Courtney Barnett Performs Dead Fox For Conan #Video

Melbourne’s Courtney Barnett gave Conan O’Brien a good dose of Australian culture on Monday (June 1, 2015).

Courtney is back in America this week and spent Monday performing for the musically discerning folk of the USA via the Conan O’Brien show.

Conan is the true music fan of America’s late night talk-shows and picks his guests based on quality, not celebrity.

Courtney Barnett released her debut album ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit’ worldwide in March this year and is in the unusual position of performing new music all over the world as an emerging artist for everyone at the same time.

‘Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit’ was released in the USA and UK at the same time as Australia.

Even in her hometown Melbourne, Courtney has led an indie career, choosing to release via her own label ‘Milk’ and spending equal time between her own vocation and the business end of her label.

Suggestions by one Australian media organisation and repeated parrot-fashion by US music site Stereogum without independently researching the facts that Courtney was more of a (and they used the c word) “celebrity” in the USA than in Australia are ludicrous. Courtney Barnett is not a “celebrity” anywhere and is appreciated musically in Australia for her songs, not her name.

Courtney Barnett articulates the Australian lifestyle in her lyrics and if you had to compare her to anyone else then lyrically it would have to be Lou Reed. How Lou described New York, Courtney can give a description in music of Australia.
