Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, are releasing their collaborative album, Lotta Sea Lice on October 13th – at once a peek behind the studio doors of the two artists and a celebration of their longstanding friendship.
After the of the single “Over Everything,” the video for their new single “Continental Breakfast” gently pushes the door open just a little bit further. Using intimate home footage shot over four days of Kurt and Courtney in their respective family environments surrounded by friends and relatives, “Continental Breakfast” goes beyond being a mere music video and becomes a mini documentary of sorts, capturing candid, honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both musicians.
Director Danny Cohen says:
‘Continental Breakfast’ was made while spending time with Courtney and Kurt in Melbourne and Philadelphia, it’s an intimate home movie into their lives and the time spent with family and friends between recording /touring. Shot on 16mm, the mini-documentary captures honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both Courtney and Kurt. It was such a treat to experience life with Courtney and Kurt in their natural habitats. It really left me feeling like part of the family and hopefully fans can feel that too.
Courtney and Kurt will be playing an in-store at Amoeba Hollywood (6400 Sunset Blvd.) on release eve, Thursday October 12 at 6:00pm. Fans can attend the in-store by picking up Lotta Sea Lice a day early at Amoeba Hollywood starting on Thursday October 12.
Lotta Sea Lice will be released on October 13th on Matador Records in North America, Marathon in the UK Europe and on Barnett’s own label Milk! Records in Australia. You can pre-order it here.
