In 2019, dive bars are one of the last places you can go to feel equal. There’s a real lack of pretentiousness and (most) people can agree that they tend to facilitate a great time. This is what Australian musician Alex Lahey noticed while she was decamped in Nashville to work on her sophomore album, The Best Of Luck Club (out now). The album is gloriously unpretentious and doesn’t waste any time in grabbing your attention. Lahey’s sharp songwriting are honed here and most of the instruments on the album were played by her alone. Ken Grand-Pierre welcomes Lahey back on the podcast (for a second time) to chat about how this album came to be.
