Arrow The Discographers: Smashing Pumpkins special

I haven't listened to this podcast, but Season 2 focuses on The Smashing Pumpkins.

Each episode discusses an album review, with 6 so far starting at Gish and so far up to Machina. Each is at least 2 hours long, so that's 12 hours or more of listening pleasure. Maybe.

Some of you may find it interesting.

My immediate issue within the first 5 minutes is that the only album they've listened to fully is Zeitgeist. This will be void of personal connection, for better or worse

This is cool but also shows how glaringly wrong classical music theorists often get it wrong.

To forgive for example, obviously in e minor and not b minor as he says.

Also galpogos, middle section Bb chord hints at a minor iv chord, typical Beatles move that is all over rock and pop music, but he interprets it as this over complicated Db mixolydian b6 mode.

This stuff annoys me lol.

This makes up for all the times I've never heard the word "mixolydian"

Itís interesting, but a chunk of it is wrong, and is approached from a musician trained in Classical theory, which causes him to miss the mark on some pretty straightforward things.

Lol then he says “some might disagree, but it’s my podcast.” Don’t broadcast it if you’re not confident with your analysis.

I've listened to the Gish and Siamese Dream episodes, and my favorite part so far is their reactions to the liner notes. They honestly contain a lot of laughable stuff, particularly to a non-fan who is wholly unaffected by the lore of the band.

The piece by piece musical dissections are a little too lengthy while the reviewing is a little underdeveloped, but I'm enjoying this and will definitely listen to the rest.

Started listening to the Machina episode which so far has been pretty interesting. Enjoying their fairly non-fanboy take on things, especially teasing out elements in the songs I'd previously ignored.

some of that commentary was actually pretty funny. I loved the enthusiasm for Machina, and the fact they aren't blind to its flaws.

Thanks for posting this. I listened to all of these. Very good stuff obviously. Can't believe I missed these when they were coming out but seems like it's a very small pod. He says they get less than 2500 listens per episode and no ads. Really took me back to learning all these gongs and the little nuance and details that were fun/annoying to play.

Man, for a hobby, I've been thinking about starting a collection of something but I just don't like anything enough

But look at how much pure joy this dude gets out of his gongs ócould gongs be right for me?
