She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match. Barnett's electric live shows have seen her grace the stages of the biggest festivals of the world, playing to adoring audiences across 5 continents.2017 saw the release of the wonderful album "Lotta Sea Lice" an album of duets with Kurt Vile and a gorgeous place-holder while we awaited the release of “Tell Me How You Really Feel”.“Tell Me How You Really Feel” will be released May 18th through Barnett’s own label Milk!
