AJJ - Good Luck Everybody

AJJ frontman Sean Bonnette can summarize the band's new album, Good Luck Everybody, in a single sentence: "Sonically, it's our least punk record, and lyrically, it's our most punk record."

And indeed, Good Luck Everybody (January 17, 2020), the Arizona band's seventh album, stands out in their already diverse catalog. While still rooted in the folk-punk sound AJJ has become known for, the album is unafraid to delve into new territories that test the limits of what the band is capable of.

"I think it explores some of the weirder sides of AJJ, the more experimental leanings that we've had in the past," says bassist Ben Gallaty. Good Luck Everybody draws from a wealth of sonic inspirations, from Laurel Canyon folk-rock of the 60s and 70s to avant garde artists like Suicide, as well as some orchestral pop. There is even a piano ballad, the tragic "No Justice, No Peace, No Hope."

Lyrically, Good Luck Everybody is a change of pace from the idiosyncratic songwriting style Bonnette has honed over more than 15 years fronting AJJ. It still features his wonderfully weird turns of phrase and oddball word pairings, but this time, his thematic lens is more directly focused on the inescapable atrocities of the world around him. Longtime fans will recognize the album's social commentary as a return to their 2011 release, Knife Man, but this time it's fueled by a more radical urgency.

"I usually try for a timeless effect in songwriting, so that you can hear a song and generally not think about the context under which it was written," says Bonnette. "But for this one, I was trying to write, and all the bad political shit just kept invading my brain and preventing me from writing that way. So I decided to fully embrace it and exorcise that demon."

Much like Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs pulled their songs straight from newspaper headlines, Good Luck Everybody feels like a long scroll through social media feeds on a particularly volatile day.

The song "Mega Guillotine 2020," for example, came directly from Twitter. It was influenced by Twitter funnyperson @leyawn's popular tweet depicting a mockup of a French Revolution-style guillotine with one blade and enough headrests for 15 Congress members. Bonnette says the idea inspired him to press record and start playing, and when he did, the entire song came out of his brain fully formed. The final version also features backing vocals by Kimya Dawson.

"There's something that comes along with scrolling through your phone on Twitter or Instagram and seeing a puppy, and then a joke from a comedian, and then a young black person being shot by police, and then another puppy, and then your friends announcing a tour, and then children in cages," says Bonnette. "There's something in that that fucks your brain up. I don't know if it's made me more of a passionate arguer or just made me confused and numb."


On "Normalization Blues," Bonnette laments what this never ending deluge of atrocities has done to our humanity: "I can feel my brain a'changin', acclimating to the madness / I can feel my outrage shift into a dull, despondent sadness / I can feel a crust growing over my eyes like a falcon hood / I've got the normalization blues, this isn't normal, this isn't good."

Later, on "Psychic Warfare," Bonnette takes out some aggression on the man at the root of it all, albeit through his trademark polite aggression: "For all the pussies you grab and the children you lock up in prison, for all the rights you roll back and your constant stream of racism / For all the poison you drip in my ear, for all your ugly American fear, I wrote you this beautiful song called 'Psychic Warfare.'"

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
ALL AGES


By most fifth LPs, the band's sound is pretty set. Parameters established. Refinement dissipated. You get a to-formula execution of what's worked in the past. Fair enough. All Them Witches go a harder route.

In 2017, the Nashville four-piece offered what might've otherwise become their own template in their fourth album (second for New West), Sleeping Through the War. It
brought a larger production value thanks to oversight from producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Shooter Jennings, etc.), found them using choral vocals, expanded arrangements, bigger sounds than anything they'd done before.
They could've easily fallen into a pattern of watered-down clones of that record. Easily.

So naturally in a year they've thrown it all to the Appalachian wind, turned the process completely on its head and gone the other way: recording in a cabin in Kingston Springs about 20 miles outside of Nashville on I-40, with guitarist Ben McLeod at the helm. Self-produced. Take that, expectation. The result, mixed by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Kurt Vile), is the most intimate, human-sounding album All Them Witches have recorded and another redefinition of who they are as a band. Introducing keyboardist/percussionist Jonathan Draper to the fold with McLeod, bassist/vocalist Charles Michael Parks, Jr., and drummer/graphic artist Robby Staebler, All Them Witches' ATW isn't self-titled by mistake.
