As you may remember from her recent Peter Gabriel cover, Karin Dreijer Andersson aka. Fever Ray embraces darkness with glitchy goth-techno productions. The former singer of the Knife, Andersson delves deep into the psyche to discover some creepy truths. It’s music to soundtrack a 2 a.m. bout of paranoia. Or create one.

Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit are, suffice to say, less gloomy. Fever Ray seems a strange choice for them until you realize they record for the Rabid Records label. And who runs that label? Andersson herself. Connections everywhere! This woodsy cover comes as the b-side to the band’s new “Ghost Town” single, which drops next Tuesday.
