The notoriously shy, Melbourne-based musician Courtney Barnett embarks on the world tour for her 2018 album Tell Me How You Really Feel. Barnett narrates her journey via an audio diary she recorded with a dictaphone, providing insight into the highs and lows of artistic life on the road.
Music documentaries were once made of big egos, outrageous riders, and turning it up to 11, but self-proclaimed singer of dejection and doubt Courtney Barnett plays it in deadpan minor key. As scrappy as her acclaimed albums, this lo-fi diary of a tour finds energy in the electric feel of the crowd.
