    Default First Aid Kit

    First Aid Kit is one of my favorite of the recent slew of girl bands. They are quite excellent musicians and can put on a stirring show. I look forward to seeing them for the first time at Coachella 2012!

    It's cool they have the Jack White seal of approval, although WHite also worked with the dreadful Insane Clown Posse.

    How can you find them boring? I find Matchbox 20 boring, and slightly revolting.

    They like Fever Ray, so they're coachella board approved.



    Looking forward to this set.

    I remember seeing that Fleet Foxes cover they did a couple years back and thinking they were just another youtube sensation with no actual artistic merit. For the sake of the festival, however, I decided to check out their album that's dropping here in a week or two and I'm honestly quite in love with it. Their vocal harmonies are absolutely mesmerizing and their song writing is top-notch for a couple girls in their early 20's. This song in particular drew me more than any other. Ridiculously awesome...

    I'm liking the new album, though I'm only a couple listens in. This is my favorite song by them off their first LP.

    Thanks for the videos guys. I was worried they only did covers which meant I was going to skip them.

    Glad I saw this, I've been listening to them quite a lot since I first saw this post yesterday. My favorites so far are Hard Believer and Ghost Town. All of their songs are nice and chill, and I love the feeling that listening to their voice gives me. Can't wait to see them now!

    Yeah I've been listening to their album a bunch this week and I LOVE this song. It's so freakin sweet. I got a huge smile on my face the first time I listened to it.

    Well, they are signed to The Knife's record label.

    First album is worth checking out too, and the 2nd has just gone to No1 in Sweden.

    Seen them a few times live and they've always been captivating.

    Great vocals and songs that are simple and quite sparse yet also feel beautifully ethereal? Yup, I think I might just have to pick this one up some time soon.

    They both have incredible voices and real talent. I'm really hoping noise bleed doesn't kill the vibe.

    I suspect they'll be in a tent, mid-afternoon, so it likely won't be a worry. Excited to see them. Hope my rocker son agrees.

    Make sure to check out First Aid Kit's first release, Drunken Trees EP. It's WAY BETTER than their two full lengths. Most likely they'll play live staples Tangerine, Our Own Pretty Ways, and You're Not Coming Home Tonight during their Coachella set.

    I disagree with ^^ post. The EP is not better - the 2 full releases are both WAY better
    than the EP.

    Drunken Trees (catchy, fresh, solid lyrics) > The Lion's Roar (dig the country vibe) > Big Black & The Blue (unfocused and boring)
