“Pedestrian At Best” – Courtney Barnett

In terms of music, it’s been a slow start to the year. Some solid songs, but there has yet to be a great album. Each Tuesday I check the new releases, hoping for something exciting and amazing that I want to listen to on repeat for days. But each week I’m disappointed.

Although it is still over three weeks from its official release, Courtney Barnett’s Sometimes I Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit promises to break that drought. Which should not be a surprise; Barnett is kind of fantastic.

I would not object to a fine album or two coming out between now and March 24. But it’s good to know that something great is not too far around the corner. Who knows, it might even feel like spring by then!
