No top picks this week. I had faint hope for that new Smashing Pumpkins album but, somehow, it's even worse than the last one, despite actually having "Beguiled" on it this time. And now I'm getting emails about some wrestling tour they're doing (which does not match the sound of the album at all). What the hell is going on with this band?

Anyway, feel free to let me know what I've overlooked or should be otherwise checking out in the comments.
