Sweedish folk duo First Aid Kit deliver their debut: Drunken Trees. This quietly accomplished mini LP centres itself around an acoustic sound. At no point does this record make a concerted effort at hiding an undeniably impressive vocal capacity. This is a mightily impressive sounding record.

Drunken Trees being First Aid Kit's 2008 release is a mix between pop and folk music and is released as an EP and contains 7 songs and is 25 minutes long. They sound like a mix between Indigo Girls (without the politics) and early Jewel. I was very impressed by their vocal skills and their well-written lyrics. Definitely an up-and-coming folk band. They are two sisters from Sweden, both teenagers, but with great voices and good influences. They play guitar, organ, piano, and autoharp, and can both belt it out and harmonise.
