First Aid Kit



I serendipitously found this little duo on youtube a few weeks ago.  At first I tought they were just a couple of ragga-muffin sisters doing a sing-a-long to post on youtube.  But it turns out these ladies are legit and actually really good.  They go by the name First Aid Kit.  Their sound is folksy, which I only like if done with a certain quirk and charm...which they definitely have.  Anyway, check the out.  You can even download their stuff on itunes.  In addition to this song I also really like Our Own Pretty Ways.

  2. Fun! We're always on the lookout for new music. I saw you had a Bon Iver song listed on your blog. He's great!

  3. Oh, I have a serious crush on these girls. I can't remember how I found them but their cover of Tiger Mountain Peasant Song gets stuck in my head all the time, like 2 years after first hearing it. Love them

  4. Terese--I can totally see you liking these guys.

    Rachel--I love Bon Iver. Did you know he played in Cincinnati a couple months ago...still kicking myself for not going.

    Beth--That's exactly how I found them--their Fleet Foxes cover...so funny.
