Good to jam for: Folk pleasure
Attention jammers: If you've been in desperate need of a folk fix, I am certain that the newest release from the First Aid Kit will go above and beyond any first aid kit in which you are accustomed, offering you more healing than the typical Band-Aid and Neosporin medley can provide. (But please listen with caution)
I am not sure how they have done it, but I believe the two Swedish sisters, Johanna and Klara Söderberg, have completely engulfed me under their magical spell. It's not often when you come across such raw and captivating folk such as this. Nor frequent, do you come across their also raw and captivating beauty. While the musical backdrop will hardly have you asking for more, the real pleasure of their most recent album, The Lion's Roar, reaches its greatest height when the two voices join together in harmony. Just released to us in mid-January, their new album provides us with forty-three minutes of folkful indulgence and comfort at ease, as the whole album can be heard without the inkling to skip a beat.
While the two sisters are only now at the ages of 19 and 22, they first came to the surface after their overwhelming spread of their Fleet Foxes cover of the popular "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" on YouTube back in 2008. More recently, the Söderberg sisters produced a fantastic cover of the original Fever Ray song, "When I Grow Up", which is offered for your listening pleasure down below. Enjoy.
