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

"Loki Cat" is a song by Jimmy Chamberlin Complex from their debut album, Life Begins Again. It features Billy Corgan on vocals, and Jimmy's older brother, Paul Chamberlin, on additional drums.

  • ...the drowning Statue of Liberty on the Zeitgeist cover was meant to portray global warming and the eminent demise of many founding United States ideals? There are six editions of the album in different colors and with varying bonus tracks.
  • ...that the guitar solo on "Siva" is the band's first use of the Big Muff pedal that was famously used on Siamese Dream?

  • ...that the song "Siva" was originally called "Shiva" in reference to Indian/Asian folklore, and the band still pronounces it "Shiva"?
  • ...that a live recording of the first show as a full band was given away for free at the last show (pre-2007), both at the same venue?
