I had the pleasure of catching Courtney Barnett playing live twice in 2014. Her set in the evening sun of Barcelona was pretty close to perfect. It’s great news that there isn’t long to wait for her new album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit will be released by Mom+Pop records on 24th March. This is the follow up to her excellent The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas on which Courtney showed off her massive talent for crafting fun indie rock songs combined with intelligent storytelling lyrics and no shortage of wit.
New song ‘Pedestrian at Best’ sounds like it’s going to follow her familiar style although there’s definitely a harder edge to this track than in previous recordings. Check out the new video for the song above, the sense of humour certainly hasn’t disappeared. See cover artwork for the next album below.
