  • AUTOLUX LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS LP RELEASE

    Posted by Third Man on 13 September 2016

    Third Man Records has a theory: It's impossible not to like Autolux. Because Carla Azar. Because of the soundtrack-of-the-otts symphony of their first two records. Because of their recent release PUSSY'S DEAD, which sounds more like the future than the score to TRON. Because two of the band's members met while composing the music for a Nobel-prize winner's play. Because Danger Mouse's 30th Century Records is their new label home (and we love us some Danger Mouse.) Because this. And this. And this. Following that logic, it’s impossible not to also like Autolux’s first live record, captured direct-to-acetate on Third Man Records’ 1955 Scully lathe on March 26th, 2016.

    Eugene Goreshter, Greg Edwards, and Carla Azar made the Blue Room stage feel small that evening, Azar standing atop her drum throne, projections kaleidoscoping on the acoustic tiling behind them. It was one of their first live shows together in the years since their last record, Transit Transit, was released (in 2010), the in between of which saw each band member pursuing other worthy projects. No time to lose, the band’s cohesion was immediate, their sense-of-self solid, and their energy infectious.  

    Some of the best tracks of PUSSY’S DEAD made it into this live set, to the delight of the ecstatic Nashville audience that Saturday night: “Soft Scene,” “Anonymous,” “Brainwasher,” to name a few. Combine with a few well-placed gems from their previous releases (“Plantlife!” “Blanket!”), and the result is one of the most fun (and one of the more nuanced) records in the Third Man Live catalog. 

    Autolux Live at Third Man Records is officially out and available at a record store near you on September 30th, 2016.

    Have a listen to “Brainwasher” (track 4 off the live record) below, and pre-order the LP now.

  • Rest In Peace, Art

    Posted by Third Man on 11 September 2016

    We lost a member of the family this weekend who brought a lot of color to the Third Man world. Art Tidwell was a painter who was responsible for making so many of our spaces the signature Third Man yellow we've all come to expect, both in Nashville and Detroit — not a small task, by any means. All our love today goes out to Tonya and Art's family. He will be truly missed, and we are so grateful for his contributions and friendship.
