Pre-sale of the week is Lotta Sea Lice by Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile, out on 13 October.
Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, two of the most acclaimed and gifted songwriters of our generation, have joined forces to release a collaboration as unique and unusual as their talents.
In Lotta Sea Lice Barnett and Vile have delivered something utterly unpredictable and original – an instant-classic record which sounds as if the two have played together for decades, completely organic and candid. This is a conversation between friends, documented in raw, unvarnished song form, brimming with personal history, crackling with energy and shot through with humour. There’s an unforced ease to the record, helped by the fact that the pair have been not just friends but hardcore fans of each other’s work for years, and have also roped in musicians such as Mick Thomas and Jim White of The Dirty Three, Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint, and even Mick Harvey.
Note: the LP version comes on indies-only white vinyl.
