Vikesh Kapoor: Carry Me, Home

Vikesh Kapoor

Posed to release his debut LP The Ballad of Willy Robbins next week on Mama Bird Recording Co., Portland artist Vikesh Kapoor channels the aching, melodic traditional-leaning folk of modern artists such as The Tallest Man on Earth, Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Bon Iver.

Solo acts such as these tend to have a penchant for injecting a hefty dose of emotion, and Kapoor is no exception. Album midpoint “Carry Me, Home” has a darker sound than many songs on Willy Robbins, but it maintains a fairly consistent level of emotiveness you’ll find throughout the album.

Check out the song below and look for Vikesh Kapoor’s new album next week!
