Why See Courtney Barnett?
A Long Way From Pedestrian
Aussie singer songwriter Courtney Barnett's astoundingly good debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit was one of the most celebrated rock albums of 2015. While Barnett's idiosyncratic style has been described as 'slacker', this way undersells her meticulous picking apart of life's little details - she makes just makes it look easy.
Among the record's many highlights were 'Depreston', in which she imagines the rich history of a For Sale bungalow, and the thwarted love story in a swimming pool that is 'Aqua Profonda'. Sometimes I Sit... was near the top of most critics Best Albums of the Year lists, and saw her nominated for Best New Artist at The Grammys.
Catch her and her band on tour when they play near you soon!
Performance date: 25 October 2018
