As a lifelong fan of music, it is humorous to have your very own offspring mock your musical tastes as old fashioned. Once in a while, though, I startle them by sniffing out something they (grudgingly) wind up liking before they or their friends discover it.
First Aid Kit’s Emmylou is one such song, a terrific tune that resonates despite the fact that I’ve never, ever been much of a fan of country music. Still, the most remarkable about this song (indeed, the album itself) by this sister act is that they hail from that bedrock of country music…Sweden!
Either way, great, great song.
