Courtney Barnett confesses here to a craving that has caused her to withdraw from friends and cancel dinner plans. However, don't be fooled by the song title; the singer's deep addiction isn't for cigarettes, but instead she yearns for a brand of instant noodles popular in Australia known as "Mi Goring."
The bluesy, hunger-inducing track is part of the Milk! Records compilation Good For You. Barnett runs the label with her partner, Adelaide singer-songwriter Jen Cloher. Milk! Records began as a way for the Australian singer to release her own music, but the pair have now accumulated an impressive roster of other artists.
Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Fraser A. Gorman supplies the harmonica solo.
