Rolling Stone names Courtney Barnett’s “Avant Gardener” #90 on their 100 Best Songs of 2013 and aptly describes her songwriting, “unspools matter-of-fact tales like barstool revelations.”
Watch The Preatures play for Rolling Stone here.
“For an episode of 1 Mic 1 Take, a video series of artists performing spare vocal takes of their songs inside Hollywood’s Capitol Records Tower, the Preatures went acoustic. The Australian outfit usually specializes in tight, lively rock & roll that wouldn’t be out of place between Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and the Bee Gees’ Spirits Having Flown, but their minimal rendition of “Is This How You Feel?” allows singer Isabella Manfredi to shine even more than she does on the original.”
On October 23, 2012, the world was forever changed. Rebecca Samay Rosenthal, Smith College class of 2007, passed away at her home in Newton, MA. She was 27. Becca was a prolific writer, ardent reader, and lover of books. While a student at Smith, Becca worked in the Mortimer Rare Book Room and in the Archives, focusing on the work of Sylvia Plath. At the time of her death, she was in the MLS program at Simmons College in Boston, focusing on Archival Science. Becca’s life was a daily inspiration filled with curiosity and the seemingly endless search for ‘more.’
To honor Becca’s memory, and to redirect extreme grief into something positive and productive, Amanda, Neil and other friends of Becca’s are spearheading this benefit for this fund in Becca’s name. It is for the benefit of students working in the Archives or the Rare Book Room, where Becca spent so much of her time being the hipster librarian they all knew she would one day actually become (and get paid to do).
Annual income from this fund shall be used to provide internships for students enrolled in library special collections concentrations (including but not exclusive to the Archives and Book Studies concentrations) and/or to provide general internship and research funds for student work in special collections.
