COURTNEY BARNETT AND KURT VILE
“LOTTA SEA LICE” LP

RELEASED TODAY ON MARATHON ARTISTS/ MATADOR/ MILK! RECORDINGS

 

“Sublime…an album that splendidly makes the most of a unique creative kinship” – Uncut, Album of the Month

“Everything here sounds gorgeous…makes prodigious use of their respective talents” – Loud and Quiet, 9/10

“The perfect match” – Q

“Jangly and charming” – Mail on Sunday, 4 stars
Today sees the release of “Lotta Sea Lice”, a very special collaborative album between Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, and one which is every bit as unique and unusual as their talents.With “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 colleagues such as Mick Turner and Jim White of the Dirty Three, Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint and even Mick Harvey to play.

Lotta Sea Lice” has already been awarded critical accolades, from the likes of Pitchfork, Guardian, Loud and Quiet, Q and Uncut, which made it their Album of the Month. Their US tour, which kicked off this week, has also sold out, taking in dates in Joshua Tree, LA, Seattle, Chicago and more.
