Folk singer Vikesh Kapoor has released a video for “Bottom of the Ladder” in support of his recent debut LP The Ballad of Willy Robbins.  As a sort of overture to the record, “Bottom of the Ladder” introduces us to a narrator who is weary of the obstacles of life but, at the same time, determined to overcome them.  The shadowy black and white video shows Kapoor climbing an endless ladder, edited in a surreal, fever dream style that contrasts the song’s realist narrative.  Tickets and information for Vikesh Kapoor’s December 5th show at North Star Bar and January 31st show at World Cafe Live can be found here.
