Swedish House Mafia have called it quits, but the trio can't be bothered with down time. The group's Steve Angello is back at it with "SLVR," teaming with Russian duo Matisse and Sadko for a towering house track. "SLVR" marks important milestones for Angello's Size Records: it's the label's 100th release, and it celebrates Size Record's 10th anniversary. As such, the titanic synth trusts and jackhammer drum tracks provide an appropriate sensory overload for a massive birthday bash.

"SLVR" will be out August 12th. Angello will play New York's Central Park on September 27th and 28th as part of SIZE in the Park; for more information, visit the event's website.

“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."
