Album of the week

Teargarden by Kaleidyscope cover.jpg Teargarden by Kaleidyscope is not technically an album, but a collection of two EPs along with Oceania and Monuments to an Elegy. It was originally conceived as an ambitious 44-song concept album loosely inspired by the Tarot, with each song being released individually as a free download. Billy Corgan said he considers the sound a return to the Pumpkins' "psychedelic roots", and told MusicRadar it found him "looking past, present and future all at the same time and trying to have that perspective". After 34 tracks were released, the project was abandoned. Nonetheless, all components had decent chart success, especially Oceania which peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200.

Song of the day

"G.L.O.W." is a single by The Smashing Pumpkins that premiered on Chicago alternative rock station Q101 on September 29, 2008. It was the last song to feature drummer Jimmy Chamberlin until he rejoined the band in 2018. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Billy Corgan stated that, with American Gothic and "G.L.O.W.", the band "finally turned the corner... where it’s starting to feel like our music again, and not theirs, whoever 'they' might be," referring to the band's choice to release without a record label. The song peaked at #11 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.
