The cover songs of First Aid Kit featuring "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song"

The Swedish sister vocal duo, First Aid Kit has
made quite reputation from performing covers as well as original self
written numbers.  Below you will find a is a list of the covers that they have done. At
least four songs,"Tiger Mountain Peasant Song", "Walk Unafraid", "America" and
"When I Grow Up' have been formally released by the group as recordings
but most of the songs have not. Among their most praised performances are there three appearances at the Polar Music Prize performing songs by Emmylou Harris, Paul Simon and Patti Smith. It is quite rare to hear vocal harmony today-especially by singers who match so well together,. the other bonus of this act is their willingness to perform acoustically pretty much  alone, and live.  The video above is their breakthrough video performing a song by Fleet Foxes, it was filmed in 2008.
