Video of the Day: Courtney Barnett

Share this post

Courtney Barnett is the next mid-sized thing.

Her quirky, Velvet Underground-ish-ness will keep her from being the next big thing — unless the masses just got a whole lot cooler — but there’s no denying the indie singer-songwriter’s talent.

And, as intriguing as are her abilities when performing solo and acoustic for La Blogothèque, the word on the street is that her plugged-in performances with a backing band are blowing people away. The bleeding edge of the masses will get a chance to see her for themselves when she takes the stage at the Coachella Music Festival in April.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
