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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
