Courtney Barnett: June 17, 2014 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Courtney Barnett is a natural. Her singing style is so comfortable and nonchalant that she’s been described as “slacker rock” by the lazy non-music media. The reality is that Courtney is an incredibly hard-working artist who has in the last two years founded her own label, played in an Australian super-group, released two EPs and toured incessantly. In fact, Courtney Barnett could be accurately compared to Ty Segall in terms of her indefatigable nature. In May she released her first album with Mom and Pop Music which is essentially re-release of her two EPs as a single long player. The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas is an outstanding collection of songs — really a stunningly mature collection for a artist in her mid-20s. Courtney has performed in NYC quite a bit in the last few months, each time attracting a larger crowd and earlier this month she sold out Bowery Ballroom. Although she’s not a local, this show had that celebratory air that comes with a first-Bowery-sellout event. The trio came out to a warm welcome and immediately launched into a run of four songs before even coming up for air. After she greeted the crowd and thanked all for their support, the band worked more casually through much of the album and a couple of new songs before Courtney played another new song solo for the encore. We’re streaming the main set final “History Eraser” on which the band raged before exiting the stage.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted in our usual balcony location and mixed with an excellent feed by Bowery’s legendary FOH Kenny. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
