Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile :: Lotta Sea Lice

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

On Lotta Sea Lice, their debut album of duets, Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile sound relaxed and unfussy. This is no overthought (or overwrought) “supergroup” type outing; it’s simply two pals, comfortable in their friendship and respective sonic identities, getting together to kick out some tunes, mutually.
