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.

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.
