First Aid Kit, those two cute Swedish girls who covered Fleet Foxes last year are at it again. They are asking people via their Twitter profile for suggestions for songs to cover. This is the first one, a cover of Buffy-Sainte Marie and it’s pretty stunning.

Their Drunken Trees EP is out now and is quite good. Here’s the opening track from it:

First Aid Kit – Little Moon
