Courtney’s things, part one: Courtney Barnett (yes, that is her)

“History Eraser” by Courtney Barnett | Five months ago I mentioned Courtney Barnett, writing about the Aussies’ thing for language warnings (officially). Since then she’s released a new song, “History Eraser”, which still features her lovely laid-back drawl that oddly draws you in. “In my brain I rearrange the letters on the page to spell your name.” You mean my name? Anyway, she dropped me a line last week and sent me three recommendations from her friends over at Milk! Records (which she is part of). “I promise there are no swear words in these next songs,” she wrote, although her mentioning masturbation in “Lance Jr.” didn’t really shock me, but definitely caught my attention. Hmm. There’s a tactic right there! Anyway, if you’re in Australia (and I’m not) this single’s already out in stores, and her second EP should drop next year. (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
