Released:
Label: Rough Trade
Taken by Trees' Victoria Bergsman is no new Swedish indie rocker on the block. Formerly of the Concretes (of Target commercial fame), she is also a Friend of Peter, Bjorn and John (two of whom assisted with this album). But boy, has the girl gotten weird on her first solo album! Strange, quasi-Chinese instrumental numbers alternate with tracks dominated by Bergsman's elderly little girl vocals and intentionally infantile instrumentation ("Chopsticks"-style pianos, erratic woodblocks, untuned ukuleles). At times alienating and overly precious, Open Field is still strangely enticing and exotic.
