7digital What we said: In a world where Fleet Foxes have basically started making post-rock, and Devendra Banhart has embraced gleaming Tropicália, First Aid Kit are now among the forefront of artists we talk about when we talk about the mantle of contemporary folk. Ruins is the Swedish duo’s fourth album, and finds them delving once more into wispy, silken vocal harmonies and engrossing melodies with an often country-pop lilt (think early Angel Olsen and, say, Julia Jacklin doing soaring duets). The music is smooth, rich easy-listening and, while lyrically there remains that dreamy, wide-eyed romanticism, there’s a jaded feeling underpinning proceedings as well (“Send me a postcard when you get to where you’re going, send me a line to everything you’ve left behind”, on ‘Postcard’). For gorgeous invocations of spirited woodlands and magical sunsets, you’ll want to put this one on a loop.
