Black Dog - An Arlo Parks cover

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:
