Possibly one of my favorite covers ever, I actually listen to Taken by Trees “My Boys” more than the original (“My Girls” by Animal Collective).

After months of listening to Taken by Trees do this song, I went back to play Animal Collective’s track. Only then did I realize how unique and full of talent the cover song truly was- to hear in your head a lovely slightly bouncy acoustic melody somewhere in the original, I feel would be puzzling if not just plain unlikely for most; but Taken by Trees heard just that and manifested the sound into their cover.

Taken by Trees definitely made this song their own which is always fun to listen to and to look at the transformation.
