Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit (2LP)
This product is currently sold out.
Listening to, what is, Courtney Barnetts's first album proper, is a richly rewarding experience and one that increases with each listen.
Her music and style has a knack for making her vivid flights of imagination and meticulous attention to seemingly insignificant detail seem effortless. Her wit, cynicism, observations and (deliberate) cringe-worthy puns, coupled with the sonics which are clearly rooted in grunge, are reminiscent of an amalgam of Go-Betweens, Paul Kelly and The Lemonheads.
Furthermore, this is not a solo record by any stretch of the imagination. Although there is a tendency to follow Courtney's lyrical flow, the band are superb in their arrangement and timing, backing her appropriately throughout.
