Taken By Trees – My Boys (Animal Collective cover)
I would love to do a remix of this cover. This is a cover of an Animal Collective track called, “My Girls”. Taken by Trees is the moniker used by Victoria Bergsman, whom you might recognize as the voice from Peter Bjorn and John’s, “Young Folks”. The instrumentation on this track reminds me of Vampire Weekend.
There isn’t much that I feel I needA solid soul and the blood I bleedBut with a little girl, and by my spouse,I only want a proper houseI don’t care for fancy thingsOr to take part in the freshest wave,But to provide for mine who askI will, with heart, on my father’s graveOn my father’s grave(On your father’s grave)I don’t mean to seem like ICare about material things,Like a social status,I just wantFour walls and adobe slatsFor my boys
