Courtney Barnett – Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit (2015)

 "...gimme all yr money and I'll make some origami, honey..."
Melbourne’s Courtney Barnett first grabbed people’s attention with her 2013 release The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, which introduced the world to her laconic indie-rock observations.
On her first album, she’s developed her shtick further and created a funny, acerbic but staunchly down-to-earth album. Comparisons could be drawn to Parquet Courts or even the early small-town musings of Alex Turner.Indeed, Depreston is a bit like A Certain Romance, crafting a story of Aussie inertia; while Elevator Operator paints a picture of LS Lowry-esque stick people as they meander in and out of her gaze.
