March 23rd will see the much-anticipated release of the debut LP proper from Courtney Barnett, “Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit”. Recorded in the autumn of 2014 in an intense 10 day session at Head Gap studios in Melbourne, 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), “Sometimes…” cements Barnett’s standing as one of the most distinctive voices in indie rock today.
