Courtney Barnett has shared a live version of “Charity” from her album Tell Me How You Really Feel and her cover of Elyse Weinberg’s “Houses.” Recorded during a Spotify Singles Session in New York, the two tracks breaths out Courtney’s breezy swagger:

In regards to her cover choice, Courtney shared, “I first heard of Elyse Weinberg while on tour with a night off. My friend Janet Weiss (of Sleater Kinney and many other bands) invited me to her house for a home-cooked meal. Late in the evening Janet pulled out a record titled Elyse. The artwork reminded me of Joni Mitchell’s Ladies Of the Canyon. I fell in love with this mysterious artist and in particular her song ‘Houses.’ Rumour has it that Neil Young is playing the lead guitar line. I flipped the record over but couldn’t find his name in the credits. Elyse Weinberg once said of her life in music that ‘the plan is to remember who I really am.’ I liked that.”
