COURTNEY BARNETT SIGNS WITH REMOTE CONTROL RECORDS FOR AUSTRALIAN RELEASE OF DOUBLE EP & DEBUT ALBUM

Over the past 12 months Melbourne singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has received international acclaim for her remarkable ability to transform the most mundane events of everyday life into spellbinding, thoughtful lyrics. Courtney has quickly caught the attention of music lovers and critics the world over with Rolling Stone (USA) comparing her to “early Bob Dylan”, while NPR described Barnett as “laconic, funny and charming.”

Remote Control Records is excited to announce the signing of Courtney Barnett to its ever growing Australian roster which includes King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Teeth & Tongue, Sunbeam Sound Machine, Dirty Three, Mick Turner, Midnight Juggernauts, Miami Horror & many more.

Barnett will release her debut album later this year on her own imprint label Milk! Records backed by the team at Remote Control. More immediately her The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas will be available in store on CD format in March with a limited edition vinyl to follow.

In the USA The Double EP will be released in April on NYC-based indie powerhouse Mom + Pop, (home to revered artists like Sleigh Bells, Andrew Bird, Polica, and fellow Australians Jagwar Ma).  In the UK the album is released on Marathon and has already received a full page review in Uncut.

Courtney’s music featured strongly in 2012 end of year lists, including NME, Spin, The Music, Rolling Stone (USA), Pitchfork, Fuse and NPR.  “Avant Gardener” has already received significant play on Triple j and community radio and “History Eraser” was recently nominated for the APRA Song Of The Year.

Right now Courtney Is on a SOLD OUT tour of the UK & USA and will return to Australia in March to support Billy Brag on his National Tour. Later in 2014 Barnett will tour the UK & USA more extensively  and will make festival appearances at SasquatchPrimavera and Coachella.

TEETH & TONGUE NEW SINGLE ‘GOOD MAN’

Teeth & Tongue return with new single ‘Good Man’, the first track from their forthcoming album due for release in early 2014.

“I started humming the tune in my head while lurking around Northcote train station last year. At the time I was working on a solo show for the US, using only a drum machine and a synth, so I went home and tried to make it into a song that would stand alone without any other instruments”, says Jess Cornelius.

“I ended up sampling layers of my voice for the rhythmic part, and then triggering the vocals using a foot switch while playing it live. This set-up kind of became a prototype for a lot of the songs I have written recently.”

Watch the video for ‘Good Man’ below:

NEW ALBUM COMING IN 2014!

Teeth & Tongue is the music project of New Zealand born, Melbourne-based musician Jess Cornelius. In 2011 Teeth & Tongue released second album Tambourine though Dot Dash/Remote Control. The Age gave it four stars, The Vine called it “One of the best Australian releases this year”, and the first single ‘Unfamiliar Skirts’ earned an EG Awards nomination for song of the year.
