2012, Wichita Recordings

VINYL FORMAT. Digital download card included! Swedish sisters First Aid Kit have gone from faraway teenage fans covering Fleet Foxes for fun to recording a Blue Series 7-Inch single of Buffy Sainte- Marie's "Universal Soldier" with Jack White in his Nashville, TN Third Man Studios. Originally signed by The Knife owned label, Rabid Records, Wichita Recordings signed them in 2009 and released their debut LP The Big Black and the Blue in early 2010. Their sophomore album was recorded in spring 2011 in Omaha, NE produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, Monsters of Folk). From the dynamic title track onwards, the sophomore album is a rich and stirring affair that expands upon the keen and sophisticated country tinged pop of their critically acclaimed debut. The Lion's Roar is a full band record, the girls' father Benkt takes the bass, Mattias Bergqvist drums, while Mogis and Nate Walcott of Bright Eyes, and a cast of Omaha-based musicians round out the sound. Album closer, 'King of the World' features The Felice Brothers, just passing through town during the session, and local hero Conor Oberst, who sings the last verse.
