Courtney Barnett during CMJ 2013 – Photo by Adela Loconte
Aussie crooner Courtney Barnett
caught our ear-ttention during her first Stateside shows at CMJ Music Marathon
last year. Her double EP, A Sea Of Split Peas
, was one of our top albums of 2013
, and we got all sweaty and stuttering again when she toured the U.S. at the beginning of this year
. So yeah, we’re fans.
Now Barnett has shared a cover of the Lemonheads’ silly sing-song tune, Being Around.
It’s more melancholic than the Lemonheads’ version, so that even when Barnett asks what you would do if she were a booger, you still might feel your heart breaking a little. Listen to a live in-studio version of the cover for Sirius XMU below.
