Song of the Day: Courtney Barnett, “Depreston”

I’m not particularly a fan of Barnett’s work, but I think her raw voice, eye for lyrical detail, use of rock n’roll blues may just make her a voice for this generation. The connection to the Vietnam War here, while impressionistic, is a deliberate echo make to another time of mass youth unrest.
