  • Divine Fits + Mudhoney Live at Third Man Records

    As we trudge through the final moments of Winter, we present to you two live albums born out of the sweaty and oppressive Tennessee Summer... DIVINE FITS, comprised of Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs' Dan Boeckner, Gaunt/New Bomb Turks' Sam Brown and Alex Fischel, recorded an epic set in July of 2013, ending the performance by bringing a fan up on stage to destroy a piñata and litter the blue room with Snickers and Twix…  Rock 'n' roll at its sweetest. All-American grunge pioneers MUDHONEY joined us later in the Summer while touring in support of their ninth (ninth!) studio album, bringing a little piece of Seattle to our lathe room, and now to your turntables and earholes. Both Mudhoney and Divine Fits' 12” LP’s are available for pre-order today. Official release date is next Tuesday, March 4th.

  • Get those Moog t-shirts out of the closet, because Whirlwind Heat is back!

    For Record Store Day 2014 Third Man is primed to celebrate the 11th anniversary of Do Rabbits Wonder? the debut album by Grand Rapids, Michigan art punks Whirlwind Heat. Produced by Jack White, Rabbits is close to our heart as it was the first non-White Stripes release to carry the Third Man logo, long before Nashville storefronts, "vinyl comeback" and all the other trappings currently attached to this fun little label we've grown. To utilize the album's colorful song titles, Third Man is pulling out all the stops and pressing the LP on 12 different colors of vinyl for Record Store Day, with the standard black-vinyl pressing coming later in the year.

    TRACKLIST:

    Orange / Black / Purple / Tan / Green / Blue / Yellow / Pink / Red / Brown / Silver / White / Grey
