JIGSAW SEEN, THE: For the Discriminating Completist: CD

May 31, 2017

The Jigsaw Seen has never crossed my radar until now, despite being active since 1988. This disc of alternate versions of their stuff is a great introduction: sun-soaked and painstakingly crafted shimmering gems that evoke British Invasion pop and XTC (especially vocally in the case of the latter). Right up the alley of any and all Guided By Voices fans out there. –Michael T. Fournier (Burger)
