Yes, track number 3 from the proposed 44-song, 11-EP “album” Teargarden by Kaleidyscope has been released. This one, called “A Stitch in Time,” is about as left-field as the title suggests. There’s sitar over acoustic indie-pop flair, as well as swirls of guitar here and there that float around the simple ditty. Think the lighter side of Mellon Collie if Billy had pulled a Beatles trip to India. This is easily the best of the three so far. I haven’t be able to say this about a Pumpkins song in a long, long time: It’s beautiful. And Good. Could the Pumpkins, at least in terms of songwriting, really have returned?
