Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Oh, those amazing Söderberg Sisters! Summer 2012 videos & audio of "First Aid Kit" show Klara and Johanna's amazing talent is only growing -in perfect harmony; Stockholm audio and Paris video proves they're the real deal; #FirstAidKitBand

First Aid Kit (Klara Söderberg & Johanna Söderberg) - "Blues Run The Game" (LIVE). From the studios of Sveriges Radio, Stockholm, Sweden, July 8, 2012.  

First Aid Kit's Klara and Johanna Söderberg went to the Stockholm studios of P1 at Sveriges Radio on Sunday afternoon and over 90 minutes, discussed many things, including their experiences in the U.S., having recorded their newest album, The Lion's Roar, in Omaha and toured extensively to rapturous crowds. They also play D.J. and feature some of the songs they've been influenced by and which they like. The audiotape of them near the beginning as very young kids is quite amusing!

Because it's in Swedish, you might not understand everything you hear, but trust me, the music speaks for itself.

Back on June 22nd the sisters met BBC Radio 6's Lauren Laverne and did a LIVE session and it became a must-listen, with sweet harmonies soon flowing, including Blue and Emmylou.

Last week Johanna and Klara were in Paris and were recorded singing The Lion's Roar while walking around before performing later that night at The Olympia.

My first blog post about the ridiculously-talented Söderberg sisters and their amazing sound was right before Thanksgiving, in a November 19, 2011 post titled, What's that beautiful sound coming from the woods? Sweet harmony! First Aid Kit - "The Lion's Roar"; Wow!

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
