EDITORS’ NOTES

It's no stretch to say that Aussie singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett has a remarkably captivating point of view. Her debut LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, had us addicted from our first listen. A stunning lyricist who paints piercingly vivid sketches of small moments, Barnett sings in a tough, deadpan voice somewhere between Liz Phair’s and Joan Jett’s. With their earworm melodies and crisp production, Barnett’s songs are riveting—from character-driven opener “Elevator Operator” to gorgeously swaying centerpiece “Small Poppies”.
