Normally, I would post something about an artist as successful as Courtney Barnett; as she clearly doesn’t need the help of some half-assed blog by a middle-aged doofus like me. But this is such a wonderful list that’d I be remiss if I didn’t make an effort to turn you on to this. She played a couple of the hits as well as some covers, including Leonard Cohen’s So Long Marianne. That one just melted me. She also brought up a favorite of mine, Marlon Williams, to cover a track called Not Only I by a band called Seeker Lover Keeper. In related news, I am now a fan of Seeker Lover Keeper. Here’s Courtney on the release.

Courtney Barnett said about her performance “I love playing to Melbourne crowds…I wanted to have a mixture of old songs, new songs and covers, and tracks that we don’t perform all the time – it’s been interesting to see the songs through a different filter, and it brings out this other emotional side to the music and the lyrics”.
