When Courtney Barnett combined her previously released Australian EPs into A Sea of Split Peas in 2013 and put them out in the U.S., we fell in love. She's an amazing writer, with wordplay that manages to capture the stream of consciousness of the everyday without becoming overly clever.

Her debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit will be released Tuesday. We'll hear Barnett and her band play live in Melbourne, Australia and we'll talk about the new songs.
