Recorded in the Autumn of 2014 in an intense 10 day session at Head Gap studios in Melbourne, this album finally brings Barnett’s incisive vision into stark, unflinching focus; her wit sharpened to a knife edge, her melodies more infectious and addictive than ever.

‘Sometimes I Just Sit and Think, and Sometimes I just Sit’ cements 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. Depressing rentals and dead foxes, go-nowhere relationships and dead end suburbs, even her own fears, doubts and insecurities – nothing escapes Barnett’s caustic sense of humour.

Courtney Barnett is one of the best and most unique voices around.
