Third Man Records to Release Singles by First Aid Kit & Dungen


Rising Swedish folk-pop duo First Aid Kit and renowned psych-rockers Dungen are the latest artists to take part in Third Man Records’ Blue Series of releases. The special series of 7-inch records, produced by Jack White and recorded at his own Third Man Studios in Nashville, has featured releases from Wanda Jackson, Laura Marling and Secret Sisters, amongst others.

Dungen recorded two brand new tracks for the label: a mesmeric psych-pop odyssey “Oga Nasa Mum” (which translates into English as “Eye Nose Mouth”) and a haunting instrumental titled “Highway Wolf”. Since 2004 Dungen have released a string of critically lauded albums. Their impressive sixth full length Skit i allt (Subliminal Sounds/ Mexican Summer) was released earlier this year.

For their Blue Series release, First Aid Kit recorded spine-tingling covers of Buffy Sainte-Marie’s “Universal Soldier” (made famous in 1965 by Donovan) and classic blues standard “It Hurts Me Too”, a song much loved by fans of Karen Dalton’s 1969 folk-blues version. First Aid Kit is comprised of 17 and 20-year old sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg. They won international acclaim this year for their stunning debut album The Big Black And The Blue (Wichita Recordings).
