First Aid Kit

Last year we featured a preview of First Aid Kit’s album The Lion’s Roar.

This is their first American-recorded album and their second full-length since their 2010 debut The Big Black & Blue.

These two Swedish sisters recorded in Omaha with Bright Eyes’ Mike Mogis producing.

“Blue” is the new single.

Lykke Li: Free download

Lykke Li is a compelling Swedish singer who has one album and a number of EPs under her name, and has performed with the likes of Röykscopp, Kings of Leon, Drake, Kanye West and Amanda Blank. Her new song “Get Some” has an irresistible “I Want Candy”/Bo Diddley backbeat combined with overt sexual lyrical imagery. She is giving the single away for free here as well as the B-side “Paris Blue”. Dance to this Song of the Day.

Jens Lekman

Jens Lekman, the idiosyncratic Swedish musician currently residing in Australia, has recorded very little music since 2007. Suffering through a broken heart, he was inspired by the Obama victory in 2008 and emerged from his pain. Reminiscent of the melancholy sound of Morrissey, “The End of the World is Bigger Than Love” is available as a free download and is the Song of the Day.
