The first time I heard Courtney Barnett sing, I was writing a passive-aggressive e-mail in a stall of the Sub Pop bathroom, which ended up being the ideal landscape for her casual misdirects of true emotion. With inscrutable delivery and a ramshackle lyrical structure, Barnett tells you about her deepest secrets, most abject failures, and forbidden needs in the course of a simple rock song—seemingly downplaying her own humanity by showcasing it completely. Some of the most affecting music, Barnett’s included, comes from artists who feel exactly like your peers and yet create something that sounds better than however you tried to say it.
