KURT VILE: We ran into each other on the road in various continents and talked about the recordings. I guess it wasn’t till i had another tour booked for the following summer in Australia that we thought we should record as much as we can, no major goal to make it a full length but it came together that way because the vibe was so strong. I love working with Courtney, the collaboration was laid back with less pressure. COURTNEY BARNETT: Now we finished the album, we dreamt up an amazing band which we’ve called THE SEA LICE (inspired by a Stella Mozgawa beach-side-story) and me n Kurt will be standing there out front with our guitars singing songs together. Songs from this album we did, a handful of our own songs from previous albums, maybe some old folk songs n what not. Harmonies and guitarmonies galore. Very collaborative. Lotta Sea Lice is the result of 8 days in the studio spread over almost 15 months when Courtney and Kurt’s respective touring schedules allowed for them to be in the same place at the same time.

Together this is just a wonderful pleasant album. Their voices work well together. Their guitar playing is just like their lyrics, seems so simple and is so hard to do right. Vile is a far better guitar player, and the better runs are clearly done by him.
The whole album is just about being friends. How you can have a long distance friendship. That the world is a smaller place and at the same time so different. If you've seen and listened to their pre-release video, the rest of the album is very much along those lines. Both have such unique voices. Both are recluses that manage to get up on stage and perform their music.
This has to be one of the best side projects. I can only think of one better, Middle Brother - Dawes, Deer Tick, and Delta Spirit (Goldsmith, McCauley, and Vasquez).
The album comes with a download code (acceptable 320kps MP3, no other choices). This is one very cool vinyl album - the front folds open to reveal a ton of pictures of the two with handwritten captions. The album slides out of the top. The heavy vinyl is well pressed and centered. Yeah I probably should have purchased the limited release from Australia in yellow vinyl. I'm a sucker for limited releases.
Even after a single listen I got a couple songs stuck in my head. If you are a fan, you'll enjoy it! If you are not a fan, you might become one ;)
