The inner workings of coolness from Third Man Records is something that never ceases to amaze. The Jack White founded local label has long been recognized for releasing incredibly unique music of all genres, take for example the release of Ennio Morricone’s score for The Hateful Eight last year, but, this Friday, the label has three new releases coming up from Nashville based artists, Coupler, Essential Tremors, and William Tyler. Coupler took over the iconic Blue Room Studio at Third Man to create a pulse driving electronic set that was really more of an improvised jam session. Essential Tremors veered away from their guitar based sound, and are releasing a 7-inch that feels more like a synth driven tour bus through the New Wave invasion. The William Tyler record features 5-tracks recorded during a live performance in 2014, which was kept in the can until Tyler was able to release his incredible new album, Modern Country, earlier this year.
Whether you are a fan of the unique, a fan of one of these bands in particular, or just a fan of the Nashville Music Scene as a whole; these are three releases that are worthy of your consideration. You can pre-order vinyl for Coupler, Essential Tremors, and William Tyler at the links you just read, and you can head below to check out clips from each of the recordings. Also of note, if you are in the Nashville area, you can head out for the Coupler release show at The East Room on July 29 with Future Daze and DJ Pale Rider, and the Essential Tremors release show takes place at Soft Junk Nashville on Aug. 5 with Spodee Boy, Serration Pulse, and Aquarian Blood. William Tyler is gearing up for a run of dates with Wilco, Margo Price, and Bombino that will keep him on the road for most of the fall.
