Covers, B-Sides, and Rarities: Taken by Trees' "My Boys"

I am in somewhat of an agreement when they say that Animal Collective’s ‘My Girls’ may be the greatest track this year has to offer. But 9th best track of the decade? I dunno…… I mean this is the ‘decade’ we’re talking about.

Via Stereogum:
Enter "Young Folks"/ex-Concretes singer Victoria Bergsman aka Taken By Trees. Her terrific, foreign born East Of Eden includes "My Boys," a jaunty and vaguely tropical take on Merriweather's celebrated single that messes around with gender roles. Everyone needs adobe slabs.
