New music that I’m really enjoying

I love a good music recommendation and have had First Aid Kit on high rotate ever since Helen recommended them a few months ago.

They’re kind of dreamy music with substance. I mean, there’s only so many times you can listen to Belle & Sebastian before you want to claw your own ear drums out. These guys are more along the line of Fleet Foxes with a folky, sometimes country feel. I really like this song:

I routinely play First Aid Kit in the shop when it’s my day and had it on on Saturday when a blog reader came in – we chatted about how great they were and agreed that Emmy Lou was a great song:

And when you’re ready to disco dance then this is my pick for you (it’s not by First Aid Kit).

Any recommendations for me? Don’t say Bjork.

    Loooove first aid kit! And fleet foxes 🙂 I’m currently listening to ‘The National’ a lot (latest album, trouble will find me), and also Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. Because, always. I have WIDE ranging musical tastes… If you wanna go a little ‘new grass’ (blue grass? country -ish, bear with me) maybe ‘The Be Good Tanya’s?’
    I find it hard to recommend music to people. In case they don’t like it. Then what will they think of me?! So I’m being brave…

    Bo Diddley and The Carter family!
