Today’s fit: “Emmylou” by First Aid Kit

This unconventional love song pays sweet praise to older artists that these gorgeous Swedish girls clearly admire.

If you’re unfamiliar with First Aid Kit, they are two sisters from Sweden who blew up after posting a little video of themselves covering Fleet Foxes in a forest somewhere. At the time, Johanna was just 17 and her younger sis Klara was just 14 (!!!). Five years later, the gals are no strangers to the music business.

I was lucky enough to see them back in the fall of 2010 at the El Mocambo before they exploded to play the likes of bigger Toronto venues such as the Danforth Music Hall (!!)
