The day has finally arrived. We are so pleased to share KELLEY STOLTZ's new release Double Exposure with the masses. The record has already received high praise from Mojo Magazine and Uncut — both of whom have called it his best album yet. Check out the reviews above. If you haven’t already ordered your copy, do so here, and if you’re on the West Coast, be sure to catch one of Kelley’s upcoming shows in your neck of the woods. Here’s to synthesizers, fusion cuisine, oil-stained garages, wine buzzes, tape machines and delay pedals…. Ladies and gentlemen, Kelley Stoltz!

A whole mess of exciting KELLEY STOLTZ news coming at you today, and we are figuratively tripping over ourselves to rush all this information into your eyes, ears and brains as quickly as possible. Let’s cut to the chase!

First and foremost the San Franciscan garage pop alchemist is dropping the delicious and lysergic video for “Kim Chee Taco Man” on the masses. Directed by Ryan Browne, it explores deeply resonating themes such as the spiritual quest for enlightenment via hand eaten fusion cuisine. It’s every bit as delicious as it is catchy. Dive in and taste the music, as they say… 

Secondly, we’re excited to say that pre-orders for Kelley’s new album Double Exposure (in stores Sept. 24th) are now available. Orders will be fulfilled and shipped to reach the customer by release date. It’s easy, it’s fun and hey… you’re already watching the video, might as well grab the LP while you’re at it. 

Double Exposure

Last and certainly not least, Kelley will be doing a string of live dates around the release including a record release show in San Francisco w/ The Mantles and Sopwith Camel. That’s going down on Sept. 28th at The Chapel and here’s a few more dates for you with more to come!

And now to the announcement of the latest Vault Platinum Package… lucky number 17. With all of the blood, sweat and tears that has gone on behind the scenes here to build the new Vault service it quickly became apparent to us there could only be one package that would be worthy of our inaugural offering under the new Vault banner.
One of the highlights of our year (so far) has been the esteemed honor of hosting country music legend Willie Nelson here at Third Man to celebrate his 80th birthday. On April 18th of this year Willie played a concert with some guest musicians, among them real life legacy artists, but also importantly, some handpicked sidemen from the house of Third Man. This special performance for CMTs prestigious Crossroads TV show was all caught and camera and broadcast. Behind the scenes, we were rolling tape on that historic show (as is Third Man’s way) and every song (even those non-broadcast) was captured on beautiful, warm-sounding analog tape by our crack team of engineers. It was in many respects a perfect evening.
We are very proud to present one of the most heartwarming, intimate, and downright legendary shows we’ve ever had the pleasure of hosting within our walls. Ladies and Gentleman a big thank you to Mr. Willie Nelson and all of the amazing artists involved for the opportunity for us to present to you… The Vault Platinum Package #17. SIGN UP TO BECOME A VAULT MEMBER HERE.

THE DOUGH ROLLERS BLUE SERIES 7”
Our Blue Series of 7”s continues it’s stampede over the music industry on July 9th with a staggering entry from Los Angeles’ angels with dirty faces, THE DOUGH ROLLERS. Featuring an expanded and electrified line-up, Malcolm Ford (vox, guitar) and Jack Byrne (guitar) are now joined by Josh Barocas and Kyle Olson on bass and drums, respectively. Their Third Man Blue Series is the inaugural voyage for the new line up, and what a debutante party it is…
The invigorated power quatro blasted by Third Man a couple months back and dropped two perfectly formed slabs of American blues rock on us… “Little Lily” is an inner ear explosion with the energy and tension of a train rolling off the rails and the rails are Malcolm’s pleading whiskey damaged vocals. Continuing with this brilliant outmoded forms of transportation as music metaphor, “The Sailing Song” rolls along with high seas majesty, The Dough Rollers as drunken shipmates and Jack Bryne’s solo is a bottle of rum smashed on the rocks. The boat never sinks though, cause this shit isn’t a boat after all but a freaking life raft. So get on board and let the Dough Rollers pillage your village!
"Little Lily" premiered on Noisey today, Pre-sales are available now, and the release will officially be available in stores and on iTunes July 9th. Stay tuned to this Bat Channel for more news and information on The Dough Rollers!
