#3. Courtney Barnett
Australian indie rocker Courtney Barnett comes in at #3 on my list of must-see Coachella Bands. The witty singer-songwriter and guitarist has been making music since 2009.
Her 2015 debut full-length Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit was named by this blog as the Album Of The Year for 2015. A few of the tracks from the album did pretty well in my Top 101 Tracks of 2015 countdown, “Depreston” #54, “Nobody Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party” #21, and “Pedestrian At Best” #4.
Now that I think of it, was Melbourne informed?
The 2015 masterpiece was preceded by several extended plays, most notable, the 2014 Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas. The EP is home to the fun tracks “Avant Gardener” and “History Eraser.”
Prior to overplaying and ruining all the tracks on Grimes’ new album “Art Angel,” Sirius XMU attempted to do the same thing to Courtney Barnett. I refuse to let that happen, I change the channel every time Ms. Barnett is played on XMU. I made a decision, I’ll listen to SISAT,ASIJS when the time is right, the way all great albums deserve to be played.
Courtney Barnett is making her second Coachella appearance, she also played the fest back in 2014, she was one of those “late-adds” that year.
