33. First Aid Kit - ‘The Lion’s Roar’ + Planter’s Punch

First Aid Kit - ‘The Lion’s Roar’ + Planter’s Punch

Ingredients: 3 ounces dark rum, 1 ounce lime juice, 1/2 ounce lemon juice, 1/2 ounce grenadine, 1/4 teaspoon superfine sugar.

Mixing Instructions: Stir well with ice then strain into a highball filled with ice.  Stick a straw in it and garnish with a lemon.

Notes: The voices of the young Soderberg sisters (Swedish) blend together in a sweet and delicious way like, well…rum, citrus and sugar.  There must be something in the Scandinavian water as the album channels classic Americana spirits from Joni Mitchell to June Carter in a way that feels eerily similar to Kristian Matsson’s (Tallest Man on Earth) connection to Bob Dylan.  Mesmerizing harmonies, sweet, smooth — an earnest effort that will give you reason to pause and sip your  punch as a flood of youthful memories come rushing back.
