Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Producing their fourth set, folk-rock impressionist Tucker Martine helps shape a dreamy grandeur, with touches of pedal steel and Peter Buck's guitar atmospherics, while a damaged romance bleeds across a widescreen America..."

Spin - "On their fourth album as First Aid Kit, indie-folk darlings Klara and Johanna S”derberg reckon with adult heartache like never before..."

Uncut - "'Hem Of Her Dress' finds a more raucous form of expression. An accelerated waltz driven by ragged saloon-bar vocals and rattling acoustic guitars, it ends in a big, boozy singalong, horns and strings colliding in the background..."

Magnet - "When they open up and truly let go, they achieve states of near euphoria and joyous magnificence. It's akin to some divine magic trick -- best not to question and instead bask in the reflected glory."

NME (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Ruins' is a lush, expansive release that uses the siblings' uncanny blood harmony to full effect, elevating their low-key folk songs into something majestic."

Paste (magazine) - "[T]here's a gentle weight of experience that permeates the album's lyrics, a freshly-sharpened edge of cynicism"
