Good gracious me, I do love some alternative country. If my MP3 copy of Farewell Transmission had the same lifespan as that of a vinyl record, I’d have etched a hole straight through the darn thing by now, on account of how many times it’s been replayed. As such, it’s always a joy to hear more amazing alternative country that I can add to my collection.
Introducing First Aid Kit, a Swedish folk/pop duo, who (at least, in this song) sound a bit like Neko Case. That is certifiably a darn good thing, so I’ll certainly be perusing their back catalogue for any more gold. For now, enjoy My Silver Lining, which will be available on their new album, Stay Gold, due out next month.
