Courtney Barnett: Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit
Buy! - (Mom+Pop)
This Melbourne, Australia artist follows up her initial EPs with her official debut full-length, a masterful set that improves upon her promising early releases with even sharper songwriting and a more urgent and confident sound. The diverse set of songs ranges from stomping garage-rock and ‘90s-steeped grunge-pop to psych-tinged jangle-pop and bluesy, atmospheric ballads, though the focus rightfully remains on Barnett’s deadpan vocals and delightfully frank, witty and insightful lyrics balancing wry humor with a deep poignancy. 3/20/2015 - Don Yates
