Courtney Barnett is my favorite new-ish discovery.

I haven’t been listening to a lot of music with vocals this year but when I heard “Avant Gardener” I didn’t think twice about downloading the rest of the album.The songs seem to be ushering in a spring feeling for me.

I immediately want to sit on my balcony at home and drink a light beer and do random internet searches for cheap bicycles.

I guess what I’m saying is, this music makes me feel young and somewhat care-free. So far there is no hang over. I love the narrative that slinks through the whole song and anything to do with respiratory problems speak to my asthmatic anxious soul.
