I can’t possibly say enough good things about Courtney Barnett and her incredible 2015 debut album, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. I listened to that album repeatedly that summer. It was easily my favorite release of 2015. Barnett was rightfully recognized with a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, which she predictably lost to sugarcoated hit maker, Meghan Trainor.
For fans of Courtney Barnett, it’s been a bit of a drought since then. It is rumored that we will see her second album later this year, but no details have been announced.
Filling the void, Barnett is releasing a new song as part of the Split Singles Club series of 7” singles. If you, like me, are not riding the vinyl bandwagon, fear not! You can stream the new song, “How To Boil An Egg,” right here!
If Courtney Barnett is new to you, please, Please, PLEASE check out Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Here’s a couple songs to get you started. Then, go buy the album! You will thank me!
