A few years ago I posted a video of two Swedish sisters singing a Fleet Foxes song (seriously, listen to those harmonies!) and now those sisters are grown up and have a band, First Aid Kit and are performing on Conan and whatnot (coincidence?--you decide!)
I got their new CD, The Lion's Roar, last week and it has been on repeat in my car ever since. It's piercingly lovely with a real strength running through it that reminds me in a way of early Dolly Parton which I also love.
If you like folk music I hope you'll love the album. Listen to more of their songs on their MySpace page.
I hope you have a lovely weekend. Two of the most wonderful men I know have birthdays today: N and my dad, so we'll be celebrating all weekend long. We're having cake and presents with the kids but I think I might be looking forward to eating without our lovely progeny at a new-to-us restaurant the most. I love spending time one-on-one with my funny N.
