A Happy Song for a Sunday Afternoon

I've been listening to this one a lot lately -- as in, three times in a row right now -- and still really like it. It's from Melbourne [1] singer-songwriter-guitarist-force of nature Courtney Barnett, and it's "Pedestrian at Best":

I found it via the Bonnaroo Mixtape 2015, which I'm happy to see is still available on NoiseTrade, either absolutely free or whatever you feel like paying for it. (There are 35 other songs there as well; surely something there will be to your taste!)

[1] Although if you listen to her sing one line of this song, you'll have figured out the "Melbourne" part already. It's an awesome, distinctive singling accent, in an idiom where a lot of folks just sound blandly mid-Atlantic when they sing.
