    Journey To Addis


    Mastered From The Original Island Tapes And Presented On 180 Gram Vinyl


    Acknowledged as the greatest of all exponents of soulful Reggae, Third World's 'Journey To Addis' raised the bar for Jamaican music in terms of the
    sophistication of its arrangements. The collection chiefly comprises an array of classic Roots Reggae numbers, as typified by 'One Cold Vibe', 'Cool
    Meditation' and the title track, while the internationally successful cover of the O'Jays' 'Now That We Found Love' is Jamaican disco at its very best. This
    long overdue reissue faithfully reproduces the artwork of the original 1978 issue and with the record mastered from the original Island tapes and
    presented on 180 gram vinyl, it has never before sounded so good!

    Mink, Rat Or Rabbit

    Continuing their commitment to celebrating and shining a light on classic and influential music from Detroit, Third Man Records is honored to be able to re-introduce the world to the undeniable importance of the Detroit Cobras.


    As one of the earliest salvos in the great Detroit garage explosion of the turn of the century, the Detroit Cobras Mink, Rat or Rabbit is a landmark album. Comprised solely of cover songs (as has always been the band's MO) the Cobra's spirited takes on Motown classics (''I'll Keep Holding On'' originally by the Marvellettes), garage punk laments (''Bad Girl'' originally known as ''Bad Man'' by the Oblivians) girl group Tear-Jerkers (''Easier to Cry'' originally by the Shangri-Las) and New Orleans soul standards (''Breaka-way'' originally by Irma Thomas) and the end result is nothing short of a staple that any record collection is empty without.

    Third Reich 'n Roll

    The Residents released of their third album, The Third Reich 'n' Roll in 1976. People have speculated whether The Residents were hinting that Rock 'n' Roll has brain-washed the youth of the world. When confronted with this possibility, they replied, Well, it may be true or it may not, but we just wanted to kick out the jams and get it on. The Third Reich 'n' Roll consists of two suites, Swastikas on Parade and Hitler was a Vegetarian. Both are semi-phonetic interpretations of top forty hits from the sixties. Our roots, say The Residents, a bright orange carrot clutched lovingly in their hands. Remastered for vinyl!

    Fragrant World

    Yeasayer's third album, Fragrant World, is a hulking beast of a record. Keyboards clank and wheeze, tiny claps stumble against busted drum machines, and there's very little obvious guitar. It's an album that grapples with the schizophrenia of the modern world by gathering piles of electronics and molding them into something huge and often gorgeous.

    Live At Third Man Records

    Performance Recorded Direct-To-Acetate On March 26, 2016, At Third Man Nashville's Blue Room Venue


    It's no stretch to say that Carla Azar is one of America's greatest living drummers. Intuitive, skilled, and perched quite comfortably on the extremely thin line between high energy and total entropy. All too often the title is heaped upon some goofball doing blast beats, rambling about breakdowns and power violence, all can easily be mistaken for the sounds of a scratched CD. Lucky for us and lucky for every pair of ears the whole world over, Third Man doesn't buy into that nonsense. And CDs? Scratched or brand spankin' new, they're not our preferred medium.


    Hailing from Los Angeles, Autolux is comprised of singer/bassist Eugene Goreshter, drummer Azar, and guitarist/keyboardist Greg Edwards. The band formed in 2000 and has released two EPs and three LPs, including Pussy's Dead in 2016, shortly before this epic live show was recorded in the Third Man Blue Room. Their sound is peculiar and unmistakable, a collision of post-punk, noise, pop and electronica (Organica? Maybe!). Think cyborg whistling glitch-hop mash-ups. You get it? Haha! Nice!


    Live records speak for themselves. This record speaks for itself. If you need us to say anything further, we're gonna need you to set this sheet down, free up both hands, use one to call your mom, keep her on the line, and use the other to hold her hand while she walks you toward the record bin housing something ''on your level,'' because apparently live music ain't your thing. But if you're still reading, it's because you clearly get it. Now go grip this record and see what the fuss is all about.

    Live At Third Man Records

    There are certain bands in this supersaturated, hyper-fragmented, temperamental internet era that rise above ephemeral popularity not because they perpetually reinvent themselves or stay ahead of trends or make headlines with crazy antics or write a mega hit or have a super dreamy frontperson... there are certain bands that rise above because of one characteristic that trumps all others: consistency.


    Woods is one of those bands, and their wheelhouse is a decidedly mellow blend of folk, psych, soul, and funk that's wise beyond its years in timbre and lyric. It's a comforting kind of music Woods makes. It doesn't take you anywhere you don't want to go, even if they world they depict is less and less hospitable with every passing day. It's a soundscape reflective of the world it was created in, and its lack of call-it-action and angst makes it endlessly listenable for those of us with regrettably overactive minds.


    With over ten years and nine studio records under their belt, this Brooklyn band also runs their own label and 2-day festival at Big Sur, and has carved out a loyal legion of appreciators who extol their steadfast artistry and work ethic. We got to see the Nashville Chapter of this legion, as well as a whole slew of new members, at their live taping in our Nashville Blue room, Monday May 2nd. All captured on their Live at Third Man Records LP.

    Live At Third Man Records 10-26-2012

    The dog Hisself joined us at Third Man for a rare Stateside live appearance on October 26th, 2012. Nobody, but nobody, rocks a Diddley Bow like Seasick Steve, and we captured the every nuance in this direct-to-acetate recording. No edits. No overdubs. Just Seasick Steve in all his glory that fateful night in October.


    Three very special live records - The Shins, The Kills, and Seasick Steve - all recorded in the Third Man Blue Room last October, and the first three releases recorded live using their one-of-a-kind direct-to-acetate recording process. Without overdubs or editing, these three records were mixed in real time on a Rupert Neve 5008 console by Grammy Award winning engineer Vance Powell, and instantly cut to vinyl by master cutter George Ingram using a 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati's legendary King Records (the story goes that James Brown's It's A Man's World was cut on this lathe among many more great sides...)

    This record captures a show we had been wanting to see at Third Man since day Numero Uno. Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are two of the most talented and creative people we know and we couldn't be more pleased that they rocked our stage and committed it to wax so we can finally have a release on the label by the one and only KILLS. These 8 songs were recorded direct-to-acetate on October 10, 2012.

    What can we say about The Shins that hasn't already been said in miles of press? They're one of the best bands out there today and we are still honored thinking back to the night James Mercer and his band here to play live and record a live LP for us. This show holds a particularly special place in our hearts, as it was the inaugural groove-carving voyage of our 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati's legendary King Records. The 8 tracks on this live recording mark our first ever cut live direct-to-acetate, and we couldn't be more pleased with the way they turned out.

    Hello Cruel World

    On Hello Cruel World, Sole aka Tim Holland returns with the Skyrider Band for his first full length since the split with Anticon, and his third album with the Skyrider Band. While much was made of Sole leaving the Anticon empire he helped create, there's a refreshing, new found confidence and focus not seen since his now-classic albums Selling Live Water and Bottle of Humans.


    For Hello Cruel World, Sole has assembled an army of the most exciting voices in indie culture to be apart of the new record, recruiting everyone from LILBTHEBASEDGOD, Xiu Xiu, Pictureplane, Sage Francis, Ceschi, and more, to create a pretty stunning tapestry that is a new high water mark in Sole's creative output.

    Man With The Movie Camera: Live At Third Man Records

    Direct-To-Acetate


    The Alloy Orchestra double Live LP was recorded Direct-To-Acetate October, 12th in the Third Man Blue Room as the soundtrack to The Man With The Movie Camera Screening, cohosted by the Belcourt Theatre as part of the 2013 iNDie Festival.


    It was only a lucky few iNDie Festival attendees who witnessed Alloy Orchestra's performance of their soundtrack to the 1929 silent film ''The Man with the Movie Camera'' in our Blue Room last Fall, so we are pleased to bring the recording to you in the form of a double LP. Alloy Orchestra is a 3-man musical ensemble - Roger C. Miller, Ken Winokur, & Terry Donahue - who use ''racks of junk,'' synthesizers, and all sorts of other unusual instruments, found objects, and unlikely noisemakers to aurally accompany silent films. Roger Ebert has called them ''the best in the world at accompanying silent films,'' and we can't disagree. ''The Man with the Movie Camera,'' directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova, is a documentary with no specific cast or narrative. In the film, a man carries out his day in the city as a member of the proud proletariat, capturing invention and the relationship between man and machine in Lenin's Soviet Union.

    Davila 666 - Live At Third Man 3-6-11

    Live recording of Puerto Rican rock and rollers Davila 666's performance at Third Man Records in Nashville, TN on 3/06/11. Produced by Jack White and recorded live direct to analog tape. Black vinyl in plain black sleeve.


    The Third Man Live records are a continuous series of full-length albums recorded in their Blue Room which is arguably the only current venue in the world where a band can record a live set direct-to-tape in front of a paying audience. These shows are recorded onto one-inch 8-track tape (usually by Grammy Award-winning engineer Vance Powell) in front of lucky-to-get-a-ticket crowds. The 8-track master is mixed to 2-track tape at Third Man Studio and that tape is then used to cut the vinyl master, thus ensuring the recording remains in the analog domain the entire time and is never transferred to a digital signal. With limited-edition, split-color, black-and-blue vinyl versions of the LP only available to attendees of the show (and on rare occasions, to Vault members for extra-special releases), the black vinyl versions of the show are of unlimited pressings. At this time the Third Man Live series is only available on vinyl and not any other format.


    Describing themselves as like Menudo on drugs, San Juan, Puerto Rico's Davila 666 combine Stooges-like garage rock fire with the occasional sugary pop melodies. The seven, not six surprisingly, Davilas include singer/tambourine player Sir Charles, multi-instrumentalist AJ, guitarists/vocalists Miss Davila and Johnny Otis, drummer/guitarist/vocalist San Pablo, percussionist/vocalist Panda and guitarist/drummer/vocalist Gigi. Their theatrical live show which includes themes, props, costumes, and dancers, won them fans in the States when they toured with the Black Lips and the King Khan & BBQ Show.


    Davila 666's self-titled U.S. debut was released in the summer of 2008 via In the Red Records. After a somewhat quiet year in 2009, the band came back strong in 2010, releasing an EP on Robs House Records and singles on Norton (covering the Rolling Stones' She's a Rainbow) and Vice (a split with the Dirtbombs). In 2011 the band's second album, Tan Bajo, hit the shelves.

    When The World Comes Down

    Limited Repress Gatefold LP On Clear Vinyl With White And Blue Starburst


    The All-American Rejects began writing material for their third studio album in late December 2006 after wrapping up their Tournado tour, and continued through into the new year. But due to further touring and promotion for their second album Move Along, the band did not enter the studio until nearly a year later. This was also the first time lyricists Nick Wheeler and Tyson Ritter tried new methods of writing by escaping to various regional areas in North America to conceive new lyrics so that the songs could sound honest.


    The first songs to be written that made it onto the album were I Wanna, Back to Me, and Breakin'. While I Wanna was written over a six-month period, with Ritter making constant refinements, the following songs Gives You Hell and Another Heart Calls were all written during a road trip to Vancouver, Canada, with Fallin' Apart and Mona Lisa (When the World Comes Down) getting scored in Rabun County, Georgia, the latter of which was recorded live in one take. The album was later named When the World Comes Down as Ritter saw the title track as a perfect, simple work of art.


    The All-American Rejects began recording for When the World Comes Down at Skywalker Ranch in San Rafael, California[2] and later at Barefoot Studios with producer Eric Valentine. The 16-piece orchestra featured on a dozen of the tracks was recorded at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.


    In an interview with She Knows Entertainment, Ritter commented I think When the World Comes Down has been a journey. I was twenty-three when I started writing this record. I'm twenty-four now... people say when you graduate college you figure out who you are. If I had graduated college, this would be that moment - now. I think I was most questioning life when I was getting off the road with Move Along and this record was therapy for me. It's everything I needed it to be for me.

    The World Is Just A Shape To Fill The Night

    Debut Solo Album from Dutchess & the Duke Songwriter, Jesse Lortz


    Most of these songs were recorded with friends during Feb. 2011 by Greg Ashley (Gris Gris), in a secluded cabin in Sequim, WA. The cabin sessions marked the third time most of the songs had been recorded. Two of the songs on this album are from a previous recording session done at the Pool in Portland by Alex Yusimov. 'The Day We Met' is from a demo recording session I did at my grandfathers cabin on Lake Inez in Montana. A woman some of these songs are about flew out to visit me there. It was the last of the good times we had together.


    Milana, Julia, Nicolas, Keegan, Greg, Suzie, Lisa, and Andrew came to the cabin to contribute to the album and take photographs and video. I wanted friends to join me because making records had always been a lonely process for me and I was ready to change that dynamic. Because this project is not a band, the focus has shifted so that I can play shows alone or with other people. I started writing the songs for this record when I was still married, and the most recent song was written on my 32nd birthday. This project also incorporates drawing, jewelry making, non-musical creative writing and a host of disciplines that I never got the chance to explore in previous bands. I am genuinely excited to be making music for probably the first time in my life. - Jesse Lortz

    Cow / Chill Out, World! (Awaiting Repress)

    Being pioneers with a new album created in no more than 6 months, THE ORB are bound to be exposed to fan expectations running high, while quizzical questions about little fluffy clouds and the good old times take over. It's especially jarring as the duo of accomplished soundsmiths Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann has become known for its genre-bending curiosity and surprising sonic detours, exploring experimental soundscapes as well as club-friendly beats. The funny thing is, though, that whatever the context, you know a track from THE ORB when you hear it. Case in point: COW / CHILL OUT, WORLD!, their latest full-length offering - a masterful ambient album that branches out in many directions, but unmistakably sounds like THE ORB in either ear (and probably to your third ear, too).


    The idea was simply to make an ambient album, Dr Paterson explains, we didn't look back and study earlier recordings, but wanted a more spontaneous approach, a focus on THE ORB today, our vibe in 2016. In contrast to their much-acclaimed previous full-length MOONBUILDING 2703 - which took years to prepare and finetune -, the new album was produced over the course of only five sessions in six months, directly following the like-minded ALPINE EP: it got so spontaneous that a track like 9 ELMS OVER RIVER ENO (CHANNEL 9) consisted only of material collected at North Carolina's Moogfest in May - second-hand records from local stores, field recordings, live samples from gigs that we liked, and of course an excursion to the Eno River, which actually exists. This geographic intimacy and the spontaneity are among the top reasons why we love this album so much.


    Herr Fehlmann sees the duo's relentless gigging schedule as a formative influence on the new album: the countless performances we've played in the last years - probably up to 300 - have brought us closer as a musical unit. The spice of our concerts is improvisation - a fertile process that we've brought to the studio, where we operate with very simple rules of engagement (in this case ambient) and go wherever the flow takes us. It's an approach that one might expect from traditional acoustic instrumentation, not necessarily an electronic set-up, but for THE ORB it works wonders: we're quite happy and also a little bit proud that we've reached this level of unscripted levity with purely electronic means. We're finessing ourselves, sort of, always looking for the next sonic surprise that leaves us rubbing our eyes about how the heck we got there.


    Once more, THE ORB's trademark playfulness is on full display on COW / CHILL OUT, WORLD!, and it doesn't limit itself to the multi-layered sampling and psychedelic sound composites that the duo has become known for - you'll find it in the album title as well. The simple invitation (or order?) to chill out (relax? Calm the eff down?) is converted into an acronym - and the cow that you might expect to find on a Pink Floyd cover or with iconic UK chill-out/dance pranksters The KLF. It's not so much an obscure trope coming full circle as a perfect example for THE ORB's multitimbral approach to sound and meaning - a compelling, immersive journey to diverse places and impressions. Each track title is a conceptual work in its own right, playing with multiple references, some of which remain highly personal and mysterious. But the greatest feat of THE ORB's latest outing might just be how all this semantic doodling never gets in the way of the actual listening, at all times directly relating the artists' sonic vitality and cheerful nosiness. Chill out world! and treat yourself to an outstanding new ambient experience from THE ORB.

    Hearts & Arrows

    Danny & The Champions Of The World are releasing their third album but first on vinyl, Hearts & Arrows on 14th February 2012. Singer/songwriter Danny Wilson was formally in critically acclaimed alt.country legends Grand Drive. The follow-up to 2009's acclaimed Streets Of Our Time, the album was produced by Tony Poole and mixed by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Lucero). The album features an entirely new Champs line-up which includes Rockingbirds bassist Chris Carter.


    Whereas the Champs were originally a loose and chaotic collective of like-minded souls so loose and so chaotic that, at any given gig or session, you couldnt accurately predict who exactly would be performing alongside Wilson this new incarnation of the group is a proper rocknroll band, wholly and entirely committed to being the Champs.

    Static Prevails

    With their third album Clarity being one of the most overlooked masterpieces of 1999, Static Prevails is Jimmy Eat World paying their dues in 1996. It could be the slight over-production (a curse that has always haunted the band), being on a major label for the first time, or them trying to get a feel for pulling fancy studio tricks (i.e., numerous backing vocals, cellos, and Moog additions). Maybe it's all three, but what Static Prevails essentially lacks is the songwriting maturity that Jimmy Eat World could have perfected; but it's almost as if the studio heads at Capitol wouldn't let them so that there would be more room for radio-friendly pop songs. In the end, nobody won. However, tracks such as Anderson Mesa, Call It in the Air, and Seventeen don't cross that line of boring alternative rock but remain in that aggressive pop status. Nothing close to classic, but definitely a sign of better things to come.

    Always Foreign (Pre-Order)

    The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid To Die have announced the forthcoming release of their third full-length, Always Foreign. Due out on Epitaph, Always Foreign follows the Connecticut-bred collective's acclaimed 2015 album Harmlessness.


    Produced by TWIABP guitarist Christopher Teti, Always Foreign confronts everything from the opioid epidemic to xenophobia to emotional abuse in relationships. Throughout the album, TWIABP match their sprawling arrangements and layered lyricism with a raw emotionality.


    "When we started writing we were fresh off Trump being elected, so there's an anger to the album that's different from what we've done in the past," says TWIABP vocalist David F Bello. "There's a lot more resistance thinking throughout the songs-not in a way that's strictly anti-Trump, but also addressing things like white supremacy and controlling elements of the state."


    Along with Bello, Cyr, and Teti, the TWIABP lineup includes Tyler Bussey (guitar, banjo, synth, vocals), Dylan Balliett (guitar, vocals), Katie Dvorak (synth, vocals), and Steven K Buttery (percussion, vocals). Formed in Connecticut in 2009, TWIABP made their full-length debut with Whenever, If Ever (a 2013 release hailed as "revolutionary" by Pitchfork) and later delivered Harmlessness (praised as "bold and complex and dazzling" by Noisey and "grandiose and dramatic" by NPR).

    I Love My Dog / Matthew And Son

    On September 27th of this year, Yusuf / Cat Stevens, took to the most sacred stage in Nashville to awe the sold-out Ryman Auditorium crowd with his persistent musical transcendence. The day prior, Yusuf took to another Nashville stage entirely and performed to no one in particular - a set for himself, of two songs from his earliest days. That stage was the Third Man Records Blue Room, and that set, consisting of the A-sides from Stevens' first two singles, was recorded direct-to-acetate on our 1955 Scully lathe and is now set for release as the second offering in Third Man's Blue Room Sessions series.


    With artwork by world renowned illustrator Jess Rotter, this double A-side 7 features I Love My Dog and Matthew and Son performed by Yusuf and his pared-down touring band with palpable intimacy and a rare calm in the midst of a busy world tour.

    The Trinity

    Working with some of the hottest young producers on the Jamaican dancehall circuit - Steven Lenky Marsden, Don Corleone, Renaissance Crew, and Snowcone, to name a few - Sean spent three years completing his third album THE TRINITY. And although many of the biggest names in hip-hop wanted to work with him, Sean is proud to say that it was all done right here in the Third World. Hence trinity, a spiritual concept that signifies a unity of three in one. It's been said that three is a magic number, and THE TRINITY is definitely a blessed piece of work. Sean possesses an almost supernatural ability to create irresistible hooks that can fill up any dance floor.

    Half-Speed Remastered And Cut To Lacquers At 33 RPM On Heavyweight LP


    Vinyl Cut By Matt Colton At Alchemy Mastering, Mastered By Tony Cousins At Metropolis And Overseen By Peter's Main Sound Engineer Richard Chappell


    Produced by Steve Lillywhite this third album saw Peter change his writing style; now the rhythm came before the melody and the songs were built up on top of the rhythmic sequences. The album delivered a top 5 UK single in Games Without Frontiers and Peter's first overtly political song in the shape of totemic closer Biko. It also features notable contributions from Kate Bush, Paul Weller, Phil Collins and David Rhodes. Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 33RPM, on heavyweight LP. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter's main sound engineer Richard Chappell. These albums really have never sounded so good! They also look amazing with the gatefold sleeves utilizing imagery from the initial release, sourced and re-scanned from original artwork.
