Covers, B-Sides, and Rarities: First Aid Kits' "Tiger Mountain Peasent Song"

When Stereogum first posted the Swedish duo, First Aid Kit's brilliant cover of Fleet Foxes' 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song', it was written as a fan made video. But that's not necessarily and entirely true is it? Both the girls are well established musicians, which I've yet to listen to their original works. At only 15 and 17, both Klara and Johanna have certainly developed a mature music taste that's well beyond their years. I've been listening to this cover even more than the original to no end now-- it's that remarkable. That Fleet Foxes record is also unexpectedly, starting to considerably grow on me.
