Animal Collective’s girls have gone to Pakistan — and they’ve gotten a sex change. Sweden’s Taken by Trees (Victoria Bergsman) recorded a cover of the Collective’s “My Girls” — and the rest of her new album, East of Eden — in that country. The fusion makes the song interesting in a new way, with the exhilarating waves of sound replaced by the unfamiliar and refreshing use of Pakistani instruments. In a bit of gender reversal that could or could not be an allusion to the Eastern/Western dichotomy at play, “My Girls” becomes “My Boys.” The video is a series of up-close, unfocused images, where everyday things become strange and lovely. Watch the National Geographic mini-documentary about East of Eden here.
