Already garlanded by critics as one of the standout releases of the year, Things Take Time, Take Time, the third studio album by Courtney Barnett, signals an exciting new chapter for the indie rock superstar, consolidating her place in the storied lineage of influential singer-songwriters, even as it polishes and refines her knack for a killer melody and unique turn of phrase like never before.
At the heart of Things Take Time, Take Time, is a love song — one of Courtney’s first. “If I Don’t Hear From You Tonight” is effervescently, unabashedly, cheekily love-drunk, soaring and remarkably high-stakes in comparison to the rest of the record: “If loving you’s a crime, then gimme those front page headlines,” Courtney sings, aware of the cliche and crushing too hard to care.
