GOOD LUCK: Into Lake Grifty: CD

Jul 03, 2009

Good Luck reminds me a bit of The Weakerthans, but in a way I can’t quite put my finger on. They’re a bit louder and rougher, with more infectious energy. The songs are kind of chaotic in that really great way where it makes you want not to dance so much as just jump and flail (but have an awesome time doing it). I became officially sold on the song “Pajammin,” which ends with the chant “Oh the feeling/is spreading out to the ceiling/when the band plays everyone’s favorite song.” It’s worth mentioning that “Pajammin” is the second track on the album; the other eleven tracks were just gravy.
