you can actually hear the snare wires rattle under the drum, it's beautiful - whoever's producing this should absolutely be on board for the new SP to at least get JC's drums sounding good & not like the cheap electro set that reigned over Shiny I

song's tight as well, much more LBA than Parable

Red face When PARANOIA becomes INTEGRITY

Four years later called "Integrity" and the first of the four tracks on the new album HONOR:



https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimryan...8#64f3503a1924

...On September 25, 2020 Chamberlin will release the latest Jimmy Chamberlin Complex record Honor via MAKE Records.

The album once again sees the drummer teaming with Mohler, Catalano and guitarist Sean Wollstenhulme in addition to Adam Benjamin (keyboards), Ben Wendell (tenor sax) and Shane Endsley (trumpet) of eclectic fusion group Kneebody.

The new album’s first single “Humility,” premiered exclusively by Forbes below, finds Chamberlin at the top of his game. The song builds in intensity, a pummeling drum solo paired with fevered sax to close the song in a beautiful cacophony of sound.

“The song ‘Humility,’ like the rest of the record, is a document of an afternoon spent with good friends - in this case incredibly talented friends,” Chamberlin told Forbes of the new track. “The titles are representative, to me, of what we engage when we try to live at our highest level.”

...Each of the four new pieces on the Honor album - “Integrity,” “Humility,” “Service” and “Grace” - expand upon the idea of honor itself, concepts Chamberlin observed to be in perhaps short supply in modern society.



->"the record, is a document of an afternoon spent with good friends":
Were all the tracks already recorded four years ago...?

Bad ass. Guess that explains why the Paranoia video was down the past couple of weeks.

Sounds great. Somewhere in-between Life Begins Again and The Parable. Nice.

i would guess that it's mostly new stuff and he just felt Paranoia (or... the track previously known as paranoia ) fit sonically with the rest of it

not huge on this "title motif" but the music is bad-ass so whatev

Damn, the new track is great.

Album and song titles are so lame and hetero, though.

Jimmy Chamberlin on his New Complex Song, Social Media, and the Future of the Pumpkins
The Smashing Pumpkins drummer on working in 2020 and new Pumpkins music.
By*Jimmy Chamberlin*|*August 20, 2020

...We recorded*Honor*when the Pumpkins were in LA rehearsing, I think the beginning of 2018, that’s when we did the basic tracks. In regard to filling it out, whenever people were available, we inserted their parts. We probably had 20 ideas, and those four were the ones we worked on, and we kinda sat on them. It wasn’t about “Let’s make a record,” it was more just about having fun. Billy Mohler called up and was like, “I’ve been listening to these tracks, we should put these out!” People are so starved for music right now, and they’re good! So we put a little more effort into them, got them ready for prime time, and I’m really happy with it.

...“Humility” was one of the first tracks we finished [for the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex release], and the rest kinda sat dormant for a while. The record is just kind of a document of a moment in time. The titles are representative to me of what we engage when we try to live a higher ideal. Integrity, humility, service, grace. In this environment whether it’s political or social or economic, in my opinion, trying to raise kids with integrity and honor, there seems to be a little bit of a deficit. I didn’t have any good titles, and I thought, “What could the world use more of right now?” And that’s when the word “honor” came into my head. And the rest were components of that. What are the components of an honorable life? And how do we put those into play?

Playing with Mohler and Sean*Woolstenhulme*and Ben Wendell and Shane Endsley and Adam Benjamin… I’m excluding myself here. But these are guys who’ve made supreme dedications to their craft and done it in the most integral ways. These are some of the reasons we play together. At our best we share something in the context of these attributes.

Improvisation at its best is rooted in compassion. It’s rooted in a willingness to understand your environment and only supply things that are additive. It takes an incredible amount of humility to do that. Guys that are super verbose, or are just blowing chops all over songs just because they can… Go back and listen to Miles Davis solos, where there are four or five notes because that’s all the music needed! There’s a humility in that that’s born of compassion for the environment and born of the respect for the other individuals. That title is more of a musical title than people think. In this word of auto-quantification and narcissism and Instagram highlight reels of people’s lives, I think humility is something that often gets overlooked, right? Look at me doing this! Does everybody know I’m doing this? I disconnected from all that social media stuff a few months ago because it just stopped seeming real to me. I miss the drum videos from my buddies, but I just had to get off it because I got sick of people selling me their soap, right? What does it really get you? Nobody can really draw a straight line from that stuff to a better life, or better economics even. I’ll just stay off it and maybe post a picture of my cat every once in a while.**

https://soundcloud.com/user-77163715...rlin-complex-1




So the basic tracks were indeed recorded in early 2018 and Frank Catalano added later.
Was even „The Parable“ done at the same time...?


Sad to see Jimmy totally quit social media only to post pictures of his cats once in a while.

i tried embedding it when that article was first posted but they'd seemed to do quite job of keeping it exclusive to that one site - kudos on crackin' the code, an orgasm

I really like CYR, but I'd give everything to hear Billy singing some meaningful lyrics over a track like Grace. Just pure raw vocals.

This is better than either of the new SP songs by far. You have one of the best drummers ever and then you make him play a disco four on the floor beat? Lol
