Swedish sister duo, First Aid Kit, sound to me like the perfect blend of Fleet Foxes and Bat for Lashes. I’ve only vaguely followed their musical career thus far. First obsessing over their brilliant cover of “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” off their debut Drunken Trees. Then the single “Hard Believer” off of their sophomore effort The Big Black And The Blue. And I guess this go around it will be the lovely and infectious alt-country single “Emmylou” from their most recent release, The Lion’s Roar. Sadly enough I have never taken the time to listen to any of their albums in their entirety. But after listening to this fantastic song that pays tribute to the great duos of Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons & June Carter and Johnny Cash, I think that will have change. Check out the video for “Emmylou” below.
