unnamed

Courtney Barnett’s debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit has been certified with ARIA Gold Sales in Australia.

This follows on from news earlier this month that she had been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Of the nomination Barnett says:

“It’s an honour to be recognised amongst so many great artists on such a huge scale and it’s well beyond anything I ever imagined would happen off the back of my first album. It’s also really cool to see fellow Australians Tame Impala and Hiatus Kaiyote nominated too!”

Barnett is now preparing for a massive summer of touring in Australia which will see her play festival appearances at Woodford Folk Festival, Falls Festival, Southbound, Sugar Mountain & Twilight at Taronga.

There are just a handful of tickets left for her Perth & Melbourne headline shows, with Sydney already sold out. Details here

After playing to a packed crowd at Meredith Music Festival over the weekend, Jess Ribeiro has today premiered the Mikey Young remix of ‘Hurry Back To Love’ via THUMP.

Mikey describes the track: “I met Jess. She was super funny and off kilter. She said do a remix for me and make me sound like Donna Summer. So after trying to turn her into a bunch of Steve Reich tape loops for a day, I gave in and had a crack at unashamedly ripping on Moroder and Patrick Cowley as hard as I possibly could and coming up short of course but not tooooo short”
