Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #21 'The Lion's Roar' by First Aid Kit

I hadn't selected any alt-country or folk, yet, but here comes First Aid Kit, a Swedish group that sounds like they're from the Ozarks. I like the inauthenticity of the voices, the artificiality - but then again, who says Americans own country? "I'm a goddamn fool, but then again, so are you" - it's a great genre work, and really brings you into its cornpone world of faux Nashville gee-tars.  Fans of Fleet Foxes will love their whole album, in fact.
