If you weren’t at SXSW last week, don’t feel so bad — we weren’t either. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of the highlights that took place in Austin over the past week. One of the artists that turned out to be one of the favorites this year was Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett, whose new album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit just happens to be our new Album of the Week. Barnett played a hard rocking set of highlights from the album at Stubb’s BBQ, at the NPR Music showcase, and NPR was nice enough to share video of the full set.
