I've just discovered her music and i really like it, i've been listenong to the lp quite a lot lately. I don't know if anyone heard it, like it or hate it?
She's a songwriter from Australia and has only an LP out so far plus a cd with two eps on it, it reminds me of Pavement somehow, slacker singing. The lyrics are cool and quite funny sometimes, anyway, i wanted to share, check her bandcamp if you are curious.

It's amazing and came out of nowhere. Everyone should give this LP a listen.

So funny, just a couple hours ago I was walking to the post office and I bumped into Deenah (from L.A. Boobs and Pizza Underground and other antifolk stuff), and she was telling me about Courtney Barnett and how Courtney Barnett is playing two big shows in NYC this week (maybe tonight? I forget), and how I should check out Courtney Barnett... so I told Deenah "so many people keep telling me to check her out, it makes me want to NOT check her out!"
But I guess she must be good.

Amazon keep emailing me links to the records and telling me I should like them, this too makes me not want to have a look, some evil marketing machine must be behind it all. x

Yeah, that's the way I felt when the most recent Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks album came out, and just because Google Chrome reads my emails I couldn't go to Youtube or to Gmail without having ads for where I could download that album! So, even though I wanted the album, I felt it was so invasive and annoying that I refused to follow the links and download it... just out of spite.
(I ended up buying the CD at a local music shop)
(However, that music shop has now gone out of business, so my options are diminishing!)

When did we get so media apathetic that adverts make us not want to buy things? If everyone becomes like us then the advert will be useless and maybe disappear all together.
We had an election this week in the UK, and I felt the same about the party footage I saw and read about, I think I'm just born to be a minority type person that does the opposite of what I'm told by the media generally. Weird too as I am generally a compliant person who does as they're told.
I am sad to hear the lack of music shops are an issue, seems to be all across the west that this is happening.

Oh man, this is hilarious, you're never going to believe who was just hanging out with me in my apartment here in NYC - Courtney Barnett!!! I'll tell you the whole story in a bit... gotta get back to work stuff...
More info soon! (I can't believe this actually happened, after she was just the topic of recent conversation!!!)

Random people just turn up at your house and hang around when you don't know who they are? That's strange. People I know don't even come to my house! x

Well, here's the story:
My old buddy Darren Hanlon is a songwriter from Australia, he's quite well-known in Australia, I've played a number of gigs with Darren, in Norway and other places, I toured Australia as his support act in 2009, and I like to see him whenever he's in New York. I like his stuff a lot. He's friends with Courtney, from the Australia music scene, and he played a gig with her last night here in NYC, so I went to the show. Today he came over to meet me for lunch before he moves on to his next gig, and he brought Courtney with him. She already knows my stuff, apparently! Then Darren had to run and catch a train (which actually he missed!) and after he left I hung out with Courtney for a bit longer, then she left to meet a friend and see a museum, and I got back to work (I'm working on my new album artwork). She seemed cool.
So that's how I hung out with Courtney Barnett today... and now I'm finally going to her Bandcamp page to listen to the recordings.
So funny how the universe seemed to demand that I hear these recordings... first Turner Cody told me to hear them, then other people, and you guys told me to check her albums out, and then I somehow actually ended up with her being in my apartment, so now I really HAVE to hear her recordings! I have no escape!

She is really good, probably the best new artist I've discovered this year.
