Liam Finn

Your favorite late-night talk show musical appearance for the next five minutes: Liam Finn on Letterman. It starts out hm'kay, and then about two-thirds of the way through it EXPLODES. [via]

Whoah! Usually Letterman sets sort of end with a whimper. Love the surprise drumming attack. Good pick!

Was that the best thing ever? Or...? OR PERHAPS NOT? It broke me a little.

You should run out and buy his album "I'll be lightning" - it's fantastic

holy shit, where can i get one of those self playing guitars??!!
(anyone else notice that?)

letterman always looks like he's thinking "damn musicians, so noisy. sigh"

It's not a self playing guitar. When he performs that song live, he uses a looping type device...records in a melody.riff... captures it, then loops it... with his FEET!
