    Taken by Trees is the solo project of Victoria Bergsman, former lead singer for the Concretes. For her most recent album, East of Eden, Bergman undertook a dramatic and transformative trip to Pakistan to collaborate and record with local folkloric musicians. The resulting songs, including a cover of Animal Collective’s “My Girls” (re-titled “My Boys”) blur preconceived notions of the traditional and contemporary. Under the pseudonym El Perro del Mar, vocalist Sarah Assbring sings with a deep and meaningful longing. Her tender voice is underscored by shimmering pop and folk melodies, as documented on her most recent album Love is Not Pop, which features its own remarkable cover, an interpretation of Lou Reed’s “Heavenly Arms.”
