I will never get sick of Avant Gardener for the exact reasons you describe. A song about having a panic attack wrapped up in hilariously mundane everyday tasks and delivered with seemingly after several strong hits of valium.

I agree with LM that the songs from the later EP really stood out, but the whole thing was very good.

Now, is it really about a panic attack? Or an anaphylactic shock? I seem to think the latter - there's nothing in particular that would trigger the panic attack there (not that there always is), and she seems to imply some form of allergic reaction (especially at the ambulance). I dunno.

I think she has an authentic Aussie voice, her lyrics are very clever and the music stands up. I think this will be a big year for her - Triple J big of course (she's hardly going to crack the commercials).

Great to finally hear a studio version. That's really great. Love the watery production

Also really love the lyrics as well. It's a suitably mournful take on the modern housing market, creating the future at astronomical prices while tearing down the past without any respect.

Then I see the handrails in the shower
A collection of those cannisters for coffee, tea and flour
And a photo of a young man in a van in Vietnam
I can't think of floorboards anymore
Whether the front room faces south or north
And I wonder what she bought it for


Really gives that final refrain, if you've got a / spare half a million / you could knock it down / and start rebuilding, a heavier emotional weight than it ever had before for me.

I'm not quite on the Courtney Barnett Bandwagon (henceforth to be abbreviated as CBB), but I really love Depreston, and particularly for that refrain you quoted just there. In fact the Jays played it this morning.

What's bloody hilarious today is that like six or seven American music websites/blogs have written that the song is about moving to California hahahahahaha

I mean, really not surprising given Americans' famous insularity, but still very funny.

If she ever breaks down and adopts an American twang and changes a few place names, she could be bigger than Jesus on a bumper sticker.

Once Jeff Tweedy gets hold of her she'll be gone to us.

She could use some lap steel guitar.
