You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's September 22, 2019 already.
 
Hey, potential customer! We ask only that if you have a local record store, please check with them first to see if they can supply you with our CDs or LPs. We need more local record stores in the world, so let's throw some money their way whenever we can, right?

If you're unfortunate enough to live nowhere near a record store, or if you've got a bunk record store that can't seem to get you the Golden Shoulders music you need, don't despair. You can order any one of these fine products directly from the band. Pay with credit card, secure in the knowledge that the PayPal system we use is the internet's most trusted way of sending money in exchange for goods, services, good services, serviced goods, and Golden Shoulders-related items. You can typically expect your order to be shipped within a week at the latest (and if you absolutely need it earlier than that, e-mail us and we'll see what we can do). Also, if we see your order is going to our local area (Nevada City or Grass Valley addresses), we'll hand-deliver if possible, and we'll refund your shipping cost too. We're good kids. Shop with confidence.

(If you can't find what you're looking for here, like if you're looking for our first CD or a particular t-shirt design you don't see here, that means we're sold out. You can get all of our music digitally from iTunes or Amazon, and most of our CDs are available from sellers on eBay and Amazon. Good luck!)

SEPTEMBER 2019 SHIPPING WARNING: We leave the morning of September 16th on our fall tour. Nothing will be shipped out until we're home at the beginning of October. If you can wait, feel free to place an order! If not, you can buy our CDs and LP from places like Amazon and CDBaby. And, of course, your local record store.

THIS IS LIKELY OF INTEREST ALSO: If we ship your stuff and notice that our PayPal shipping calculator overcharged you for shipping and handling, we'll refund the difference. We're not looking to get rich by charging more for shipping; we're looking to get destitute by playing music with our friends.
