can of Hamms for only 5 bucks. At 12:30 Craig Brown will be playing a short stripped-down set that will also be live-streamed on Facebook @ThirdManRecords! Exclusive copies of the LP will be available for purchase.

  • LILLIE MAE PREMIERES NEW TRACK "WASH ME CLEAN"

    Posted by on 28 March 2017

    We're excited for the release of Lillie Mae’s third track, "Wash Me Clean," from her Jack White-produced album FOREVER AND THEN SOME -- listen HERE. The song premiered via Elle, who noted that "Forever and Then Some is filled with songs that showcase Lillie Mae's songwriting talent, blending pop heartbreak with country joy -- kind of like if Robyn spent some quality time with Willie Nelson." FOREVER AND THEN SOME will see a release on April 14 via Third Man Records.

    Pre-orders for FOREVER AND THEN SOME are available HERE, with all digital pre-orders receiving instant downloads of the album's wistful first single "Over The Hill and Through The Woods," "Honky Tonks and Taverns," and the latest track "Wash Me Clean." "Over The Hill and Through The Woods" is also available as a 7" vinyl single -- backed with non-album track "The Last Time" -- HERE. A limited edition 7" will be released for Record Store Day 2017 on April 22. "Over The Hill and Through The Woods" was praised by Rolling Stone Country for "melding unique old-time vocal breaks, a rich sonic chug that evokes some Seventies rock psychedelia and evocative storytelling." Watch the beautifully stark music video directed by Elise Tyler on YouTube.

    Lillie Mae will start a run of shows supporting Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals on April 28 in New Orleans, followed by festival dates this Summer and additional shows to be announced soon. For tickets, more information, and updates, please visit www.lilliemaemusic.com.

  • Over $6K Raised for Pediatric Cancer Research at Third Man Records Spring Hop!

    Posted by on 27 March 2017

    We are so excited to announce that Third Man Records raised over $6K to help benefit pediatric cancer research via the Rally For Rhyan charity!

    Third Man Records' Spring Hop was a cross between promoting our newest and latest spring merchandise while donating proceeds of all activities and 15% of sales to pediatric cancer research in honor of Rhyan Loos, one of the labels very own relatives who's currently battling Stage IV Neuroblastoma. Read more about Rhyan's journey HERE.

    We hosted a fun-filled day at our Nashville location where a few friendly faces graced our presence: Mr. Steve performed two live sets, Ranger Stitch sold his legendary embroidered patches, and Retro Sno  posted up with their frosty treats. We also offered $10 kids' haircuts, face painting, hair braiding, and even had a elephant bounce house! One of the day's biggest hits was our exclusive Third Man Records silent auction where we accepted bids on exclusive TMR packages. In order to offer the best gifts possible, we partnered a few of our favorite companies, such as Grimey's and YETI, and even managed to tuck a few signed White Stripes Easter Eggs in there.

    We appreciate all of you who came out and made our event a success for Rhyan & pediatric cancer research!
