Courtney Barnett – Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party
Courtney Barnett is a brilliant indie-rocker that has appeared here many times in the past. In March 2015, she released her first full-length long-player, Sometimes I sit and think, and Sometimes I just sit, after several equally dazzling EP and single releases going back to 2012. We have highlighted all of those releases along the way. Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party is just one more example of the delightful rock that comes from the mind of Courtney.
In 2015, we received the (surprising to some) announcement that Ms. Barnett had been nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Artist field-a category often linked with mind-numbing pop fluff-thankfully not what Courtney’s music is about. There is no better nominee! Courtney is by far the most original act out there and has been for several years. Here is Vodka’s representation of Courtney Barnett’s music going back to late 2012:
History Eraser – Best of Vodka 2012 list
Scotty Says – Best of Vodka 2013 list
Everybody Moves – Courtney Barnett & Dave Faulkner cover of Died Pretty’s song.

In less than a month, we will find out if the Grammy board was smart or if their brains were fried in ovens. Here at Vodka, we are cheering for CB!
