MID-WEEK MUSIC MOMENT: FIRST AID KIT


{ I'll be your Emmylou, and I'll be your June
If you'll be my Graham and my Johnny, too }

This week's music pick has a bit of a country twang, which is unusual for me, I know. However, as a girl who grew up spending summers and holidays in Idaho, can you blame me for needing a little slide guitar every now and then? Today's track, "Emmylou" is by a female duo called First Aid Kit, and they definitely have a bit of a modern country feel. I just recently came across their music, but they've been around since about 2010.

Truthfully, I think a lot of First Aid Kit's songs sound the same, but they have that faraway, folksy storytelling vibe like Lord Huron and Fleet Foxes with a feminine, country twist. Perhaps what might have happened if Haim was from Nashville, not California.

Check out the song below, and listen to more of First Aid Kit on Spotify. (I'd recommend "My Silver Lining" which is much newer than "Emmylou," which is from 2012.)
