Got A Girl Crush on 25-year-old Australian Singer/Songwriter, Courtney Barnett

So you’re sitting at a bar and minding your own business and you overhear someone telling a story. Despite your best intentions to not be nosy, this person’s voice, their delivery, everything draws you in. You hear a subtle punchline in their mundale tale and before you even turn to look at their face you know you want them to be your new best friend.

No, I didn’t meet Courtney Barnett this week, but this is the best way I can describe how I felt when I discovered her unpretentiously droll music via CMJ coverage. Apparently I missed many an opportunity to see her live, delaying our inevitable bestfriendship. I’m not worried, Courtney. We’ll find each other one day.
