Jigsaw Days

by The Well Wishers

Jigsaw Days is a bold, bombastic, and supremely melodic platter of pure power pop … blending modern pop sensibilities of the Posies, Matthew Sweet, Nada Surf, Guided By Voices with the familiar 80s jangle of bands like R.E.M., The Connells, and Husker Du.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Well Wishers frontman and brainchild Jeff Shelton made a concerted effort to “get back to the basics” with Jigsaw Days – the 4th full-length release from this San Francisco-based power pop collective. While 2007’s How I Won The War saw the band exploring more 80s post-punk textures, Jigsaw Days is return to form with pure pop melodies, warm chiming guitars, and swirling vocal harmonies that punctuate Shelton’s penchant for elaborate pop arrangements. In fact, the classic power pop elements of Jigsaw Days are not far removed from Shelton’s former band Spinning Jennies – one of the more revered and long-lived bands in the San Francisco scene through 90’s and early 2000’s.

Recording most of the album tracks at his home studio allowed Shelton the freedom and flexibility to experiment, embellish, explore, and re-take after re-take until everything was completely perfect. With drum tracks provided by former Spinning Jennies drummer Nick Laquintano, Jigsaw Days is a bold, bombastic, and supremely melodic platter of pure
power pop … blending modern pop sensibilities of the Posies, Matthew Sweet, Nada Surf, Guided By Voices with the familiar 80s jangle of bands like R.E.M., The Connells, and Husker Du.
