I love Courtney Barnett

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

She looks like my first girlfriend.
Maybe she's my daughter.
And yeah, the album is seriously excellent.
I am old and cranky.
Here is my music.

really happy about all of the deserved attention she has gotten this year. she's a solid songwriter and great lyricist. everyone i've introduced her album to has loved it

she is seriously very, very good at what she does. you don't really see talent like hers often. i love the lyricism, the way she speaks in to the mic, her whole repertoire. like someone said, she reminds you of VU in a way, but much more homespun and comfortable. a friend of mine joked about how her accent moves around, but i think it makes it even better as well when she's trying to sound twangier. it just feels nice and honest and genuine to listen to. it's real good music in every way.

someone else mentioned the cobain influence, but i also think about his influences, like the mekons and the vaselines especially

I mean, they're straight from Margret Atwood? Plus the most viral tweet from #yesallwomen?

Genuinely wish I had heard “Don’t Apply Compression Gently” as a teen. Feel like it could’ve changed my life if I’d internalized it

she's the best. Somehow I hadn't heard her cover of Rowland S Howard's "Shivers" until recently. Maybe my favorite version. Haven't heard the new album yet...

Hadn't realized this leaked. Don't like it as much as her first two (which I love), after the first listen. It's a pretty depressed record. The promos are definitely highlights.
