my girls and boys

well this is just… neat. victoria bergstram’s new album as taken by trees, east of eden, is due out in just over a week on rough trade records. it was produced by dan lissvik of studio fame and it’s all kinds of gorgeous from what i’ve heard, something akin to lykke li backed by an acoustic tough alliance.

a flamenco-flavored track called “watch the waves” is already floating around the interwebs, and a lot of buzz is building for a song featuring noah “panda bear” lennox called “anna.” this greedy bastard just has to have his name somewhere on every awesome album this year doesn’t he?

as if his contribution to that song wasn’t enough, bergstram is perhaps setting a record for quickest cover turnaround in history and including a beautifully buoyant cover of animal collective’s “my girls” on the record. lennox and avey tare rather carelessly left out the boys in their plea for four walls and adobe slabs so bergstram is making sure they get their due, and i for one am totally with her on this.

hear her out after the jump…

now how long before the inevitable mash-up???
