last month i found out the goodtime boys called it quits this january! :'(
i decided i should snatch up their EPs before it's gone forever! i particularly wanted their split with self defense family
and their 7" Every Landscape
. but then i heard their cover of tank park salute and decided i wanted Things I Still Don't Understand
have you ever ordered from b9 before?
this is my first time ordering from them and was so surprised by their awesomeness!!
first off, i was like, why is my packing slip smashed into a little triangle in the corner of the box...?
BECAUSE INSIDE THERE WAS CANDY! CANDY!!no one sends me candy! /(* u * )/ i was so happy and surprised to find it!
so here are the two pieces i set out to buy:
Harrow & Callous are my two favorite songs and the kate bush cover was unexpected and awesome! even the cover is nice and the vinyl color matches perfectly!
and here is Things I Still Don't Understand. I've matched it up with it's companion, Rain.
and since i was snapping pictures, i pulled out What's Left to Let Go
and all together now!
i'm still missing Are we now, or have we ever been?
but one day i'll track it down. also, i only have the digital version of their split with Solutions... pretty rare to find a physical copy from what i've seen. the song Deaner's Last Weekend was the first goodtime boys song i heard and still my favorite!
tell me this is not the best thing you've heard today!
grab more of their music here:
i love you goodtime boys! i'm sorry i didn't get to see you live, but am looking forward to your next projects, guys!
so... since i was ordering from b9, i decided what the heck, i'll just throw these in with my order because i have been wanting these on vinyl for a long time! i survived spring semester and full time work and i deserve it! (fuck yeah, passed physics wooooohoooooo!)
looks awesome in clear!
THE BEST CEREMONY ALBUM.
green is the perfect color for this!
it's so satisfying to have your favorite songs in physical form to hold.
it's like the songs became mine! my albums are also art works.
b9 does not disappoint!
they included these goodies along with all of my goodies:no, thank YOU!!
really, i would have been happy with a sticker! so awesome of them to send this swag!
i'm working my way through the book, discovering a lot of great music here! i read one "issue" every night while i have my coffee at work. i have yet to listen to the cd, i'm saving it for the weekend. :)
this really made my week!
if you ever wondered about ordering from b9, i'd go for it. you will not be disappointed!
