@smashingpumpkins released Shiny and Oh So Bright Vol. 1 today and I am a very happy pumpkins fan. @williampcorgan @chamberdrums @jamesihaofficial @jjjschroeder unsurprisingly made my favorite release of the year. If you like old pumpkins, new pumpkins, classic rock, poetry, polyrhythms and layers, complexity and variety, you should listen to this. There’s influence of the past without rehashing something that has already existed, a newness with echoes of remembrance. I am pleased and will be lost in music until further notice. #smashingpumpkins#shinyandohsobrightour2018#sp#wpc#newmusic#marchinon#silverysometimes
Can't even concentrate at school today. I wanna go home and lay across my bed and listen to the new @smashingpumpkins album and eat chex mix and be left alone.#SP2018#smashingpumpkins
When I laid out clothes for the boys I made sure Ev was in his “Corgan” shirt today. They’re at school so now I have the silence I need to finally listen to the new @smashingpumpkins album. It’s Rex Manning, I mean, Smashing Pumpkins Day 😍 I’ll have to stream it until my record ships... It’s the best time since Machina to be an SP fan 🧡 #smashingpumpkins#shinyandohsobright#thesmashingpumpkins#billycorgan
The beautiful thing about voices such as Billy Corgan's is that in most cases they do not die away before the aging bodies they emerge from. But that's exactly what I suspected: I thought most of Corgan's voice had to be withered and mouldered by now. My assumption was that Corgan would perhaps try to pick out a certain facet of his unique singing, to select it, to optimize this selection, and otherwise try to compensate for his age deficits. The remainings would appear polished and chic, but completely missing any diversity. But as true as the processes of selection, optimization and compensation may be for older adult's skills, for Billy Corgan and his voice they do not apply yet, the cunning hermaphrodite of an angel and a devil remains. And interestingly, they do not apply for the rest of the (mostly) reunited Smashing Pumpkins either. Admittedly, the perfectly produced, unbelievable warmth of the apparently 100 fused, shoegazey electric guitars on the album 'Siamese Dream' is and remains unrivalled forever. "Knights of Malta" does not even try to compete: A single electric guitar remains, appears in all its loneliness on the song, but it is present enough to give the track something distinctive here and there. In an instrumental middle piece of the song it becomes a rather naughty part of an otherwise stuffy, lush violin orchestra environment, digging itself from right to left and vice versa in order to briefly annoy all orchestra members indulging in concentrated boredom. In the refrain, however, the orchestra takes full command again, rounding off the catchy melodic arcs that Billy shares with a very solid female accompaniment. My doubts were definitely unfounded: On "Knights of Malta" and especially in Corgan's voice astonishingly little has died away.
And here it is!

Cheap Tattoo // 30.12.2017
I'm not sure what was in this beer but 2018 has been the most creative and productive year ever. Since the date on this can, we've written and demo'd up over 30 songs between us (one of which you can hear on this video). And while it's been an absolute pleasure nurturing them and watching them grow throughout this time, the truth is they're ready to leave home... So the question is, are you ready for some new llama riot goodness!? 💥 🎧 Listen to new EP - link in bio! 👉
