Song To Get Hooked On: “Emmylou”, Live at Bestival
Why We’re Psyched: First Aid Kit is the only “girl group” that seems to be riding the nu-folk wave pioneered by Fleet Foxes, Joanna Newsom, Laura Marling and Mumford and Sons, and they’re doing it really well! The sisters were discovered when they uploaded their cover of Fleet Foxes “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” on YouTube in 2008 and soon found themselves playing on stage with Fleet Foxes. Since then, they’ve released two albums filled with haunting melodies of their own creation.
