The Jigsaw Seen "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"

Long-running LA pop group The Jigsaw Seen released a Christmas single back in 1989, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” c/w “Jesus of Hollywood.” Fifteen years later, they’ve decided to reissue the record as a gift to their fans. The songs are all nice, and have that “College Rock” sound that was popular back in the late 1980s and early, pre-Nirvana 1990s—in other words, these songs have a They Might Be Giants/REM feel. Both songs sound really nice, and it’s an even nicer little treat for those of you who happen to like indie-rock bands making Christmas records. As you’d expect, this isn’t earth-shattering, but it’s still a nice little record.
