Lead single “Nameless, Faceless” is Barnett’s answer to condemnation from an internet troll; it’s also her energizing musical contribution to the #MeToo movement.
About Courtney Barnett
Based in Australia, Barnett played second guitar for Melbourne garage grunge band Rapid Transit and was a member of psych-country band Immigrant Union founded by Bob Harrow and Brent DeBoer (The Dandy Warhols).
She released her debut “Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit” in March, 2015. It was met with critical acclaim by The Guardian and Pitchfork.
The same year, Barnett released a single – “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party” – an exhilarating, amusing rocker that PRP added to its playlist.
Barnett was nominated for a Grammy in 2015 in the “Best New Artist” category, and for Best International Female Artist at the 2016 Brit Awards. She also appeared on Saturday Night Live in 2016, and last year recorded “Lotta Sea Lice” in collaboration with singer-songwriter (and former War on Drugs lead guitarist) Kurt Vile.
From the new album, here’s “Nameless, Faceless.”
Other standouts from the new album: “Walkin’ on Eggshells” featuring a guitar rockfest by Barnett; the exhilarating romp “Crippling Self Doubt and a General Lack of Self Confidence” and her swaggering “Help Yourself.”
Barnett plays a wide variety of guitars including a Harmony H59 Rocket Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar, a Fender Telecaster Electric Guitar, a Taylor Baby Mahogany acoustic guitar and a Fender Left Handed Stratocaster.

Delivered in her trademark deadpan style, Barnett gifts us with ten entertaining, often thought-provoking songs that confirm her talent as a gifted contemporary singer-songwriter.
Touring to promote the new album, Courtney Barnett and her band play Portland’s McMenamins Crystal Ballroom in October.
