Courtney Barnett -- How to Boil an Egg

“How to Boil an Egg” by Courtney Barnett

While we anxiously await the first sounds from her recently-announced collaborative album with Kurt Vile, here is a new-ish single from Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett — released last month — that would have felt right at home on her brilliant 2015 album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. This is probably because “How to Boil an Egg” isn’t a new song per se — it was a staple of open mic setlists earlier in Barnett’s career.
