In Praise of "Have Another Pillow"...
The Woodstock Times
"SOUL NOUVEAU" Written by Zach Shaw
Musicians are people too, and as such, they must take into consideration the palette of sound they choose to color their songs with. Often times, especially in pop music, there is a tendency to stay within the lines and paint by number. By its very nature, popular music may not be the best genre for musical experimentation, but that doesn't mean the envelope is pushed to the limit. On the contrary, in order for pop music to grow as a valid form of expression, it requires artists with versatility and depth. Like a popular painting, a great pop song requires an original, independent vision that is instantly recognizable by the audience.
Blueberry has exactly that-a fresh musical perspective that is pushing pop into new territory with a revamped attitude where anything goes and everything works. This locally based project is fronted by the multi-talented Gwen Snyder who hails from the fashionably ahead-of-their-time pop/rock project Johnny Society. With Blueberry, Snyder has carved a musical identity all her own and a musical niche that music fans are starting to notice. With a golden voice and brilliant instrumentation, Snyder is making a large impact on a growing movement in pop music.
New Soul is what they call it-a message delivered deeply deeply from the heart over an intricate pattern of groove. Sometimes this stylistic tendency can come off as revitalized vintage material, by the production and melodic approach are way too contemporary to dismiss as reheated funk. The aim of these projects is obviously not to resucitate classis elements of pop but to reconstruct and juxtapose them to create "Soul Nouveau".
In the past, the contemporary soul torch has been passed on to artists such as the Cardigans, who share a lot in common with Blueberry's sugary coating and lush instrumentation. But no comparison ultimately makes much sense alongside the dynamic range of sounds that
Blueberry skillfully brings into the mix. Even the most energetic songs are deviously subtle in their harmonic approach. There is an amazing feeling of authenticity and craftsmanship, especially in the down-tempo moments where Snyder's voice goes heavenward with soulful aplomb.
Hightlights abound from Blueberry's upcoming LP, "Have Another Pillow." There's a priceless progressive lounge-pop hook on "Elevate Her" which gets capped off by a jazzy four-part harmony with a graceful vocal bend at the end. The song then slides into a deeper groove as guitar and flute solos kick off simultaneously as a brilliant outro. "Honey Bee" is three minutes of sexy soft funk featuring intricate instrumentation over a simple beat from an analog drum machine. Unpredictable rhythms and a triumphant brass section brush up against a power-disco beat in the driving "Dragon Hill". Another welcome departure from format is "White Flag Lullaby", a beautiful but haunting piano ballad. Expect all this and more when Blueberry takes the stage at the Joyous Lake this Friday night and check out Blueberry's official website at https://www.tradebit.com.
