8 tracks, 7 of which are wonderful. Beautiful harmonies, a simple acoustic sound which charms you from the first listen. For the price, there shouldn't even be a hesitation. Buy it.

I came across First Aid Kit from a recommendation in a newspaper - which is a very unusual way of finding new music, especially for me. However, I like the short bio I read and decided to check out their myspace. I was not disappointed. Their music was poignant, haunting and varied maintaining a distinct and pleasing sound. I knew immediately after listening to all the tracks there that I had to download something of theirs. I thought this was the perfect place and start and their debut EP hasn't disappointed. They seem very charming people, with gripping songs and a rare old type of sound that isn't hear much these days - especially by young musicians. I can't wait and look forward to hearing more from them.

I've had this album for a few months and still play it nearly every day and I have a hell of a lot of CD's lol and have music on almost constantly. I stumbled upon them on youtube and got goosebumps the first time I heard them sing then came straight to amazon and bought the cd :-) They have a new album out this year and I can't wait for it's release. I won't go through every song on the album because it's easy to go off and have a listen to them for yourself before buying but be aware if you do go searching for them, there are another music group called First Aid Kit lol, to avoid any confusion! Buy it, you won't regret it! Seriously, I know enough to enough about music (through most genres and away from mainstream mostly cr*p chart stuff) to know that this is flawless from start to finish. The only down side is that is quite short, 8 songs long but then a lot of albums have 'fillers', this doesn't, there are no obvious 'best' songs, this album is a real gem and I'm so glad to have found it. The album was produced by their Father, there's no commercial cr*p, just two talented youngsters communicating with purity and beauty like it should be, it's really refreshing. :-)

`Drunken Trees' is an 8-track mini-album full of sweet, lady-voiced folk. First Aid Kit comprise of Swedish teenage sisters and they peddle a fine line in swoonsome acoustica. Currently, they are most famous for covering the Fleet Foxes `Tiger Mountain Peasant Song' and, faithful and pleasing rendition as it is, one can't but get the feeling they are about to become famous in their own right, no matter the beardy shadow cast across their peer group.

`You're Not Coming Home Tonight' has a toe-tapping country feel to it, daring to talk of hallowed `9 to 5' routines. `Jagadamba, You Might' has a little vocal menace to the strumming and `Our Own Pretty Way' comes close to recalling Neko Case.

These are melodic, melancholic tales of love and loss and entirely suitable for discerning-campfire listening. A little keyboard and a driving bass line (Cross Oceans) lifts later tracks out of acoustic dependence but the whole is still comfortably lazy listening.

`Drunken Trees' has an aching beauty at its heart, much like the Fleet Foxes do, but they perhaps lack the depth the latter muster. What they do possess is resonance and First Aid Kit seem perfect for mending many a broken heart. This is music to fall in love to rather than with, a perfect accompaniment to that walk along the beach when you first took a special someone's hand. Entirely satisfying but frustratingly ephemeral, `Drunken Trees' 8 tracks are over before they began, and as such practically demand an extended stay in the player.

From girls so young when this a great record was produced this is a great EP. Whilst still a little unrefined, you can hear their potential, and in contrast with their subsequent albums you can really see the effort, love, and craftsmanship that they have developed over a very short period of time.

Early First Aid Kit, nice songs but not as polished as the later albums. Nice innocence and freshness in the lyrics and singing. Definitley not a bad buy if you like the swedish duo.

Surprised that it has taken me so long to discover the brilliant song writing and singing of these two talented sisters, every track is a gem, definitely recommended.
