mp3: Taken By Trees – Anna (CFCF Remix)

Tomorrow night the lovely Victoria Bergsman (aka the central force behind Taken By Trees) will dj in between live sets by Marissa Nadler, Natureboy, Monogold, Villagers, and Rey Villalobos at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn (tickets). You may best know Bergsman as the female counterpart to Peter, Bjorn & John on their infamous track “Young Folks” or as a former singer for The Concretes. But more recently, the Swedish songstress recorded her latest album in Pakistan with musicians like the Sufi singer Sufi Sain Muhammad Ali. The resulting effort East of Eden was released last year to resounding critical acclaim.

This video of a soundcheck performance of “My Boys” and “Anna” was shot for yourstru.ly last March in San Francisco.
