I first heard of First Aid Kit during a night-owl session working on the Faux Rawk site. They were appearing on Letterman, and due to his having the best taste in music for an older fogie, I tuned in.
Even if their music was a load of dung, the band name is cool enough (I'm still amazed it hadn't been taken before) to give them at least a modicum of respect. The fact that they're a couple of Swedish gals doing some of the best country music this side of the Ozarks makes them the complete package.
When Klara Söderberg began to write music, she decided to go under a pseudonym and came up with First Aid Kit via a simple flip-through of an English dictionary. Big sis Johanna was brought into the fold and they've been supernova ever since.
And if you're not a country fan, they also pull off a pretty solid Black Sabbath impression.
