Hot on the heels of the news that Portland's Mama Bird Recording Co. has signed the bewitching Haley Heynderickx to its formidable roster, the label has put together a single release show for Vikesh Kapoor on Friday, May 19 at Beacon Sound. Kapoor's new tune “Down By The River” paints in broad strokes, with deft, primitive strums and fingerpicking etching fertile foundations for his poetic missives. It's a romantic injection of sad folk highlighted by contributions on electric guitar from Dave Depper (Death Cab for Cutie, Menomena) and bass from Faustina Masigat.
Mama Bird is releasing the single, which was recorded at Flora Recording & Playback, at the show on 7-inch flexi discs, so bring your ducats and hand them over for what's likely a limited-edition supply.
And if you can't get enough Henderickx, she'll also be performing a set! Give her a high five for her signing and buy all of her merch, too. Plus, the uber-talented Claire Puckett, another artist not to be trifled with, opens.
