Vinyl love: First Aid Kit “Stay gold”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: First Aid Kit
Album Title: Stay gold
Year released: 2014
Details: Limited edition, translucent gold vinyl, Gatefold

The skinny: I was leery about purchasing the Söderberg sisters’ (aka First Aid Kit) third album on vinyl because I was worried that their transition to the major label world would push them too deep into pop territory for my tastes. Happily, my fears were unwarranted and instead we had more of the same lovely harmonies found on “The lion’s roar“, only with more musician support and a crisper production. Album #4, “Ruins”, is due out in two days.

Standout track: “My silver lining”

Yeah. I think it’s probably the colour that works best as translucent. It’s quite smart.
