First Aid Kit, the Swedish folk duo comprised of sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg, are making their second trip to the States to promote their album "The Big Black & The Blue," which will be officially released in North America on May 25th.  By the strength of their music, it's surprising to find out that Klara and Johanna are just 17 and 19 years old.  Klara's deep and powerful voice is reminiscent of such seasoned players as Neko Case, and Johanna's harmonies make their music magical and timeless.  Check out the video for "I Met Up With the King" below:
