Album of the week

Gish is the debut studio album by The Smashing Pumpkins. Frontman Billy Corgan has variously described Gish as a "very spiritual album" and "an album about spiritual ascension". Gish received positive reviews from critics, and was eventually certified platinum (one million copies shipped) by the RIAA. On April 1, 2019 Rolling Stone magazine ranked Gish the 32nd greatest grunge album of all time.

Song of the day

"Drown" is a promotional single by The Smashing Pumpkins from the soundtrack to the 1992 Cameron Crowe film, Singles. The song debuted during the Gish tour and was first recorded at Waterfront Studios, which belongs to Lenny Kravitz. "Drown" became a moderate radio hit in mid-1992 and gave the band significant exposure just before work commenced on Siamese Dream. It peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.
