Description

What did you think of this album? .

Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit is the debut studio album by Australian indie rock musician Courtney Barnett, released on 20 March 2015. The album received wide acclaim and was ranked as one of the best albums of 2015 by numerous publications. After playing with various bands in Melbourne, Barnett used money that she had borrowed from her grandmother to start her own Milk Records label and released her first EP, I've Got a Friend Called Emily Ferris (2012).

Courtney Barnett started Milk! Records in 2012 to release her first EP I've Got A Friend Called Emily Ferris. Soon after came the second EP How To Carve A Carrot Into A Rose. She took her band overseas with a condensed back catalogue called The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas. In 2015 Barnett released album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit to worldwide critical acclaim.

On Sometimes I Sit, Barnett is able to find a balance between giving open rein to free associating any and all mundanely personal details that come to mind and striking a bright pop tone that compacts and condenses the more meandering trips collected on 2013’s The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas. It doesn't excite with sonic innovation and lyrical reinvention, it excites by just sounding really, really, really good, and coming from a voice that, in more ways than one, we've never quite heard before. And that in itself should make it one of the most thrilling albums you hear this year.

The third track on Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit is a narrative finding Barnett stuck awake in New York. It almost reads like a stream of consciousness; she’s so overwrought with thinking about her lover (likely her girlfriend Jen Cloher) that she goes on a huge ramble about an assortment of various randomness. This includes but isn’t limited to the following: palmistry, types of kitchens, and drinking smoothies. Of course, Barnett isn’t the only artist to wonder about life in New York. An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in New York)" Track Info.

Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). An Illustration Of Loneliness (Sleepless In New York).

Courtney Barnett’s first proper debut album is the new thin wild mercury music. It is a truth universally acknowledged that every great album starts with a great track. Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited kicks off with Like a Rolling Stone, Michael Jackson’s Thriller begins with Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’, The Pixies Surfer Rosa belts it out with Bone Machine. The list goes on. I’m sure you have your own examples. But if you listen to a lot of music- and I’m sure that you do- then you’ll get my drift.

Album · 2015 · 11 Songs. 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 Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit Courtney Barnett.

If Courtney Barnett is slacker rock, it's pulled its socks up since the 90. Both An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in NY) and Debbie Downer sound Barnett-by-numbers – but it says a fair amount about how far she’s come that her music can be talked about in those terms. And, once again, it doesn’t seem to matter after repeated listens. This entire album is a grower. Far more immediate is the wonderful second single, Depreston, written about the rising house prices in the north Melbourne suburb of Preston (where the album was also recorded)

My copy has "Made in U.S.A" on the cover, but the translucent orange vinyl has "MPO" etched in the deadwax, indicating the vinyl was actually pressed in France.
Aria Aria
I received the slipmat preordered from bullmoose.
KiddenDan KiddenDan
The slipmat is presumably only included in the version meant for indie record stores, which is where I got mine. But I have a different barcode: 8 5827502241 4
Chi Chi
I have the same barcode as you do : 8 5827502241 4Ordered from Bull Moose, it came with the slipmat and is on translucent orange vinyl
Manemanu Manemanu
Received the orange variant as an Amazon preorder. No slipmat.
HyderCraft HyderCraft
I believe there was also a translucent orange edition available via mailorder from Barnett's website. Mine came with a promotional tote bag as opposed to a slipmat.

Styx-n-Stones What barcode does the version from her website have? 858275022117
Mardin Mardin
What barcode does the version from her website have?

Yup! Just got mine and it's translucent orange. Tote and all.
Lavivan Lavivan
I ordered from her website and received the single translucent orange LP version and tote bag.
Yozshunris Yozshunris
Yes. Mine came today with tote bag and translucent vinyl. Great album BTW.
Runemane Runemane
I think the standard release listing here that states black vinyl should be changed to translucent orange.
Ventelone Ventelone
Or it's possible that all of the first pressing is translucent orange.
