Williams Shift "We Were Wonderers Instrumentals" Tape

from Flannelgraph Records

FGR052
Instrumental Version, co-release w/ Burnt Toast Vinyl
Standard 2xLP & CD versions also available at burnttoastvinyl.com

Williams Shift is a new project from Matthew Stone (Soporus, Saxon Shore) and Stephen Roessner (Saxon Shore, Small Signals). We Were Wonderers was recorded in various home studios and produced and mixed by Grammy award winning producer Roessner in conjunction with Stone. Williams Shift comes to life as an outgrowth of the poppiest elements incorporated in songs recorded as members of the instrumental band Saxon Shore combined with the concept of the “Williams Shift” where defenders would align themselves to better field naturally pulled hits from Boston slugger Ted Williams. The band blends soaring synth pop influences with an ever-expanding and spiraling Wiliams mythology and weight of the Cosmos. Captivated by theories of human cryonic suspension and the cagey details post-Williams mortem, the band embraces an actively dreaming suspended head and an alternate future of Williams’ awakening. His frozen head orbits the earth on a satellite with other cryonically frozen beings, a tragic Greek chorus echoing Williams’ thoughts through Brian Wilson-esque (musician, not reliever) melodies. This is an ode to melody, baseball, and the universe with a hefty dose of artistic license and imagination.
