Following a hugely successful 2014, Sweden’s sisterly folk-pop duo First Aid Kit are continuing to promote Stay Gold, one of my personal favorite records of last year.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Weekly Wax! The most exciting release of the last seven days is one that nobody saw coming. Copeland might have launched a painfully long pre-order for Ixora, but the wait will certainly be worth it, and you can still pick up a copy on black or white vinyl. If […]
