COURTNEY BARNETT - Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit LP
The centerpiece of this album is hands down Barnett's unique singing style. It is lazy. It is deadpan. In her own words, it sounds "effortless". And yet at the same time, those seemingly carefree vocal performances tie with her incredible guitar playing and her band's accompaniment to its fullest extent. We don't know how she does it, but she manages to pull off this combination of both high energy instrumentation and low energy voice delivery.
