Album of the week

SmashingPumpkins-Gish.jpg 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

"Gossamer" is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins that was an Zeitgeist outtake. No studio recording has been made available, but it was performed regularly during the summer leg of the Zeitgeist tour, and a common feature of the band's live sets up to 2010. Its debut at the first Paris show in 2007 indicates that it was written during the Zeitgeist sessions, but this is not confirmed. The song duration typically ranges from 15 to 35 minutes. It was recorded live at the Fillmore and was released on the DVD If All Goes Wrong.
