Double EP from excellent Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett. Fans of bands like Camera Obscura and Belle & Sebastian will enjoy this one for sure, and with news of a new album on the way, there's never been a better time to explore it.
The collection is a record of two halves and collates her story so far. It fittingly begins with six brand new songs and is then backed with six older tracks which were originally released in the form of her 2012 debut EP.
Together, ‘The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas’ spans genres and stories, and is a unique introduction to an incomparable and exciting new talent. As well as ‘Avant Gardener’, selected highlights include the gorgeous and woozy piano-strewn opener ‘Out Of The Woodwork’, which shows the darker side of her writing. ‘Anonymous Club’ sees Courtney at her romantic, melancholic best, while the infectious, Dylan-esque cavalcade that is ‘History Eraser’ was recently nominated alongside Tame Impala for the APRA Song Of The Year back in Australia.
