Courtney Barnett, "Avant Gardener"


A tad tardy to this one, but she is Australian so here in this hemisphere the video qualifies as practically new, right? Just agree with me, it's easier. Okay so, I want you to stick with this one all the way through. You will spend the first minute or two checking all the references she either intentionally or unknowingly makes, and then you will find yourself focusing on the video for a little bit and then small stuff will jump out you, like the way Prison Islanders pronounce it "pseudo EFF-a-DRIN" then, almost imperceptibly, the song will get under your skin until suddenly it's over and you're all, "Huh, that was pretty good!" I mean, at least that's the way it worked with me. Anyway, she's all over town this week, if you want to go see her live it should not be that hard.

Comments seemed to be messed up today. Two I left earlier have vanished.

And now it's back again. What's up tech support?
