Episode 332: Ruins - First Aid Kit
In 2008, Klara and Johanna Söderberg were just two Swedish kids with powerful voices and an undeniable love for American country and folk music. That same year, a video of them performing the Fleet Foxes track " Tiger Mountain Peasant" rocketed them into the spotlight, and they've never really left. On their fourth album Ruins, the duo moves beyond merely celebrating the American folk canon; they take their place as masters of the craft alongside the artists they idolize.
PLUS! Singer/guitarist Lauren Calve and her band Run Come See have taken a hard look at the state of Trump's America, and on their latest single they're making it clear that they're not gonna take it anymore.
