First Aid Kit Cover Fleet Foxes

Clay and I agree that the Fleet Foxes album was good - but not album of the year material. At least not to our hair-metal-weaned ears. This is a video from Swedish duo, First Aid Kit covering "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" by Fleet Foxes. I'm not sure how I missed this because it was apparently some sort of phenomenon back in September of last year. At any rate, First Aid Kit were signed to The Knife's label and are putting out their debut soon(ish) on Wichita recordings (Los Campesinos! Bright Eyes). It's a pretty damn gorgeous cover.
