SOTD: My Silver Lining – First Aid Kit

I have had all of my folk needs satisfied by the release of the breathtaking Stay Gold, The third LP from Swedish sister-duo First Aid Kit. They have come a long way since their cover of Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Peasant Song swept the internet back in 2008, and currently Stay Gold, titled after American poet Robert Frost’s poem Nothing Gold Can Stay, is proving to be a worthy follow up to the success of 2012’s The Lion’s Raw. The Söderberg sisters have used their youth and lethargic romanticism to create a heart-on-the-sleeve listening experience, one which is rich in trademark harmonies and intricate folk guitar.
