First Aid Kit 'Ruins' (album stream)
Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit are back with a brand new album called Ruins, and it's finally available to stream.
 
The record hears Johanna and Klara Söderberg collaborating with an impressive backing band comprising R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Midlake's McKenzie Smith and Wilco's Glenn Kotche, as well as working with acclaimed producer Tucker Martine.
 
As Klara recently told Exclaim!, the new cast of players allowed them to move away from the "polished and perfect" sound of their previous albums and really focus on getting "the sadness and the pain across."
 
We've heard samples of the new album thanks to teaser tracks like "It's a Shame," "Postcard" and "Fireworks," but now Ruins has arrived in its entirety.

Stream the new record below. It's out now via Columbia.
