Girlpuppy Covers Joni Mitchell

Every so often there's a song that gets covered repeatedly, seemingly out of nowhere. This year that song could be Joni Micthell's "River." Last week we brought you Margo Price's faithful solo piano cover, and this week sees a cover from Atlanta's Girlpuppy. Girlpuppy's version is also quite faithful, but in a more dreamy kind of way. It's a gorgeous take on a classic Christmas folk song, updated for today. This new version isn't exactly folk, and it certainly isn't pop, or rock. It combines all three genres without truly being either one. It's well worth your time to check this out.

You can listen to Girlpuppy's version of "River" below. You can download a copy via Bandcamp. For more on Girlpuppy, check out the artist's Twitter and Facebook.
