Jam of the Day | First Aid Kit - Emmylou


First Aid Kit's 2010’s debut, The Big Black and the Blue was chillingly intimate, feeling somehow like the female yin to the mansculine yang of Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago. And keeping with that comparison, their new album, The Lion's Roar, mirrors Justin Vernon's eponymous second album by adding a full band and completely expanding their sound.

Our Jam of the Day, “Emmylou,” is immediately identifiable, name dropping such greats as Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, and June Carter, along with Ms. Harris, yet for all its sunshine-laced folk, it conveys the sadness that ultimately claimed the relationships and lives of these heroes.

Watch the video for the song below and go ahead and pre-order The Lion's Roar when you're done.  It's out January 24th on Wichita Recordings.

  6. Nikes been doing some exciting things with the Nike Blazer as of late. Sure, theres always the vintage thought process of returning the shoe to a premium suede look for nostalgias sake, but the brand has also showed how diverse the sneaker can be with looks like the WMNS Iridescent Blazer and the Safari Collection. The latest out-there design is this patchwork like Nike Blazer Mid PRM Vintage Quilted, one that utilizes a number of chambray panels in alternating patterns ranging from polka-dots, stripes and solids for a head-turning colorway. What do you think? Check out a better view of this Nike Blazer Mid after the click and be on the lookout for this Quilted aesthetic to arrive at UK retailers this Saturday, 10/25.
