WATCH: Tiny Desk: Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile

Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile have a lot to celebrate this year: Their LP Lotta Sea Lice has been featured on Best-Of lists from Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Paste, Uproxx, Noisey, among others so far, and they’ve traveled North America together with their all-star group The Sea Lice. Today NPR released Courtney & Kurt’s Tiny Desk Concert, which sees the duo leave the band behind in favor of a mirrored acoustic performance. The set features highlights from Lotta Sea Lice “Over Everything,” “Continental Breakfast,” “Blue Cheese,” and “Let It Go.” Watch the whole thing here:
