Courtney Barnett - "Dead Fox" (video)

by Brice Ezell

21 April 2015

The charming Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett brings her unique brand of social commentary to the Black Cab Sessions with the tune "Dead Fox".

In his 9 out of 10 PopMatters Pick review of Courtney Barnett’s Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, Arnold Pan writes, “Barnett pretty obviously succeeds on Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit in meeting a more mainstream audience at least a little bit of the way. But for those who aren’t willing to follow… Barnett all the way as she goes on the rest of a twisting, turning path that’s uniquely her own, that’s their loss, not hers.”

Below you can watch Barnett perform the Sometimes I Sit and Think cut “Dead Fox” in the cozy environs of the Black Cab Sessions.
