We've been anticipating Clara and Joanna Soderberg's sophomore record - and major-label debut - as First Aid Kit, Stay Gold, for a while thanks to the strengths of early singles like "My Silver Lining" and "Cedar Lane," so we're psyched that the whole thing's up for streaming now, a week in advance of its physical release. We're loving it so far - the sisters' frank, singular voices layered over emotive strings sometimes recall Lana Del Rey, then they'll bust out some gleefully pissed-off lyrics and shatter the illusion completely. "Cedar Lane" is an obvious highlight - and maybe one of our favorite songs of the year - but we dig "Shattered & Hollow" and "The Bell" too. Listen below, revisit the video for "My Silver Lining", or pick up a physical copy in a record store starting June 10th.
