Courtney Barnett / Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit LP
Following on from her three outstanding EPs, 'Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit!' was recorded in the autumn of 2014 in an intense 10 day session at Head Gap Studio in Melbourne, and contains the excellent first single, "Pedestrian At Best."
The album finally brings Barnett's pithily acute and stingingly incisive vision into stark, unflinching focus, her wit sharpened to a knife-edge, her melodies more infectious and addictive than ever.
Following up from the critically lauded 'The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas' in 2013 (which, as the title suggests, collected her first two self-released EPs to beguiling effect), her debut LP solidifies Barnett's standing as one of the most distinctive voices in indie rock, mixing witty, often hilarious observations with devastating self-assessment over a beguiling collection of songs that reveals her as an ambitious songwriter with an ear for clever turns of phrase and an eye for story-song details that are literate without being pretentious.
