Three Packs A Day - Courtney Barnett

from the single Three Packs A Day (2016)

I am simply mad about Courtney Barnett.

I find her loose, jangling vibe and verbal gymnastics to be the most satisfying sound for my sunburnt soul.

I just stumbled across the song Three Packs A Day, a single she released back in mid-January.  I was planning to blog about her cover of the Grateful Dead's New Speedway Boogie, but I'm so smitten with this song that I just have to write about it.

Cleverly, Three Packs A Day is not about cigarettes, but ramen noodles instead.  She is "down to three packs a day," I wonder how bad a habit she actually had.

Musically, the bass groove and harmonica solo stand out.

This is a happy song for a hump day.  Eat ramen.
