It's been a breakout year for Chvrches, the Scottish synth-pop trio responsible for some of 2013's most delectable hooks. Today marks the U.S. release of their debut LP, The Bones of What You Believe, which coincides with the exclusive premiere of Moon Boots' remix of "The Mother We Share." 

Band to Watch: Chvrches

The electronic producer layers Lauren Mayberry's delicate croon over silky new-age synth pads and funky electronic flourishes. "I love the innocence of the song and the way it plays with the complicated emotions we all have with our parents and siblings," Moon Boots tells Rolling Stone. "And to put my own spin on things, I tried to imagine what it would sound like if it were produced by Nile Rodgers and Pete Rock." 

The Bones of What You Believe is available on iTunes.

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
