Album pick of the week @FirstAidKitBand

Maybe I’m coming to the party late on this one but picked up a copy of this album above this week by First Aid Kit who are Stockholm-based sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg. The Lion’s Roar is their second album following on from the very successful and critically acclaimed debut LP The Big Black & The Blue last year.

They have recorded covers with Jack White of Buffy Sainte-Marie’s “Universal Soldier” and blues classic “It Hurts Me, Too.” They also spent 2011 touring with Bright Eyes and the fantastic Lykke Li, and I love the fact that their dad plays the bass on this album making it a family affair.

The sisters’ harmonies are great together and this is just one of those albums that I know I will be listening to again and again. The perfect soundtrack for my lazy Saturday afternoon.  Hopefully they’ll play in Dublin over the next few months!
