Album of the week

SmashingPumpkins-PeelSessions.jpg Peel Sessions is an EP from The Smashing Pumpkins, featuring songs recorded live on September 8, 1991 for John Peel's Radio 1 show, though minor overdubbing was later added. According to the Pisces Iscariot liner notes, the band was two hours late due to a technical misunderstanding, limiting the amount of material they were able to record. Three songs were recorded, including "Siva" and the previously unreleased songs "Girl Named Sandoz" and "Smiley". "Girl Named Sandoz" is a cover of The Animals, and is a reference to Sandoz Laboratories, where LSD was invented. The EP was released under Hut Records in the UK in June 1992.

Song of the day

"Drum + Fife" is the third single from The Smashing Pumpkins' ninth studio album Monuments to an Elegy. The track was premiered through NME on November 21, 2014. Corgan had originally written it as a folk song, but drummer Tommy Lee helped shift it into rock territory. The song was well-received by critics, with Consequence of Sound describing it as "a melodic, yet rallying rocker", and Corgan's vocals as "tenacious".
