The Good Life

Show announcement

Hi folks,

We’re having another slow news year, so just this one item from TGL HQ: we’re playing Sunday, May 1 at Slowdown.

It’s a benefit for Omaha Girls Rock! which is a rad rock camp for girls ages 8-18. It launches this July in Omaha and is spearheaded by TGL’s smooth jazzin’ Stefanie Drootin-Senseney.

All right then, see you there.

Vinyl back in stock!

The powers that be have recovered some of our records that were hidden in a warehouse in Europe. UK versions of Album of the Year LP and Lovers Need Lawyers 10″ are back in stock and up on the Saddle Creek store now. And there are just a few Heartbroke 7″s left.

No news is… mostly no news / AOTY 2CD in stock

Hey friends,

There’s not a whole lot of Good Life news to report. But hello anyway!

The Saddle Creek dudes found some copies of the Album of the Year 2CD version which includes a CD of Tim’s solo demos for the album, recorded in Roger’s basement. It had been out of print (or perhaps “out of print”) for a few years but a couple boxes semi-mysteriously arrived at the SC warehouse a few weeks ago. (For sale here if you’re interested.)

We’re all keeping busy working on other bands (and Cursive is on tour now), so there hasn’t been much activity at TGL HQ. However, we are working on a couple new songs which will hopefully see the light of day before the end of the year. How’s that for slow-moving excitement?

As always, thanks very much for your interest in and support of The Good Life.
