Courtney Barnett’s contribution adds more cowbell and tears through “Turning Green” on Seth Meyers: Watch appeared first on Consequence.
Courtney Barnett was the musical guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday September 19th and she delivered a rousing rendition of “Turning Green” from her 2021 album, Things take time, take your time.
Barnett brought more cowbelling to the performance, largely letting her guitar dangle from her shoulder as she kept time as the song’s groove unfolded. The final verse was cloaked in a lyrical “let go” of “ideas,” but that’s when the Aussie singer-songwriter came into full bloom with a sweeping guitar solo that lasted nearly two minutes. It began with a sinuous, hypnotic melody, slowly pulverizing the guitar into screeches of chaotic and cathartic distortion. Watch the performance below.
“Turning Green” is the latest track from Barnett’s late 2021 album. She performed “Write a List of Things to Look Forward to Look.” ellen in November of last year and continued playing “Before You Gotta Go”. colbert this July. Her last appearance on late night was back in 2018 when she sparked “Crippling Self-Doubt and a General Missing of Confidence.” tell me how you really feel.
Although her national Here and There festival has now ended, Barnett has released the compilation Here and there: B-sides, live tracks + demos, which features artists from the touring show like Sleater-Kinney, Julia Jacklin and more. Proceeds from the project and the limited edition cassette will benefit the National Network of Abortion Funds and Advocates for Youth.
