My Silver Lining
FIRST AID KIT Stay Gold (Columbia)
The Söderberg sisters third album is another fine collection of alt-country/folk songs. As ever, the harmonies are spot on, and if the lyrics sound a tad world-weary for a couple of twenty-something Swedes, then the glorious music soon distracts you. The songs have been given a radio-friendly sheen, and with a bit of luck this album could finally get the band the mainstream audience that they deserve.
