Raveonettes: duo from Denmark who produce gorgeous ambient rock, sounding at turns like Jesus and Mary Chain, Lush, MBV, with lots of 60's rock influences, but still having their own unique sound. They just played in SF and I wish I'd known about these guys. Their new album "Observator" is excellent.
First Aid Kit: 2 sisters from Sweden, ages 19 and 21, who make folky Americana/country/rock. Their latest album, "The Lion's Roar" is a little masterpiece of strong songwriting, singing (these girls can SING! Check out their harmonizing!!), and pure emotion. If you like Emmylou Harris you will like this group (and they are big fans of her).
Any fans or either/both??
