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.

“Vicious”

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."
