East of Eden is the second album by Victoria Bergsman's solo-project Taken by Trees. Victoria travelled to Pakistan to record the follow-up to her last record Open Field. It includes a track called "My Boys", a cover of the Animal Collective song "My Girls" with some minor lyric changes. The song "Anna" also includes Animal Collective member Noah "Panda Bear" Lennox on backing vocals. The song "To Lose Someone" features the voice of local Sufi musician Sain Muhammad Ali. [8]
