• williams shift We Were Wanderers (CD, £12.95)

    label: Burnt Toast

    Williams Shift is a new project from Matthew Stephen Roessner of post-rockers Saxon Shore, and features the vocalist Jill Purdy. The band take their name from the baseball concept of the "Williams Shift" where defenders would align themselves to better field naturally pulled hits from Boston slugger Ted Williams. This is an ode to melody, love lost, remembrance, baseball, Ted Williams' legacy, and the universe, with a hefty dose of artistic license and imagination and the resulting existential and philosophical ramifications.
