Lotta Sea Lice is a collaborative studio album between Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, released on October 13, 2017, on Matador, Marathon Artists and Milk! Records. Barnett and Vile announced that they had jammed together and decided to go on a mutual tour on June 7, 2017. They announced the release date and lead single "Over Everything" on August 30.

Lotta Sea Lice was conceived by Courtney and Kurt during their meetings along the festival circuit. The album includes four cover songs; Courtney covering Kurt’s Peepin' Tomboy, Kurt covering Courtney’s Out Of The Woodwork, both covering Courtney’s wife Jen’s Fear Is Like A Forest and Belly’s Untogether from their 1993 album Star

My thoughts on Kurt Vile have changed over the years, and here with Courtney Barnett, I suddenly came face to face with what’s been eluding me for so long. There was a time when I considered Kurt Vile to be part of the laid-back neo-psychedelic movement, primarily from his work with Adam Granduciel of War On Drugs, but now it’s clear that Kurt Vile has developed a genre all his own, or perhaps an extension of several, because what the two of these casually thoughtful artists have given us.

Instead, Lotta Sea Lice, Barnett and Vile’s first collaborative album together, makes for a remarkably sublime pairing that brings out the best in each artist, an unexpected gem that sits near the top of either’s discography. The way Barnett and Vile lock into grooves, trading barbs and asides in deadpan tones, and dueling with seemingly effortless yet entrancing guitar riffs makes for a delightful endeavor that plays to both artists’ strengths. Written and recorded in a couple week-long spurts over a two-year span in Melbourne, the album’s origin is one of mutual fans finding common ground

Weezer - Weezer (Black Album) (2019). Mark Morton - Anesthetic (2019). American Football - American Football (LP3) (2019). While She Sleeps - SO WHAT? (2019). Kehlani - While We Wait (2019). Badflower - OK, I'm Sick (2019). Posted October 12, 2017.

All of these elements are in play on Lotta Sea Lice, a rambling nine-song affair that finds the duo singing each other's songs, playing tunes penned by friends, and covering Belly's "Untogether," an underappreciated '90s cult classic that the band once played as a duet with Radiohead's Thom Yorke. Barnett and Vile do not bring to mind Yorke and Tanya Donelly, nor do they sound a thing like the original Kurt and Courtney of Nirvana and Hole fame.

The collaborative LP from Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett feels like an overheard discussion between two existential misfits. They sing songs about writing songs, covering each other in the process. Their debut collaboration, Lotta Sea Lice, thus feels less like a collection of traditional duets than an overheard discussion between two misfits who just met at an Existentialists Anonymous meeting. Unlike most he-said/she-said pairings, there’s no romantic role-play here, no cheeky entendres, no faux-frisson milked for dramatic tension, no song that’s ever going to replace Islands in the Stream or Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around on hipster karaoke-bar playlists.

Since there are a few comments here on the pressing quality: my copy is quiet, flat, and a joy to listen to.
Mr_Mole
Did every LP get pressed in Optimal Media GmbH? Looking for the best pressing :)

My thoughts on Kurt Vile have changed over the years, and here with Courtney Barnett, I suddenly came face to face with what’s been eluding me for so long. There was a time when I considered Kurt Vile to be part of the laid-back neo-psychedelic movement, primarily from his work with Adam Granduciel of War On Drugs, but now it’s clear that Kurt Vile has developed a genre all his own, or perhaps an extension of several, because what the two of these casually thoughtful artists have given us is a new take on folk rock, except rather than being about the lyrics, as with say Simon & Garfunkel or The Byrds, is a records filled with effortless relaxation and a supernatural atmosphere that ebbs gently from your speakers, fills the room, and then lingers.On first listen Lotta Sea Lice comes off as unambitious, yet on second and deeper listens there’s not a single thing that’s accidental as these two trade and exchange vocals, harmonies and lyrics that come across as conversations we hear from an open window, unable to capture the genesis, but certainly all of the flavor and nuances. With this in mind, it becomes self evident that there is no linear movement to these tracks, the songs meander along well traveled paths, though in a haphazard direction … like dancing across a stream on unsteady stones, impossible not to get wet, and not raise a rolling eyed smile. Other than that, I’d say that this album comes across like street magic, like slight of hand, filled with misdirection, some awkwardness, yet is so sentimental that it’s charmingly easy to love as Kurt and Courtney create near mirror images of each other, sounding aesthetically loose, yet meticulous and detail oriented, where counter melodies and guitar phrasing loop back onto themselves like a plume of smoke rising within a plume of smoke.Once upon a time, Spacemen 3 wrote an album while taking drugs to make music to take drugs to, with much the same attitude Lotta Sea Lice lingers for the sake of allowing you to linger, coursing toward some sort of inner peace, where they stand against all of the indignations of the modern world in true hippie fashion with pure hearts and gentle vibes. All of that being said, this is an album of duets, yet to that end, these songs are not directed toward each other, there’s not internal drama, no romantic role playing, just a casual conversation that could certainly exist between two artists doing a bit of lightweight jamming on the front porch singing and writing about what gets them through the day, motivated, and aspirations real and otherwise.If anything, this album was designed to allow Kurt and Courtney to not only finish each others sentences, but to finish each others thoughts, where the two become one, where the sum of the parts actually creates a single individual, and in so doing, comes across more expansive, thoughtful, and alluring.*** The Fun Facts: Sea Lice, also known as Beach Lice, cause Sunbather's Eruption, and are the larvae of Thimble Jellyfish. They are tiny specks, no smaller than a grain of pepper, and are almost invisible. They tend to show up in cycles around the world in warmer waters during the summer months and are becoming ever more prevalent.Review by Jenell KeslerWARNING: Having had 2 new copies of this 'black' vinyl, I can say that it's the worst pressed I've ever seen or heard. I've no idea why or what the issues are. The only solution I can see is to purchase a pre-owned copy where the seller can vouch for its quality.
Zeks Horde
Yes. The Yellow variant sounds brill and quiet. I'd recommend it.
Eta
very happy to see im not going crazy with this crackle on the pressing.. you werent lying, worst pressing i have for sure. shame, was one of my favorite albums of last year. any chance youve (or anyone reading this) heard one of the ltd versions to see if they are any better?
Lahorns Gods
The mastering is great, so the music sounds fine. But the quality of the actual record kinda sucks. Noisy and i had to ream out the center hole so it would fit the spindle. It would be cool if maybe they gave you the option to get a well made record for like $5 more or something.
Quphagie
I've got the black vinyl, this pressing is super quiet. Aside from a chip on the edge, I'm happy with it.
