Courtney Barnett Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

Wordsmith Courtney Barnett benefits from a complete inability to stop talking, her acerbic wit rolling out over jangling, chiming indie rock songs like Columbo with Just One More Thing to say. Since releasing her double EP classic, she's gone on to make records proper, full of accidentally-on-purpose poetry that can be gleefully inane or politically poignant. She's one of the finest songwriters we've got at the moment and you'd do well to listen to "Avant Gardener" and then everything else too.

Similar to Courtney Barnett:

Kurt Vile, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Angel Olsen, Parquet Courts, Big Thief, Kevin Morby, Sharon Van Etten, Foxygen, Ty Segall, Soccer Mommy, Julien Baker, Hop Along

Tell Me How You Really Feel

I’d like to think you know by now about Courtney Barnett. A lauded master of the musical walk and talk, her double EP and debut LP were great, profoundly comedic works with telltale lyrics of wit and wonder. Mark Kozelek can but dream.

Nameless, Faceless

The song gets in my good books from the get go with an incredible intro that is almost worthy of Madness...view item »

Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)

Courtney Barnett slowed down album ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think’ with a slice of near-ernest melancholy called “Boxing Day Blues”; here she does what any person with a guitar does these days and visited Jack White at Third Man, the world’s bluest label. “Boxing Day Blues (Revisit...view item »

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile
Lotta Sea Lice

Honestly, if I need a breezy rock record of half-hearted energy that sounds like the steam floating out of a cup of coffee… I’ll listen to the Grateful Dead. It’s no offense to the rest of you, that’s just how I feel; that’s just how I’ll meander. This week I have to grant some slackers my attention, though, ...view item »

Courtney Barnett
Sometimes I Sit And Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit

Australian prankster Courtney Barnett is back for the first proper record of her deconstructionist indie pop, in which she talks her way into songs and jokes her way out of dodgy situations. We’ve talked a lot about how happy we are with the potential cancellation of Top Gear and the death knell for Jeremy Clarkson recently, but I would li...view item »

Courtney Barnett
The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas

Courtney Barnett is a storyteller first, relating obscure vignettes of her life to song and then positing them to us, like, "ain't that just the truth?". On The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, she makes mundane stories about gardening sound surreal and cinematic and talks about making out with people at p...view item »
