Swedish teenage duo, First Aid Kit, take on Gram Parsonsesque country / folk, introducing a timeless style to a generation of kids not yet introduced to their parents record collections.

'The Big Black and the Blue' is the long awaited debut full-length from Swedish teenage duo First Aid Kit. 2009's mini-album, 'Drunken Trees' aroused interest with both their original material and their beautiful cover of Fleet Foxes' "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song", a Youtube sensation which is approaching a million views.

The sisters' take on Gram Parsonsesque country / folk is introducing a timeless style to a generation of kids not yet introduced to their parents record collections.
