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.
