First Aid Kit
The Söderberg sisters return with their third studio album Stay Gold. It is again produced by Mike Mogis and is perhaps the most consistent and confident of their offerings, although there are no songs here that can quite stand up to the pure beauty of Emmylou.
Since their last release they have moved to the major label of Columbia, and this is telling in the production, which is much grander. The beautiful close harmonies are of course present, with big choruses and a 13 piece orchestra.
It is a sun drenched offering of Americana that is an easy listen, however, one can’t help but wonder where they can go from here to avoid sounding formulaic.
Sounds like: Laura Marling, Fleet Foxes, Hello Saferide
Stand out track: My Silver Lining
