EDITORS’ NOTES

In a digital, DIY world that breeds more new artists than ever before, sometimes it takes a genuinely captivating point of view to really stand out. Such is the case with Aussie singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett, whose debut LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, had us addicted from our first listen. It also helped Barnett earn a place among our 2015 New Artist Spotlight. A stunning lyricist who paints piercingly vivid sketches of small moments, Barnett sings in a blunt, deadpan voice somewhere between Liz Phair and Joan Jett. With their earworm melodies and crisp production, Barnett’s songs are riveting—from character-driven opener “Elevator Operator” to gorgeously swaying centerpiece “Small Poppies.”
