First Aid Kit

i thought i’d try to talk about music more regularly on here, instead of just resorting to the music mixes every month. here’s someone you need to listen to – First Aid Kit. their new album The Lion’s Roar was released a couple of weeks ago. these photos were taken by Neil Krug, a fantastic photographer whose work you also need to get into. hey, double discovery whammy! also, if you don’t know anything about First Aid Kit – Johanna and Klara are in fact Swedish and were born in the 1990’s (as a child of the eighties it always amazes me when such accomplished people are about a decade younger than myself). now listen to their music, watch their videos, and prepare to have your mind blown.

    I saw them a few months ago opening for Bright Eyes. It was magical- they’re super talented young ladies.

    loved them ever since that wondrous Fleet Foxes cover they did on youtube. the photos are magic too. Neil Krug is the man.

    Just received my vinyl copy in the post yesterday, coincidentally I’m giving it a listen right now. SO GOOD!

    I discovered First Aid Kit last week too and have listened to their song Emmylou about 60 times since then. It’s my new favorite.
