Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 4F de Télérama
A true wet dream for the fans of 2010s Anglo-Saxon indie rock: Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile joined together on a disc! Recorded at the Newmarket Studio in Melbourne, Australia, and produced by Callum John Barter, their album Lotta Sea Lice exudes both sincere complicity and mutual respect. The Australian and the American have in common their fascination for the Golden Age of a certain rock ’n’ roll classical style - think Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed, Kurt Cobain… It’s these values that they put through the mill of their time and tackle in a lo-fi and simple (but not simplistic) way. That doesn’t prevent the two long-haired singers to be first and foremost true songwriters. Two solid wordsmiths full of originality, self-deprecation and even caustic humor. Courtney has fun covering Kurt (Peeping Tomboy). And Kurt has fun covering Courtney (Out Of The Woodwork). Belly’s Untogether and Jen Cloher’s—Courtney Barnett’s life companion—Fear Is Like A Forest, are two other covers present on this unassuming disc which reveals itself to be one of the most convincing rock attempts of its time.
