Courtney Barnett - So Long Marianne

Courtney Barnett and her band's MTV Unplugged Session, recorded a few months back but just out. A lot of it does what you'd expect. Not dramatically reconstructed versions of favourites old and new.  A couple of covers. And most interestingly this. Courtney does Cohen. Such a brave thing for anyone to do, but after all she's a brave, determined artist. The rendition is almost flat and really shouldn't work but remarkably it does. I almost had tears in my ears by the time it came to an end first time I heard it.
