Vikesh Kapoor

If folk at its best is the howl of the underdog, let this year's winner — and the three runners-up, for that matter — serve as proof of the living, breathing, and, dare we say, downright burgeoning young folk scene in Boston. Although we couldn't buh-leeeve that Spitzer Space Telescope didn't factor into the final four (seriously, go listen!), we're more than happy with Mr. Kapoor's post at the top of your ballot-ticking hearts. His "Newspress Scare" seven-inch was one of the best three or so minutes of the past year in local music. If you like tremulous neo-folk with glints of authorial gusto and oodles of heart, Kapoor might be not just good-morning music but a full-on wake-up call.

Runners-up
