Album Review: The Best of Luck Club By Alex Lahey (9/10)


“Guitar-heavy in the best way, The Best of Luck Club scratches out of genre boxes and stretches out like a dream.”


Australian singer-songwriter Alex Lahey blessed and tore apart 2019 in a grungy and skeptical way with The Best of Luck ClubThis pop-punk/alt-rock album is perfect for slouching and brooding alone on public transit (see: “Misery Guts” and “I Don’t Get Invited to Parties Anymore”). Lahey has a knack for taking bizarre verse-by-verse turns, as in “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself.” More than an angsty bard, Lahey also sneaks in sincere ballads, “Unspoken History” and “Black RMs,” and sweet indie-pop shoutout “Isabella.” Guitar-heavy in the best way, The Best of Luck Club scratches out of genre boxes and stretches out like a dream.
