The sophomore effort from Oregon-bred trio Joseph, Good Luck, Kid is a road movie in album form, an odyssey at turns emotional, existential, and entirely literal. With their intimate storytelling and restless intensity, Natalie Schepman and her sisters Allison and Meegan Closner detail that journey in songs that careen and sprawl and often soar, ultimately spinning a narrative of life-changing transformation.
The through-line of the album is this idea of moving into the drivers seat of your own liferecognizing that youre the adult now, and everythings up to you from this moment on, says Natalie. Youre not completely sure of how to get where you need to go, and you dont have any kind of a map to help you. Its just the universe looking down on you like, Good luck, kid.
In the making of Good Luck, Kid, Joseph deliberately strayed from the dreamy folk of their 2016 debut Im Alone, No Youre Not, giving way to a far grittier and more dynamic sound. Produced by Christian Leggy Langdon (Meg Myers, Charlotte OC), the result is a nuanced breed of pop/rock built on thick drums and lustrous guitars, heavy grooves and radiant melodies. Despite that bolder sonic palette, Good Luck, Kid remains centered on the bands crystalline vocal work, including the otherworldly harmonies that suggest a near-telepathic connection among sisters.
