  • THIRD MAN RECORDS ON THE TODAY SHOW!

    Posted by on 6 March 2017

    A few weeks back, Al Roker stopped by Third Man Records to learn more about the resurgence of vinyl. Ben Blackwell took Al through the history and nostalgia behind vinyl but also how Third Man Records incorporates modern day recording with that tangible, vinyl sound.

    In order to show Al how live-to-vinyl recording works, we brought in Nashville Natives Ranch Ghost where they performed live in The Blue Room. Listen to the tunes recorded for the Today Show HERE.

  • THE BLIND SHAKE, ARCHIE & THE BUNKERS, AND FRED & TOODY - OUT TODAY!

    Posted by on 3 March 2017

    We are super excited to announce the release of The Blind Shake, Archie & The Bunkers, and Fred & Toody. All recorded live in The Blue Room at Third Man Records. Black vinyl available for purchase online and in-stores today! Check your local record shop or stop by our Nashville & Detroit locations.

    THE BLIND SHAKE
    LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS



    The Blind Shake represents the strengths of the Minneapolis music scene. Theirs is a sort of toxic post-rock with bursts of noise that speak directly to the proximity of Amphetamine Reptile Records. There are undertones of Devo, A-Frames, Thee Oh-Sees and more. The momentum here is impeccable and the cold North is no doubt alive with the sound of music.

    TRACK LISTING:
    SIDE A
1. I Shot All The Birds
    SIDE B
2. Tar Paper

    ARCHIE & THE BUNKERS
    LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS



    Archie and The Bunkers hail from the birthplace of punk and a major rustbelt gem: Cleveland, Ohio.
    Self-described “hi-fi organ punk”, the band is two brothers still in high school - one on drums, the other on Farfisa organ. Although newcomers to some extent, the results are electric and positively explosive, some say reminiscent of The Cramps, The Hentchmen, Billy Childish – every incarnation of top-notch rock you can imagine. It’s rare to take an organ and make it the centerpiece of a rock ‘n’ roll band and have it make so much sense.

    TRACK LISTING:

    SIDE A
1. She’s A Rockin’ Machine 
    SIDE B2
. Mystery Lover

    FRED & TOODY
    LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS



    Fred & Toody are two-thirds of the legendary rock ‘n’ roll band Dead Moon. These two are rock ‘n’ roll lifers: touring relentlessly, writing relentlessly, performing relentlessly and it’s clear that their bond to the music is as powerful and genuine as the bond they share with each other. No fake news, all fact on this front.
    Here we have a document of a stripped-down set with a bittersweet vacancy on the drums—Andrew Loomis having passed in early 2016—lending a strange atmosphere and energy to the performance.

    TRACK LISTING:
    SIDE A
1. It’s Still You 
    SIDE B2. I Was Free

    We are super excited to announce the release of The Blind Shake, Archie & The Bunkers, and Fred & Toody. All recorded live in The Blue Room at Third Man Records.
