From the first downbeat, Good Luck With Whatever, the seventh studio album by the Los Angeles-based rock band Dawes, sets a tone all its own. It’s the band at their most unapologetic—songs like “Didn’t Fix Me” and “Me Especially” showcase lead singer Taylor Goldsmith’s poetic prowess perfectly; a historian of the human condition, Goldsmith transforms turmoil into motor oil.

Dawes began their journey in the San Fernando Valley back in 2009. Having played with, for and against some of rock’s most illustrious icons, the merry men have picked up more than a few things when it comes to sticking around and what it means to be a true band.

Good Luck With Whatever is an unfiltered photograph of Dawes doing what they do best—a moment in the timeline of a 10-year-old band still possessed by wonderment and fearlessness. These guys learned to rock before they could crawl, and now it’s time to let ‘em run.

Taylor Goldsmith, frontman of the band Dawes, gives you several occasions to consider his physical or psychological age in Good Luck With Whatever, the group’s wonderful seventh album.”


– Variety

There isn’t a single song [on the album] that doesn’t creep under the skin and remain lodged there for the duration of the encounter. Every one speaks directly to its listeners and resonates with them as well.”


– American Songwriter
