CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: Animal Collective The Painters EP
We really wish we didn’t have to be writing this right now, but after taking Dave to the doctor this morning it turns out that he has laryngitis and unfortunately we are unable to play the show tonight.
We are already in the middle of trying to reschedule NY dates in the next couple of months to make up for this cancellation. Due to circumstances beyond both our and the promoter’s control, we are unable to honor the tickets for tonight’s show.
Fans that have tickets will be able to get full refunds at the place of purchase, and we will let everyone know as soon as we have new dates scheduled.
Again, our sincere apologies to fans anticipating this show. We are always psyched to play NYC and will make it up to you.
– Animal Collective
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.
