EDITORS’ NOTES

After two records characterised by intimate, finely-wrought Americana, Swedish sibling duo First Aid Kit unleash something gutsier, bolder and bigger on this breakthrough. This expansion of scope applies in a practical sense—they are joined on multiple tracks by the Omaha Symphony Orchestra—but, more than that, it seeps into Stay Gold’s broader mood. “Cedar Lane” builds masterfully from wistful prairie rock to a rousing finish and “Waitress Song” packs an arena-filling supply of country attitude. “I won’t take the easy road,” trill the Söderberg sisters amid the galloping groove of “My Silver Lining”, underlining the industriousness behind their music’s sun-dappled ease.
