Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes your bike doesn’t work right, and the people you love are far away, and don’t return your phone calls, and there is a weird smell coming from under your kitchen counter that’s probably not going to go away, and you stay up at night worrying about things like the Hadron particle accelerator creating a black hole that will swallow the earth before you have a chance to say you’re sorry. Sometimes it’s like that.

And sometimes a pair of Swedish teenagers go into the forest and record the MOST BEAUTIFUL SONG YOU’VE EVER HEARD.

(what I do know: The band is called First Aid Kit, and they are covering a song by Seattle’s Fleet Foxes)
