JP Marat and Big Barking Dog present Alternative Folk by First Aid Kit

When I started producing content for radio 5-6 years ago, my first show included a song by First Aid Kit. They are a remarkable Swedish Alternative folk duo that includes sisters Klara Söderberg (on vocals/guitar) and Johanna Söderberg (on vocals, bass, keyboards and autoharp). I’m long overdue to produce a show that highlights their impressive body of work. Today I present songs from several First Aid Kit albums including: The Lion’s Roar, Stay Gold, Drunken Trees and Ruins. While the band is Swedish their sound contains elements of pure Americana. Klara and Johanna have long favored many classic American musicians including: Billie Holiday, Emmy Lou Harris and The Carter Family. The Carter family was the "first family" of American Country music from the 1930’s thru the 1960’s . . . with June Carter Cash (who wrote and performed "Ring of Fire" with her husband Johnny Cash) as one of their most prominent members.

JP Marat and Big Barking Dog present "In the End" by The Cranberries (released in April 2019)

This is the final (and perhaps the finest) album by the Alternative Band called "The Cranberries." Bursting on to the Alt/Indie scene in 1993 with their debut album entitled "Everyone Is Doing It, Why Can't We?" their haunting track "Linger" continues to be heavily featured on Alt/Indie Rock radio stations across the world. Today I play my favorite tracks from their final Album appropriately titled "In the End" released in April of 2019, following the death of their lead singer Delores O'Riordan.
