First Aid Kit- Winter is All Over You (FG Remix)

7/11/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

I'm feeling really bipolar with my reactions right now. Part of me wants to rave about this song, but the critical fucker in me wants me to start singing that all-too-well-known tune D̶o̶ ̶Y̶o̶u̶ ̶W̶a̶n̶t̶ ̶T̶o̶ ̶B̶u̶i̶l̶d̶ ̶A̶ ̶S̶n̶o̶w̶m̶a̶n̶  "DO YOU WANT TO KILL A HIPSTER?!?" (music and lyrics by: Claire King-- with influence from her bf)). Don't get me wrong, the vocals of the two members of First Aid Kit, Johanna Söderberg and her sister, t̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶r̶u̶n̶e̶t̶t̶e̶ ̶v̶e̶r̶s̶i̶o̶n̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶S̶i̶r̶i̶ ̶C̶o̶s̶p̶e̶r̶  Klara, are stellar. The unnecessary anger stems from elsewhere. Their overall "i'm gonna be 'innovative' today and pair a floppy hat with a flowy dress made from my grandmother's curtains" look combined with their nonsensical titles makes wanna #vomit all over their extensive collection of paisley frocks. (srsly, "Winter is All Over You" is just confusing and ominous AS FUQ). Do less First Aid Kit, do less. Props to FG (Flo Gruber) for listening to the original long enough realize it could be remixed. I listened to the original and felt the immediate urge to slit my wrists whereas, when listening to the remix, I get no suicidal tendencies whatsoever so JWD (job well done, le duh) to F.G.! The faster vocals and jazz-ed up backbeat paired with some rul 1960's Woodstock-guitar and funky bass makes this song super chill and one to put on repeat fo sho.
