DOWNLOAD: Taken By Trees - Lost and Found (MP3)

Taken By Trees

I was taken (aka they are really good) by a few Taken By Trees songs I heard when the album ("Open Field") first came out on Rough Trade (September 11th 2007). Then I totally forgot about it by accident. I didn't even realize at the time, (DUH) that the voice I was hearing was Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes and "Young Folks" fame. It's true she can come off a little icy in person (or is that a cultural thing?), but I'm excited nonetheless - for their first American show at the Zipper Theatre Hiro Ballroom in NYC on February 22nd is what I mean. Tickets go on sale Tuesday January 29th at noon. A video and all tour dates below....

i saw her with the concretes at bowery, good show, but the crowd kept talking throughout. i can't wait to see her solo, i really enjoy her voice and awkwardness.

acid house kings were similarly "icy" when they were over in the states in 2006. but jens lekman and his bandmates are so sweet and fluffy that they debunk the cultural myth of swedish indie poppers' having cold, cold hearts.
