First Aid Kit’s Carefully Crafted album ‘The Lions Roar’

In a world where dub-step is considered a valid type of music, many music fans wonder when true music will come back with instruments and no laptops. Enter Johanna and Klara Söderberg two Swedish sisters, which form the group First Aid Kit. The album’s title is ‘The Lions Roar’ (Wichita) and boy does this album show a great deal of musician ship. Each song is carefully crafted and the fibers of each song carefully come together to create a tapestry of sound.

Starting with the title tracks soaring melodies and harmonies along with carefully placed instruments the album is already a delight to listen to. Halfway through the album you encounter ‘This Old Routine’ which is a beautifully strummed up-tempo ballad with many instruments layered beneath. One of my favorite tracks is ‘Dance to Another Tune’ which is a slow moving song with beautifully constructed melodies and harmonies. The most interesting track on the album is it’s closer ‘King of the World.’ which has a very upbeat interesting sound and a guest spot by Bright Eyes singer Conor Oberst.

 You won’t find a broader mix of styles anywhere in the music industry as on ‘The Lions Roar’.  You will also not find a record as beautifully composed as this, so go buy this and give it a listen. You will not be disappointed.
