The Smashing Pumpkins are giving away their newest release, a four-song EP called Teargarden by Kaleidyscope Volume 1: Songs for a Sailor thru their website. Here are the four songs:
A Song For A Son
A tragic tune that’s certainly the strongest of all four songs. Songs like this make you happy the Smashing Pumpkins got back together.
Widow Wake My Mind
This light-rock diddy features Billy Corgan doing his best impression of The Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star”.
A Stitch In Time
Interesting song that sounds like a renaissance fair performer mixed with an Indian rock band full of electric sitars.
Ugh. Psychedlic Fraggle-Rock. Songs like this make you wish the Smashing Pumpkins never got back together.
Songs For A Sailor is the first release of a planned 11 Volume EP set planned for the Pumpkins. An interesting approach to releasing music and while I’m not digging all these songs I am looking forward to what’s next.
