"Pedestrian At Best" from Courtney Barnett, album in March
Here in the executive dining room of WYMA headquarters the main topic of conversation is the great news that Courtney Barnett's frequent touring of late hasn't prevented her from writing new music. In fact, we are looking forward to the release of Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit (likely to be called Sometimes or SISATASIJS by most music writers) on March 24. We know what to expect: Wryly crafted observations with humor, self-awareness and probably some regret and sorrow. And our expectations are high. Our first taste comes courtesy of the video for album track "Pedestrian At Best", in which Courtney seems to make fun or her own recent fame and holds others at arms length with self-deprecation and a critical eye.
