Courtney Barnett narrates an asthma attack. This scary incident was worth sharing because it hit the charts. True events live-to-tell are the best. Those who have experienced difficulty breathing can relate to the incapacitated state and find it hilarious. What makes Barnett so likable is that she sings about usual life dilemmas and incidents in an as-good-as-it-gets drift. The funniest people are the ones who are honest. She fits the bill. People can easily identify with the subjects she casually injected into her performance.
Everyone has a story and Barnett told hers with her signature laid-back sound and lazily husky vocals. She rocks out about searching for a place to live, peoples’ accents, drunken hazes, conversations with people who care but don’t how to support her and everything else that paints her life. For those who perceive themselves as ordinary, it is an anthem of sort; you are unique and have a place in the world.
