First Aid Kit Plays Live; Blues Harmonica Player John Nemeth; Carla Bruni's 'Little French Songs'

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

With John Schaefer on vacation this week, Soundcheck is inviting special guests to fill the host chair and revisiting some of our favorite interviews and in-studio performances.

First: Anna Sale, host of WNYC’s Death, Sex & Money podcast, takes a turn in the guest host chair and talks with the band First Aid Kit -- the Swedish duo made up of sisters Johanna and Clara Soderberg. The two play songs from their newest album, Stay Gold, and talk about the challenges and rewards of being in a band with the person who knows you best.

Then: David Garland, host of WNYC’s Spinning on Air, talks with blues singer and harmonica player John Nemeth, who plays live with his backing band, the Memphis soul outfit The Bo-Keys.

And, we listen back to Studio 360 host Kurt Andersen’s 2013 Soundcheck conversation with former French First Lady Carla Bruni, who played a couple of selections from her latest albumLittle French Songs – and charmed our entire staff with her elegant accent and joie de vivre.


First Aid Kit: In Studio

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

The sister duo First Aid Kit is from Sweden…but you’d never know it listening to their new album “The Lion’s Roar.” What they make is a kind of Americana, with acoustic guitars, autoharp, lots of layered, sisterly harmonies -- and shout outs to Emmylou, June, Gram and Johnny (no last names needed). They join us live in studio.
