Depreston Courtney Barnett

 

I think this speaks to the housing affordability crisis that has artificially been created in Melbourne (and other Australian cities) by  super funds speculating in real estate.

So enters Courtney Barnett to explain the situation with her unique style of silver tone guitar,  incisive half sung/half spoken word lyrics. Then something really strikes you about this young woman, she actually seems authentic, apparently no make up, jeans and t shirt sensibility. She is almost a reaction to utterly plasticized corporate controlled music and pop culture of the last three decades.

But I guess you would have to be authentic to say, “Hey buying a house is going to be a hell of a struggle in Melbourne right now” rather than the oh so standard response of people just grinning and bearing it to keep up appearances. Thanks for singing about something that really resonates with a lot of people.

Courtney Barnett: More likely to meet Christopher Walken, than put a down payment on a flat in Brunswick.
