Click to listen to Surfer Blood's 'Miranda (Alt. Version)'

This version of "Miranda," a non-album track by Florida alt-rockers Surfer Blood, was produced by the Raveonettes’ Sune Rose Wagner. The new arrangement maintains the original's Beach Boys-esque quality while introducing a harder-hitting, more complete sound than that of the band’s 2010 debut Astro Coast. You can listen to the track above, or download it instantly when you pre-order Tarot Classics, in stores on September 20th.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
