April 11, 2014 - Courtney Barnett is our guest today. She is an extraordinary songwriter from Melbourne, Australia where she self-recorded a pair of EPs that have been combined for U.S release as The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas.
This self-described “hard-working slacker” manages to combine witty wordplay with emotional directness on songs like "Avant Gardener" which describes her response to an anaphylactic attack with detail and humor. She’ll play that and more in our live session today. And visit our World Cafe tumblr page to see Courtney playing one of the songs live in our studio.
