Stream: First Aid Kit, ‘The Lion’s Roar’


From the title track to their Rosanne Cash-approved homage to Johnny, June Carter, Gram, and Emmylou, previews of the Söderberg sisters’ sophomore LP promised a big step forward for the Swedish duo. Now we get to hear the Mike Mogis-produced set in full, complete with guest vocals from Conor Oberst on the triumphant closing track “King of the World,” the seasonally apropos “New Year’s Eve,” and 8 more of some of the best folk tunes we’ve heard so far in 2012. Without further ado, get acquainted with The Lion’s Roar above (via Paste).
