Blue Period is a double LP compilation of Beauty Pill's recordings for Dischord Records between 2003 and 2005. It includes the complete The Unsustainable Lifestyle LP and You Are Right To Be Afraid EP, as well as a full side of previously unreleased outtakes and demos.

This limited edition of 1000 copies comes in a foil stamped gatefold jacket, with unpublished photos and original artwork from Beauty Pill's drummer Ryan Nelson.

Having been present at the creation as a recordist, engineer and performer for some of the turn of the century's landmark DC DIY recordings (Smart Went Crazy, Fugazi, Dismemberment Plan), Beauty Pill ringleader Chad Clark saw the collective as a vehicle for taking the scene's energy in even more poetic and sonically daring places.

These recordings represent an early phase of that effort, presented on vinyl for the first time--now that appreciation for the band's influence and endurance is finally catching up to it.
