Preview: Bridge 9
Since I first got turned on to Goodtime Boys, they have become one of my favorite bands to come out of the UK screamo scene recently. Are We Now has been played been a mainstay on my phone (artists come and go, because I can only fit a certain amount on there). This album starts off with 5 new songs and then ends with the 5 songs on Are We Now. This may seem redundant, but I think it is actually pretty smart. Are We Now was very powerful on it's own, and they managed to add 5 new songs on the front end without that "power" being spread out more sparsely or diminished. All in all, it just feels complete, Are We Now was the first thought and this LP is a realization and extension of that initial thought. I am getting too philosophical, and I feel pretentious. So, I will just let you enjoy this.
Make sure you buy this, Bridge 9 has a variety of neat vinyl options and other packages!
