Jack White’s Third Man Records this week welcomed both Thurston Moore and Alison Mosshart as guests on the latest edition of their ‘At-Home Concert Series’.
The ongoing video series has been providing intimate at-home performances throughout quarantine as well as book readings and other wholesome content which is making self-isolation easier. This week’s hour-long instalment was incredibly special as both Thurston Moore and Alison Mosshart treated the virtual audience to brand new material from their own respective lockdown spaces.
Former Sonic Youth frontman Moore took to debuting ‘mantra for d.a. levy’, which is a piece named after one of his favourite Beat writers with his partner Eva Prinz filming him perform from their London residence. The episode also featured Pavement co-founder Scott Kannberg AKA Sprial Stairs who performed his new song ‘Fingerprintz’.
Meanwhile, Jack White’s bandmate in The Dead Weather, Alison Mosshart, took to performing ‘Roadkill’. The track is previously unreleased and is set to appear on SOUND WHEEL, a new spoken word record that will accompany Mosshart’s upcoming book of art, photography, and writing called CAR MAN. The record and book are both due out in August via Third Man and follow her recent solo singles ‘Rise’ and ‘It Ain’t Water’.
Third Man co-founder Ben Swank made this emphatic statement when announcing the quarantine based series: “We’re attempting to capture the lunacy and creativity of this incredibly unique time and present it through an early MTV meets late-night UHF psychedelic experience, Join us, while we laugh through the tears in the rain… F*ck Trump.”
