Reviews range from calling her “The next queen of Australian rock and roll” to just wanting to be mates with her: “I’ve only ever met her once but I can tell she’s a legend.” If you haven’t befriended Courtney yet, there’s still time before the big Do in December. Maybe start with ‘History Eraser’. Enjoy playful, amusing, interesting narratives in a bit of rock n roll, with some poppy, slacker elements. Luxuriate in the totally non-affected singing voice.
It was only a couple of years ago that Courtney gathered a bunch of like-minded friends, recorded an EP of rambling garage pop and began life as a front-woman. It’s been fun to watch her progress and evolution to be one of Melbourne’s Brightest. Saturday morning, with her band “The Courtney Barnetts”.
