Event Details

Courtney Barnett puts a lot of effort into sounding effortless. Her songs are wild and wooly and wordy, her lyrics plainspoken and delivered like she’s making them up on the spot. In 2012 Courtney started Milk! Records and released her debut EP I've Got A Friend Called Emily Ferris. Her second EP How To Carve A Carrot Into A Rose (2013) received international acclaim, taking her and the band, Dave Mudie (drums), Bones Sloane (bass) and Dan Luscombe (guitar) all around the world. In 2014 her EP’s were re-released as The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas.

Barnett has a gift for turning mundane scenarios into gripping stories... brilliant (pre) debut - Pitchfork

Courtney Barnett is a remarkable new talent. - 4/5 TimeOut

Barnett's music builds on the wordy irreverence of mid-'60s Bob Dylan and a Byrds-ian blend of psychedelia, folk and country. - Pitchfork

What sets her apart is she's got a sense of songwriting that hearkens back to the creative burst of the late '60s. Specifically in California -- her melodies and psychedelic harmonies remind me of the work of David Crosby or John Phillips. - Brooklyn Vegan
