Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile are the cute stoner couple who swear they’re just friends (and don’t even smoke down) and it’s totally true but I still want to believe the better story. To the joy of everyone who loves them both, they announced an upcoming collaboration called Lotta Sea Lice, due October 13 on Matador. If the lead-off single is any indication of the rest of the album then this fall is looking up.

YouTube: Courtney Barnett – “Elevator Operator”
She’s the best. More than a year after the release of Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit Courtney Barnett releases a star-studded video for “Elevator Operator.” Glad to see she’s doing well enough to invest in a high production video.
I’m too much of an old square to recognize very many of the cameos in this but I caught Sleater Kinney and Jeff Tweedy. How many do you know?

Hopefully she tours a lot for this album because I’d love to see her in a dark club instead of in a “grove” in the middle of the day.
