Barnett and her band blistered through a trio of tracks from the acclaimed 2018 album for the mini-concert: “Nameless, Faceless,” “City Looks Pretty” and “Need a Little Time.”
The Australian singer-songwriter performs Saturday night at Austin, Texas’ Stubb’s B-B-Q before embarking on a European leg beginning next week. Barnett had spent the month of October on the road in the U.S. to promote Tell Me How You Really Feel, the follow-up to her 2015 debut Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit and her Kurt Vile collaboration Lotta Sea Lice in 2017.
“I didn’t have a clear direction,” Barnett told Rolling Stone of her sophomore album. “I just tried to figure some things out and it kind of turned into something bigger.”
