Courtney Barnett – ‘Avant Gardener’

Courntey Barnett Avant Gardner

Melbourne-based Courtney Barnett doesn’t just manage to squeeze pun of the year into her recent song title ‘Avant Gardener’, but can also boast the release of a wonderful track reminiscent of US 60s psych-folk and Belle & Sebastian era British indie.

The track is breezy, laid back and comfortable being stuck in its own self-crafted rut, despite what the lyrics reveal; a woman who is ill at ease with her personal and current worth. ‘Avant Gardener’ is taken from the upcoming LP The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, released soon on House Anxiety / Marathon Artists / Milk!
