Courtney Barnett has added another award to her mantle, this time the Triple J Album of the Year Award.

In accepting the award Courtney Barnett said, “I’m very excited and honoured to win this award. It’s amazing. It’s a nice feeling for something that you’re not really sure when you write, I guess, how far it’s going to reach and who is going to find it interesting.”

Triple J music man Richard Kingsmill commented, “The thing that has always impressed us about Courtney, ever since we first started playing ‘Lance Jr’ back in 2012, was her distinctiveness. The unapologetic Australian accent was part of it, but her songwriting has always been outstanding. She writes with a mix of insightful observation, stream of consciousness, humour and lots of clever word play. We think this album is special stuff and the way it’s resonated around the world this year has been fantastic for both Courtney and Australian music in general.”
