In this edition of Audiography, we feature reviews of the newest albums by Dead Can Dance— their first release in over 16 years, Anastasis; Warm Nothing, the summery pop debut from So Many Wizards; and En Yay Sah, Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang’s dance record blending the native rhythms of Sierra Leone with the dance ethos of New York and Europe. We also feature an interview with Billy Corgan, leader of the Smashing Pumpkins.
As the band prepared to release their latest album, Oceania, and head out on tour in support, Consequence of Sound caught up with Billy Corgan to talk about the legendary guitarist’s lengthy career, the band’s history, both good and bad, what went into the new album, the ninth in the band’s catalog, surviving this long despite all the naysayers, his involvement with professional wrestling, and what it’s like for the artist to actually be happy.
