Video of the Moment #2136: Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett can’t put a foot wrong, can she? The Aussie lo-fi darling has a new video out for ‘Elevator Operator’, the opening track from her debut album ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit’, released last year. (You can read our review of the album back here.) In the video for the single, Ms. Barnett plays – what else? – a beleaguered elevator operator. And there are some pretty funny cameos in here to boot: Sleater-Kinney, Kath and Kim’s Magda Szubanski, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, plus legends from Down Under including The Drones, Tim Rogers and Paul Kelly. It ends with southpaw Barnett and her band performing on the top of Melbourne’s Nicholas Building. What I want to know is, how good can her playing be if she’s wearing white gloves? Watch the video for ‘Elevator Operator’ below. ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit’ is available now from Mom + Pop Records.
