Happy to premiere this video for Vikesh Kapoor’s “Blue-Eyed Baby”, from his terrific debut album “The Ballad of Willy Robbins”. I don’t know much about folk music but I find there’s a honesty in his music that I don’t hear in a lot of the folk pop that’s become so popular. Really beautiful stuff.
Vikesh is headlining a tour around the UK/Ireland next month, so for those of you who live out that way, I’ve included a list of tour dates along with the video below!
Illustrators and cartoonists around the world are paying tribute to those killed in the terrible shooting that just occurred at the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. 12 people were killed by the masked gunmen, including Charlie Hebdo’s editor and publisher Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier, and three cartoonists Jean “Cabu” Cabut, Georges Wolinski, and Bernard Verlhac (known as “Tignous”).
