What can we say about Courtney Barnett? Well, she’s pretty much the coolest of the cool. The Aussie singer/songwriter has ruled twenty-fourteen with her latest effort, The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, and we continue to obsess over “Avant Gardner.” “History Eraser” is equally badass.

Oh yeah, and this week, her cover of The Breeders’ classic “Cannonball” (via The A.V. Club) has the interwebs in a mad chatter. Brilliant stuff!

And good news for Barnett fans! After spending much of the summer making the festival rounds at Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Pickathon, among others, Barnett and her band, The Courtney Barnetts (best name ever!), are prepping for their first-ever national tour. She’s syncing up with Brooklyn baroque pop outfit San Fermin for a co-headline jaunt, which includes an evening at Webster Hall (October 22). Check out the full list of dates below.

A dollar made from each sale will sponsor Gilda’s Club NYC (195 W. Houston), a non-profit created in the memory of Saturday Night Live alum Gilda Radner, who passed away from ovarian cancer in 1989.

We can’t conclude this post without some extra cool live footage from Miss Courtney, right? Here she is doing “Depreston,” a new tune, at Bowery Ballroom in June.
