Independent Aussie record label Milk! Records are topping off 2019 with the release of a new covers album titled Milk on Milk, with the first taste of it being courtesy of label founder Courtney Barnett.
The track, ‘Keep On’, is originally by labelmates Loose Tooth, and Barnett naturally puts her own summery haze in her rendition.
Of the band, Barnett had nothing but the highest of praise and revealed why she wanted to cover this song.
“Loose Tooth have this incredible talent for churning out the sweetest pop songs with these biting lyrics, all whilst maintaining this charming and disarming onstage banter and crowd surfing to the bar for a beer mid-song,” she said in a statement.
“The lyrics to this song are particularly powerful and nostalgic to me.”
To celebrate the release of the album and the festive season, the record label are hosting a special Christmas party on December 22. Check out those details, as well as the full album tracklist and Barnett’s cover, below.
