Jen Cloher

As Jen Cloher notes towards the end of tonight’s show, the vast majority of
Australian musicians never make it out of their own country; much less get to tour as much as Cloher has on the back of last year’s bruised and beautiful self-titledalbum. Cloher

The breakout success of her wife, C ourtney Barnett, who plays guitar in
the backing band tonight,

has undoubtedly been integral in bringing Cloher to international attention – when she dusts off 2009’s ‘Fear Is Like a Forest’, Cloher

she acknowledges that it was Barnett’s cover of it with Kurt Vile, on last year’s collabor ative ‘Lotta Sea Lice’ LP,

that was the first that many people had heard of it, and her.


Her songwriting, though, shines all on its own, and the truth is that
tonight’s set feels a lot more playful than the album it leans so heavily on;

intensity on record is consistently swapped out for bright and breezy guitar pop, especially on ‘Showgazers’ and ‘Great Australian
Bite’.

Moments that are relayed faithfully include the sprawling set centrepiece
‘Analysis Paralysis’, which unfurls slowly,

but for the hour or so that she’s onstage,

Cloher rattles through her back catalogue with the sort of purpose you’d expect from somebody who’s been plugging away for over a decade to be here.
