Lee’s Palace Presents
Courtney Barnett
San Fermin

Welcome to the world of Courtney Barnett, a hot, hazy place where ‘suburban banalities’ and ‘mindless procrastination’ have never sounded so compelling. The 24-year-old Melbourne-based singer, guitarist and songwriter has created a candid lyrical space for her growing legions of devotees through a series of DIY releases and shows back home to snowballing acclaim, and is now taking things worldwide with her first LP collection, ‘The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas’, via House Anxiety/Marathon Artists.

Lead single ‘Avant Gardener’ is a vivid display of her magic. A hook-laden fug of country roots and discordant psychedelia with a dream-like narrative. Courtney’s refreshingly unaffected sing-speak tells the story of an anaphylaxis induced panic-attack in the midst of an Australian heatwave, “The paramedic thinks I’m clever cos I play guitar, I think she’s clever cos she stops people dying.”

San Fermin
San Fermin is the work of Brooklyn composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone. His self-titled debut album is strongly influenced by his unique background in classical music, which includes a job assisting composer/arranger Nico Muhly.

After finishing his musical studies at Yale, Ludwig-Leone wrote the album in six weeks while holed up in a studio on the mountainous border between Alberta and British Columbia. He focused on life?s top-shelf issues – youth, nostalgia, anxiety, unrequited love – and tied these vast themes to different characters through vocal contributions from longtime friend Allen Tate, as well as Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius.
