Closing out an exceptional year at Third Man Records is a release that's pretty near and dear to us. It should come as no surprise to the TMR faithful that Lillie Mae Rische is a complete bad-ass and an all-around powerhouse of melody. She first joined the TMR family a little over two years ago and ever since--whether onstage w/ Jack White and his band or in the studio--she's been, how you say, delivering us from evil with fiddle playing so stupefying as to propel listeners into the jaws of heavenly awe. Feel me on this, y'all?
Here we have Lillie Mae Rische center stage. Her contribution to our Blue Series showcases two original songs, charming and plaintive, with the B-side hitting us with a story of hearts on the road, having to reconcile distance and desire. Meanwhile, the A-side is a gentle yet stern anthem about the sweet and sour circumstances of being alone. All in a voice that's sweeter than peach brandy.
Joining her are some longtime Third Man contributors Carl Broemel, Dominic Davis, Jack Lawrence, and local drum god, Whip Triplet.
Tune in to VH1 tomorrow night, November 27th, at 9pm ET/PT to watch “A Very Bonnaroo Thanksgiving” featuring clips of Jack’s epic 2014 headline set and The White Stripes' 2007 performance.
BLACK FRIDAY PLANS:
Some people get up early on Black Friday to stand in line for televisions and treadmills and toasters. We like that our fans are the type of people who stand in line for one thing, and one thing only: MUSIC. This Black Friday we will be selling limited edition vinyl of The Dough Rollers GONE BABY GONE EP as well as Bill Burr's LIVE AT ANDREW'S HOUSE LP from our Nashville storefront beginning at 9am. We will also have black vinyl of the newest trio of Sun Records Reissues: Roy Orbison's "Ooby Dooby b/w Go! Go! Go!," "Sweet and Easy to Love b/w Devil Doll," and "Chicken-Hearted b/w I Like Love" (also available online).
At our physical location, we will also be selling the absolute... final... remaining... general admission tickets to Jack White's Bridgestone arena show in January. A free "Would You Fight For My Love" 7" will come with every ticket purchased. This is your last chance to be a part of the up-close-and-personal crew at this show.
And, for those of you who love a deep discount, we are offering 30% off (with a few exceptions*) in-store and online using the code "BLACKANDWHITE." This promotion lasts through Sunday, November 30th.
ROBOT MONDAY PLANS:
LAZARETTO ROULETTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As you've surely learned by now, we love a good game of roulette, and so we've decided to offer our biggest selling record of the year to you all with a chance to play, and a chance to WIN! Purchase the Lazaretto ULTRA LP in our online store for the special price of $8.99 and you will receive a little extra something along with your ULTRA LP. It could be just a small token of our affection, or it could be the collector/aficionado's surprise of a lifetime. One thing is for certain, you can't win if you don't play.
Robot Monday also has us feeling particularly generous towards our beloved Vault members, who will receive 50% off almost anything in the Vault store using the code "FRIENDSANDFAMILY." Have at it, girls and boys.
* 30% off does not apply to limited, exclusive releases from the Dough Rollers or Bill Burr, Paramount sets, Pro-Ject turntables, Bumblebuzz pedals, discounted Lazaretto LP's, or gift cards. Cannot be combined with other promotions.
For the next month, Third Man Records will be throwing a Holiday Help-a-Thon, and there are all sorts of ways to get involved and end 2014 feeling good about your contribution to society.
The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry, homeless and hurting, and we are so honored to have such great neighbors. In 2013, they served over 669k meals to those in need, offered close to 35k hours of free education, and provided almost 278k nights of safe shelter to those who would otherwise spend the night on the street. Last holiday season, we did a Turkey drive in November, and this season we'd like to solidify the tradition of giving back with your help. This year, the Mission has expressed a special need for toys and clothes for children as well as food items for their Christmas dinner.
Bring us 3 of any of the following donation items (today through December 19th during normal business hours) and be entered to win the ultimate prize of 2014: a copy of EACH EXCLUSIVE RECORD we released in 2014. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. (Excludes Vault packages, of course.) —PLUS— receive 30% off your purchase (certain items excluded*) —OR— a free recording in our Record Booth at our Nashville storefront (a great gift for Mom!). If this doesn't get you in the giving spirit, we don't know what will. Here's what we need:
The month of being good people, the whole lot of us, will end with another opportunity to give blood to the American Red Cross on December 19th. With the generosity of Third Man fans, we helped up to 96 people live to spend another holiday season with their loved ones, and we are thrilled to have the chance to double that number this month.
Like our previous blood drive, space is limited, and we won't let you leave a pound lighter with nothing to show for it. Donors will be granted one gift from beneath the Third Man Family Christmas tree, and trust us, there are no ugly sweaters, socks, or vacuum cleaners in there... every wrapped mystery gift will delight and excite! If you are eligible and would like to donate blood in our drive, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, address, phone number and age. Appointments will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis, and we cannot accommodate any walk-ins.
We THANK YOU in advance for helping us help others. We have it so good having you all around.
NOTE: For those of you who would like to contribute but are out of town, feel free to donate directly to the Mission or the Red Cross, OR send us your donations in a package to the following address. Include your NAME, E-MAIL ADDRESS, and PHONE NUMBER in the package.
