Courtney Barnett’s New Song is Just Her Talking, and its Lovely


Courtney Barnett’s new song “Small Talk” was released in a compilation from Mom+Pop in honor of their 10-year anniversary.

There’s something about Barnett’s voice that transports you to a comfortable couch. You kind of just want her to do an audiobook. Perhaps a gardening book? I’d buy that, whatever book she would voice.

“Small Talk” is a nice relaxing rocker that is like it’s title, a song about conversation. The song cuts into those situations when you are chatting and you’d rather not be.

“i like very much being here with you

but you see, all this small talk is killin’ me”

Great couch song.
