Klara and Johanna Söderberg, the Swedish sisters who make up the duo First Aid Kit, learned to love American-heartland alt-roots music when they first heard Bright Eyes. In making their new album Stay Gold, the duo went to the source, traveling to Omaha and working with Bright Eyes producer and Monsters Of Folk member Mike Mogis. (They also sing backup on Conor Oberst’s new album Upside Down Mountain.) We’ve posted the duo’s languid, ’70s-sounding new songs “Cedar Lane” and “My Silver Lining,” and now all of Stay Gold is streaming at NPR.
Stay Gold is out 6/10 on Columbia.
