La especialidad de estas hermanas suecas es hacer "covers" a canciones de bandas que a ellas les gustan. Fleet Foxes, Patti Smith y Fever Ray son algunas de ellas, pero uno de los que les gustó más hacer y tuvieron oportunidad de tocarlo durante su gira en 2012, fue "America" de Simon and Garfunkel, el [...]
T he art of the cover song is one all musicians have practiced at some point in their lives, some just stick with us more than others. 2012 was filled with fantastic covers, but after a very *ahem* scientific study, the ones below were last year's stand outs. In our minds and hearts anyway... 1. Heart of Mine (Bob Dylan) Blake Mills, Danielle Haim and Taylor Goldsmith | Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Click here to view the embedded [...]
Las 100 canciones del año en Planeta Pop . La manera de escuchar música ha cambiado definitivamente y como anunciaba el año pasado, ha llegado el momento en este blog de prescindir de la lista de álbumes de cada año y centrarse en las canciones, aunque lógicamente muchas de ellas formen parte de algunos de los mejores trabajos de larga duración publicados en los últimos doce meses. Otras se incluyen en Eps o han sido singles. Pese a que algún artista merecería estar representado con más de una canción, de cada disco sólo se ha elegido una. Una lista de [...]

Another year, and another top 5 gigs by bands that should not be missed live. How odd that three of them came one after another, but that's the cool thing about Washington DC. Except for December through the beginning of February (the dead of winter) and June through August (festival season), there is always a reasonably good selection of bands coming through here. But that hasn't always been the case. I am often asked on my travels why I became a music blogger, and the simple answer has always been this: when I [...]
The video for the Swedish duo First Aid Kit 's latest single " Wolf " stands at an uncanny crossroads between Where The Wild Things Go, the Blair Witch Project and Nikki and The Dove's psychedelic imagery. Their extremely folksy music which harks back to the most infamous folk classic definitely gains in potency thanks to the eye-catching trait of this video.
First Aid Kit are really starting to amek a name for themselves these days. It seems like just yesterday we wrote about them in our short lived "World Tour" segment and now they're all grown up and on their second album which has received great reviews for the duo's harmonies and folk-influenced songwriting. The new video for "Wolf" definitely has ritualistic undertones for the track that the sisters describe as "...our destruction of the planet. But it’s also about finding the animal within you. Because we know that underneath that polished, civilized exterior there is definitely [...]
'Wolf' was a bonus track off First Aid Kit 's second album 'The Lion's Roar' released back in January , and now it's getting its own proper single release. The sister describe the song like this: 'Wolf' is about our destruction of the plant. But it is also about finding the animal within you. Because we know that underneath that polished, civilized exterior there is definitely a wild creature longing to howl or roar. Click here to view the embedded video.
Las First Aid Kit presentaron a principios de este año su segundo larga duración The Lion's Roar y la verdad es que el recibimiento no pudo haber sido mejor. El grupo no sólo logró colocarse en los primeros números de los charts en todo el mundo, además lo hizo con un estilo muy propio inmerso en un sonido folk que no necesariamente es de lo más comercial. Esto, claro, no hace más que añadirle puntos a su logro. Para celebrar el éxito de la placa, el dúo de hermanas decidió editar esta semana una [...]
Con paisajes caleidoscópicos y aires místicos, las hermanas Johanna y Klara nos presentan su nuevo video. Digno de reconocimiento, “The Lion´s Roar” el segundo álbum de estudio del dueto First Aid Kit, ha sido la cuna del tremendo bonus track “Wolf”. El video fue dirigido por el sueco Johan Södeberg, (director y editor de videos), quien [...]
If you're a fan of Swedish sisters First Aid Kit and have seen more than just a couple of their videos you'll already be aware that they're big fans of striking imagery, whether it's their video for "Ghost Town" or "Blue" or anything in between. Today they take that up a level with their video for "Wolf" , which follows the tribalistic nature of the track and offers up sacrifices as they run through a kaleidoscopic forest. [...]

Volvemos a disfrutar de los vídeos de las suecas First Aid Kit, que siguen sacándole partido a su segundo disco, " The Lion's Roar ", que tan enganchados nos tiene.
First Aid Kit have shared the Johan Söderberg-directed video for Wolf , the next single from the Swedish duo's excellent sophomore record The Lion's Roar . Wolf is a bonus track on the record and is, just like the sisters say , "a little different" from the rest of the album as it's more "up-beat" (not sure if you can say that about a pop-folk song but you'll get what I say if you listen to it). The song is about the wild creature longing to howl or roar underneath [...]
Not feeling this video at all, but the song's quite good. Video directed by Johan Söderberg. Buy "Wolf" : iTunes UK | iTunes US

While performing in Paris on July 2nd, Jack White was joined by First Aid Kit for a beautiful rendition of the White Blood Cells track, " We're Going To Be Friends ." We wish these they would get together and do this as a studio version but if you've been keeping track at home, First Aid Kit did a cover of this track with Bright Eyes [below] for the Cool for School: For the Benefit of the Lunchbox Fund , charity compilation. Blunderbuss is the debut solo album by Jack White, released on [...]
