COURTNEY BARNETT Sometimes I Sit And Think And
Sometimes I Just Sit (Mom+Pop)
The first thing you notice about this album is just how LOUD it is, as it seems that after a couple of indie/folk EPs, Barnett wants to show us her rock side. Kims Caravan and lead single Pedestrian At Best mix hard rock with grunge, while Depreston with its distinct VU vibe, harks back to the EPs, but in all cases the caustic lyrics are the highlight. This is a superbly witty, profound and fun debut album.
