Courtney Barnett is a Melbourne-based singer/songwriter. In 2012 she started her own label, Milk! Records, and released her first EP I’ve Got A Friend Called Emily Ferris to glowing reviews around Australia. That quickly snowballed into International critical acclaim in 2013 with her second EP How To Carve A Carrot Into A Rose. Barnett then combined these two EP releases into one package and called it The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, a 12-track collection which collates her story so far and is a unique introduction to an incomparable and exciting new talent.
Along with standout single, "Avant Gardener," selected highlights from the album include the gorgeous and woozy piano-strewn opener "Out of the Woodwork," which showcases a darker side of her writing. "Anonymous Club" portrays Courtney at her most romantic and melancholic, while "History Eraser" is an infectious Dylan-esque cavalcade that was recently nominated (alongside Tame Impala) for the APRA Song Of The Year in Australia. And let’s not forget "Lance Jr." which was the first song to catch people’s ears.
“Barnett’s music builds on the wordy irreverence of mid-’60s Bob Dylan and a Byrds-ian blend of psychedelia, folk and country.” – Mike Powell, Pitchfork
“Tales that unspool like barstool revelations and sound like some hybrid of Kimya Dawson and Kurt Cobain.” - Rolling Stone
