Courtney Barnett Sometimes I Just Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit REVIEW

Posted by: on Apr 12, 2015 | No Comments

The first time that I heard ‘Avant Gardner’ by Courtney Barnett, I knew that she was built for success. Fast forward 18 months, and she is releasing her debut record Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Immediately I can tell that this is going to be a big album of the year, and a few tracks will rank highly in the Hottest 100 next year.

The first Australian to perform on Jimmy Fallon, this record is because of all the hard work that she has put in over the past couple of years. ‘Pedestrian at Best’ rollicks along with reverb rocking guitar and a kickarse rhythm section, and the indie pop rock sound that she has developed over the past couple of years, is present throughout. Like ‘Avant Gardner’ the track to break her into the music world, her lyrical and poetic singing style is present throughout each of the tracks, most commonly though in ‘An Illustration of Loneliness’.

Having just played at Golden Plains and with a massive headline tour in support of this record coming up, I highly recommend you head down to your favourite music store and pick up this CD. She is a star on the rise and it is still cool enough to jump on the bandwagon at the moment. Witty lyrics, catchy pop hooks and just great songs are all present on this album. Definitely one of my favourites of the year thus far!
