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 parties like it's a walking nightmare. For an indie pop songwriter with a very keen understanding of making catchy, simple songs, Barnett has a surprising knack for taking us into other, sillier worlds.

10/10 Chris in Copenhagen Customer review, 18th December 2013
Simply the best thing that came out in 2013. A very fresh edition of straight rock music - should be too straight to my ears - but her voice, instrumentation and especially lyrics just makes it an enormous winner.
