Album of the week

The Smashing Pumpkins - Oceania cover.jpg Oceania is the eighth studio album from The Smashing Pumpkins, released in June 2012. Produced by Billy Corgan and Bjorn Thorsrud, the album forms part of the band's 34-track project album, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope. Corgan said the album is partly about "people struggling to find a social identity in today's fast-paced, technology-rich culture", adding "I think alienation seems to be the key theme – alienation in love and alienation in culture". The album peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Independent Albums chart. A live performance of the album, Oceania: Live in NYC, was released in September, 2013.
