White will release singles from both groups in March as part of the label's 'Blue Series,' a move which should cheer up fans still upset about the White Stripes' official demise.
According to Third Man Records' site, "everything from jazz, string ragtime, country blues, and western swing" is promised from St. Louis' Pokey and the South City Three, which is led by 26-year-old songwriter Pokey LaFerge, heralded by the label as "a traditional American music purist."
The single, which was produced by White, features the tracks: 'Chittlin' Cookin' Time in Cheatham County' and 'Pack It Up.'
As for the seven-inch on the way from Indianapolis' We Are Hex, the label describes their sound as "refreshingly raw, honest and urgent."
Featuring 'Twist the Witch's Titty' and 'Through the Doldrums to the Dum Dums,' We Are Hex's single also has the distinction of having "perhaps the best song titles on Third Man so far," according to the label.
Third Man has posted 30-second teasers from both of the singles on its site. Limited-edition tri-colour versions of each record will be available.
As suggested by the folks at Exclaim, if you happen to visit Third Man headquarters in Nashville, TN, you can preview these new tracks as performed by the Third Man Monkey Band.
Yes, we said Monkey Band.
