I have a total crush on Courtney Barnett. She's a great guitarist, she doesn't hide her plaintive Aussie accent, her verbose lyricism is both affecting and amusing - and she knows how to write a good song. When I listen to 'Avant Gardener' I forget that there aren't many people out there that have innate melody in every pore of their being. Writing a song about having a panic attack whilst gardening shouldn't be a good song - yet 'Avant Gardener' is frontrunner for my favourite song of the year. Barnett is a revelation.
