Our Summer schedule is starting to fill up in both Nashville & Detroit, and these four events are just the beginning of many announcements to follow in the coming weeks. Join us on the first Tuesday and third Thursday of the month for our ongoing film series, Peripheral Visions and Light + Sound Machine, respectively, with the Belcourt Theatre. This month's Peripheral Visions (our cult and genre film night) washes us up on the shores of a mysterious Spanish island for Who Can Kill A Child?. Who Can Kill A Child? is an atmosphere rich nightmare of a film that boldly asks the question, 'What if the children had enough and took matters into their own hands and then the adults have enough and take matters into their own hands against the children... WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?"
Not nearly as hokey or quasi-religious bent as Children of the Corn (and in fact Who Can Kill A Child? predates that book by a year), this is a sinister film that can be shocking and disturbing and is genuinely, actually SCARY. When was the last time you were scared in a film? I mean, come on... every horror film these days is soft soaped bump and scare style rated PG-13 snooze fest. Does a movie that goes alternately by the titles "Island Of The Damned", "The Killer's Playground", "The Hex Massacre", or "Death is Child's Play" sound PG13 to you? NO? Of course it isn't, and you wouldn't have it any other way, would you weirdo film fans?! Third Man and The Belcourt Theatre are very excited to bring this rarely-exhibited 1970's psychotronic blood-soaked horror classic to Nashville on 16mm film on June 7th. Join us won't you?
In Detroit on June 5th, straight from its world premiere at the Chicago Underground Film Festival, Third Man Records Cass Corridor presents the second-ever screening of Tyler Hubby's radical new documentary, Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present. This unusual, non-fiction film examines the pioneering life and works of artist, musician, and educator Tony Conrad, one of the great American artists of our time, yet to the world at large he remains criminally underappreciated. Since the early 1960s, his films and compositions have been the stuff of legend for artists and musicians everywhere. His vast, inter-disciplinary repertoire has single-handedly created and influenced major film and compositional movements. Learn more and get tickets here.
On June23 th. Captwolf joins comes to Cass Corridor's Blue Stage on June 23rd. Captwolf’s 2015 mixtape,"Liquor Store Pizza Party At My Crib” sent vibrations throughout the Detroit local music scene and was probably the best mixtape title of last year. Their music is a mixture of boom-bap and psychedelic originality and this next wave, slacker, hip-hop boy genius collective live show should not be missed! Tickets here.
Shabazz Palaces is Ishmael Butler (Digible Planets) and Tendai Maraire, and their Lese Majesty was easily the most spun record on the Third Man office turntable in 2014. Our admiration reached new heights when we had the honor of hosting the Seattle-based duo for a live performance and direct-to-acetate recording in our Nashville Blue Room last year. In Third Man consigliere Ben Swank's own words, "Shabazz Palaces' obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering its own sonic boom."
Ishmael and Tendai announced recently that they will be supporting Radiohead on their upcoming LA dates, and the group released a new video featuring footage from the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA's Johnson Space Center, and the Hubble and Cassini space missions for their track "Dawn In Luxor" just last week. We agree... you'd better go ahead and watch...
We've all waited too long to relive this superlative performance, so it is sincerely our pleasure to announce that this live LP will be available to spin on your turntable (and on ours) next Friday, June 3rd. Pre-order your copy now.
Listen to "Youlogy" below...
We here at Third Man Records try not to spare you from the heaviest of heavies and here we are again with no exceptions. On August 1, 2016, not terribly long after the annual belch of fireworks has ended, the Blue Room will be host to two of the best-loved psych-metal shredders and doomsters around not just in the US of A, but on the whole damned planet. Any idea who? Why, you're correct! BORIS is heading out on a North American tour (all the way from Japan!) and will be performing the critically acclaimed PINK in full, in our midst, and it will be recorded direct-to-tape. There’s got to be no better way to celebrate the 10-year anniversary and the deluxe reissue of one of their finest releases. The reissue will be available on 3xLP box set, 2xCD, and download on July 8 via Sargent House, including a bonus album of previously unreleased songs that were recorded at the same time as PINK, titled Forbidden Songs. Stream a track below! And, then, of course, somewhere down the line, their live rendition of the record will be available on LP from yours truly. So, there's no end to the celebration in sight. Ain't that right.
On hand for direct support is the likeminded, superhuman sludge-drone majesty of EARTH, a band who has an integral spot in American music by bringing a low-frequency uproar and six-string extremism to the forefront of the experimental, punk metal underground. This’ll no doubt be the loudest show we’ve booked here since the Melvins, so, if you SOMEHOW manage to sleep on this (or THROUGH this), please send us a picture of the rock you live under and we’ll forward it to the Bureau of SMDH.
If you’re unable to make the trek to Nashville, load up your fanny pack with some magnetic poetry, John Cage headphones and rave batons, then CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY by hitting up a show in a city nearest you.
Last night in Washington D.C. our Nashville friends at the Americana Music Association announced their award nominees, granting honors to Chris Stapleton, the Alabama Shakes, Leon Bridges, The Milk Carton Kids, and our own Margo Price, among many other talented acts. Margo was nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for "Hand of Time," the opening track on her new album Midwest Farmer's Daughter. It is a privilege to be the label home for Margo and her incredible debut effort. We look forward to the Americana conference this September and offer our sincere congratulations to all nominees. Watch the nomination ceremony in its entirety, including a performance by Margo of her song "Desperate and Depressed" (the non-album B-Side to her "Hurtin (On the Bottle)" 7" single), at NPR's Facebook page.
