"First Aid Kit is the duo of sisters Johanna (age 19) and Klara (22) Soderberg. They hail from Sweden but their sound is pure Americana. The vocal performances are truly extraordinary throughout. Conor Oberst & James Felice of The Felice Bros. join for the celebratory final track to close the album on a joyous note, handclaps and all. A warm ending to a gorgeous album." from iTunes.

'Emmylou' is the current single and most memorable track on the album, with the title track a close second. There are beautiful vocal harmonies to be found and warm, simple acoustic accompaniment but overall the form is much too similar for every song and the effect is that of listening to one long, linear song.
