First Aid Kit – “The Lion’s Roar”

Ryan told me he was going to post this song, but it’s been two days now and I don’t believe his lazy ass. That’s right, I said it. I am equally super into this song and album right now, so all of you should listen to it regardless of who posts it. Plus, it’s a female Swedish folk duo composed of sisters Johanna and Klara, and you guys know how much I love Scandinavian bands.

These guys got e-famous around 2008 when they had a really popular cover of “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” by Fleet Foxes grace YouTube, but we had to wait until 2010 to get a full album. When that came out, I listened to “Ghost Town” about 8000 times, so I’m including it below in addition to the new stuff. Now, a new album, The Lion’s Roar, has been released, and it’s fantastic. Check out the title track below, and the older “Ghost Town,” which arguably is still my favorite song by them.
