MP3 of the Week: Vikesh Kapoor, "Newspress Scare"


VIKESH KAPOOR has been popping up in these pages over the past couple of years as one of the busier bodies in an auspicious young folk revival. No, wait, scratch that — “Am I a folk singer then?”, Kapoor wondered in a note to us about the title track of his new Newspress Scare seven-inch (Good People). He’d rather call it “a contemporary story song set against an Old World backdrop.” Either way, “Newspress Scare” is real pretty (and features Pretty and Nice’s J. Mendicino on Mellotron). Kapoor likes to tell a heavy story atop his feather-light folk — just what we love about this guy! Next Thursday, February 11, he’ll be joined by “a ukulele songster, a world-renowned physical comedian, and local band Mr. Sister” for a righteous seven-inch-release party at the Democracy Center in Cambridge. Get your MP3 of “Newspress Scare” below (right click/save as).
