Novena on a Nocturn (2000)
The debut album from The Good Life finds Tim Kasher turning away from the heavier sounds he had become known for with Cursive and achieving a new depth of voice through acoustic instrumentation and more textured soundscapes. Originally released in 2000, this is the first time  Novena on a Nocturn has ever appeared on vinyl.

01. A Dim Entrance
02. The Moon Red Handed

Black Out (2002)
Sophomore effort  Black Out signaled The Good Life's transformation from Tim Kasher solo-effort to a full-fledged band. That change makes itself apparent in this collection of upbeat, keyboard driven pop songs intermixed between sparse, vocal driven stories of drunken disappointment. Originally released in 2002, Black Out is back in print on vinyl for the first time in over a decade.

Album of the Year  (2004)
Album of the Year brings all that is the sound of The Good Life to fruition–catchy, moody pop/rock that fluctuates between the all-ages club and the smoky cabaret, right alongside sing-along crescendos that spin into cinematic bursts. It also proved to be The Good Life’s most critically acclaimed album to date. Pitchfork gave it an 8.0, while AP called it one of the “10 essential albums of 2004.” Now back in print for the first time in years and expanded to 2xLP vinyl.
