14 years between solo albums is not something most artists can get away with, but former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha is not most artists. He’s a busy guy, collaborating with other reputable artists and scoring films and such. 1998’s Let It Come Down was kinda twangy, less rockin’ than the Pumpkins’ altrock we were used to. “To Who Knows Where” is poppier, kinda New Wavey at times, with mellow charm by the bucket load.
