“Fare thee well, oh honey.”

“Down By The River” by Vikesh Kapoor | I somewhat missed the deadline on this, as this dropped last Friday (and on limited translucent blue flexi disc, if that’s you thing) but, well, songs like this don’t really do well kept behind a deadline. That’s me justifying writing about Vikesh Kapoor’s new single half a week later than I should have. Four years after the release of his debut album The Ballad of Willy Robbins, he settles down with this plaintive yet striking little thing – apparently about a Ukranian girl he met by the, well, river back in Pennsylvania, where he came from – one that you better just allow to soak you all the way through. This is a thing of beauty. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
