ALBUM: The Smashing Pumpkins’ Oceania

The Smashing Pumpkins new album, Oceania, now available for live streaming and preorder on iTunes, is due to be released on June 19th opens strong with “Quasar.”  After a moment of ambient noise, the song begins with a crunching bass line typical of a Pumpkins song, summarily followed by a pulsating guitar riff and background drumming that for other artists is intricate enough to be a drum solo.  All t
