VSQ Master Series: Velvet Underground's Velvet Underground & Nico

Download on iTunes The Vitamin String Quartet Master Series presents the  critically acclaimed Velvet Undergound & Nico album. Known for  unabashedly diving into riské and dark subject matters, the album with  Andy Warhol's yellow banana gave birth to some of rock's greatest songs  of all time. We dare you to go deeper into the music through the VSQ's  complex string arrangements where violin, viola and cello take you on a  journey that is beautifully parallel to the experiences you originally  get from songs such as "Heroin" and "I'm Waiting For the Man." Tracklist:
  1. Heroin (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  2. The Black Angel’s Death Song (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  3. Femme Fatale (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  4. Sunday Morning (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  5. European Son  (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  6. All Tomorrow’s Parties (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  7. There She Goes Again (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  8. I’m Waiting for the Man (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  9. Venus in Furs (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  10. I’ll Be Your Mirror (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)
  11. Run, Run, Run (originally performed by The Velvet Underground and Nico)

VSQ Employee Mixtape #2: The Art Department

By 23

Please welcome the second installment of our new series of employee playlists, designed by the experts themselves - the VSQ staff! Like we said in our first post, we designed this series to help fans discover VSQ tracks they may have never found otherwise - and show off our impeccable and discerning musical taste! Last week we visited Taylor in the Marketing Department to see what was on her iTunes rotation. This week, lets check out what the art department is spinning.

Mixtape #2: Art Deparment Deep in the bowls of this ship we call “the art department” lies the desk of graphic designer Steven (aka PONG). If you had the chance to go through his itunes library you’d see he(I love referring to myself in 3rd person) is into a lot of music. There’s so much in the VSQ catalog, and narrowing down the fav’s is not a task for the faint at heart(look at me ma! I’m blogging!).
