Sitting around with the puppy audience (the big sigh at 0:28 is pretty funny), I thought I'd strum a cover song.
This is from one of my favourite LPs this year, Collapsed In Sunbeams by Arlo Parks.
It's rare (for me anyway) to have a song stop me in my tracks. That happened when I first heard Black Dog on the radio earlier this year. I was completely mesmerized. As I dug deeper, I fell for the entire record of soulful beats, but this is the song that has really stuck with me.
It's heavy, yet beautiful subject matter, and I encourage you to check out her stuff if you haven't already.
Arlo Parks version:
Bonfire and sunset! This live version is so great as well:
