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, melodic assault from start to finish an album that reveals some of the best songs in the Well Wishers' prolific cadre.
