iTunes Review

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.”

Sometimes I like certain artist, and sometimes I love certain artist

I love Courtney Barnett, she's witty, original and a breath of fresh air. The music at times is raw, then other times is melodic and beautiful. She is the bees knees!

One song flows into the next

I am writing this immediately after listening to all the songs as soon as the full release became available. For many albums and artists, it's not a good thing to hear that it's hard to tell when one song ends and the next one starts without looking. But for Sometimes, it's a great thing. Instead of being a simple 11 song album, it manages to be an 11 movement song. I would recommend the album to those who pay attention to lyrics and hold them to be important, for the story told through the lyrics is the heart of the album. As for sound, if you liked the preview of "Depreston", the rest of the album is a go and sounds quite like that.

One Of My New Favorite Albums

I don’t hate pop. i love pop. But boy is it a breath of fresh air to hear a rock album like this come out. The songs are extremely catchy. The guitar playing is phenomenal. Courtney’s voice is very real sounding. This is a definite must-have for anyone who loves rock.

Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett first came to light in 2012 when her self-released EP, I've Got a Friend Called Emily Ferris, appeared and was roundly praised across Australia. Her conversational, deadpan delivery and garage rock-infused folk-pop style caught the attention of influential website Pitchfork, which named her song "Avant Gardener" one of its Best New Tracks during the summer of 2013. That year Barnett went on to release her second EP, How to Carve a Carrot into a Rose;...
