Song: Hurt (live on Jimmy Kimmel Live)
Artist: Arlo Parks
Album: Collapsed in Sunbeams
I have technically posted this video before as it was featured in my "Remember the Name Arlo Parks" blog, but I do not care! Based on views of this video and clicks on DOL, I'm not too sure my millions of loyal avoiders have checked it out, so I'm posting again.
Collapsed in Sunbeams is my favorite album of 2021 to this point. Arlo's sound is just so fucking cool. I know that's some elementary ass analysis, but it's exactly what her sound is. This bitch (in a respectful way) is just cool AF. Simple as that (s/o Kid Cudi). **gulps** Dare I even say, angelic? Listen to "Just Go" and try to say it doesn't sound like the personification of cool.
A+ set design. THIS is how you incorporate social distancing without shoving "oh yea there's a pandemic going on" down our throats. It's nice to forget that and enjoy some art for a moment or two. Hopefully she's right and it won't hurt so much forever.
