The collaborative team up album of the year, Lotta Sea Lice, from Australian musician Courtney Barnett and American musician Kurt Vile is due out this Friday. Although County Barnett is a relative newcomer to the music scene (she has previously released two EPs and one full length album), her easygoing vocal style and thrilling guitar playing gels very comfortably with Kurt Vile. Vile was the former lead guitarist and co-founding member of The War on Drugs, but has since gone on to release six solo albums.
So far, the duo of Barnett and Vile have given us a good taste of a couple of songs from the upcoming LP, but just this week they headed over to KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic program to play two new songs live in studio. You can listen to them below.
Lotta Sea Lice drops this Friday, October 13th. You can pre-order it right here.
