Add Date: April 27
Artist: First Aid Kit
Album: The Big Black & The Blue
Comments: Finally, First Aid Kit have an album! The duo, made up of Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Soderberg, are probably familiar to many Fleet Foxes fans who have ever searched "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" on YouTube--the duo's cover is the first result, with over a million views. Sadly, that track isn't included on the sister's debut, but the album more than delivers. It's vocal heavy folk, with some slightly instrumentation that only serves to highlight said vocals, and for good reason--their voices and harmonies are phenomenal (PHENOMENAL) and the oftentimes wistful folk they sing is a perfect fit. Try tracks 1, 2, 5, and 10.
