Unfortunately I'm at work and can't post a video, but someone else should do it.
This is a Swedish folk/indie band, and they're like fifteen years old.
Since Sweeden is made of win already, check them out.

First Aid Kit; as follows,
Thank you Bane' I've come to depend on the suggestions of you at music banter for my new listenings, thanx "you're not coming home tonight" is real good. Tiger mountain peasant song! Just so you know six months ago I was searching out Judas Priest and David Allen Coe, trying to hear everything from my youth. Now I listen to what boils down to folk, What a trip.
I don't care who you are, Gunslinger, shmunslinger, everyone needs a good purse.

First Aid Kit
I'm surprised there isn't a thread about them here. I couldn't even find mention of them in any posts. Well... here ya go anyway:
First Aid Kit is comprised of two young Swedish sisters that perform both originals and covers, using only both their voices and a single acoustic guitar.
I'd found out about them around 2 years ago on Myspace and was immediately taken by their sound and vocal quality. Their dynamic between each other is perfect and the emotion they're capable of projecting is nothing less than breathtaking. These two are like female versions of Simon & Garfunkel and I love it.
Here are a few videos of them in action:
The first is a cover of Fleet Foxes - Tiger Mountain Peasant Song, which is arguably First Aid Kit's best-known cover. They do an amazing job in this, and another thing that should be noted is they actually use the woods as a natural reverb, which you can hear if you listen closely when they're projecting. Everything about this cover is genius, and it really highlights their harmonizing capability and natural talent.
This next vid is of their original Jagadamba, You Might.
Love the tone of it, and their raw delivery. I like this live version far better than the actual released version.
And here they do a cover of "Walk The Line" by J. Cash. Perfect.
Another one live on the streets:
Their more recent stuff:
Anyway, I think these girls are super talented and just wanted to share a little First Aid Kit with you guys just in case you needed some.

Wow thanks for sharing, that's fantastic. I've got to get me some stuff of theirs now, definitely that fleet foxes cover.

I stumbled upon First Aid Kit randomly, and the song that came on was the Fever Ray cover of When I Grow Up. The vocals intrigued me the most. I like Drunken Trees, and I will keep a lookout because I think they have potential and they help me sleep sometimes.
