Canada Review: Lindsay Bellows “Wake to Dream”

LINDSAY BELLOWS – Wake To Dream

Linday Bellows 2017

LINDSAY BELLOWS - Wake To Dream

LINDSAY BELLOWS –
Wake To Dream

Locating the spirit of a city, Californian songstress embraces the whole wide world.

Fiercely independent, Lindsay Bellows usually treads the stage alone, and she conceived this, her debut EP, as an a cappella album. Given an instrumental layer, it turned out better – by focusing the light on the young artist’s tremendous talent and on the many surprises that her songs are comprised of. Joie de vivre oozing out of the record’s cover may say nothing about Linday’s music’s bluesy slant, yet that’s what made “Wake To Dream” so peculiarly perfect.

The handclaps-propelled, spiritual “Wake Up” could induce a blissful trance, but it’s here that Bellows’ lungs reveal their real power, and the soulful musings catch on universal jive, while guitar and bass caress and tickle the simple, if infectious, rhythm and intricate, multi-tracked vocals. There’s no need for transcendence, though, as the lighter beats of “Part Life” make a jungle groove contemporary without ever losing the artist’s integrity to the “tribe” she’s claiming to belong to.

Gracious in “Wild And Free” which can easily lend itself to hip hop treatment, her music is also intimate and sultry; even more so in the bossa-smeared “Simple Gifts” whose engaging lyrics and melody must attract Paul Simon’s attention. The title of “Slow Steady” perfectly reflects its pace: building gradually from unhurried piano chords up, Lindsay’s lines on this piece are stacked carefully, yet precariously, to create an aural pyramid where the melody is rolling over voice loops – that’s why Bellows is self-sufficient on-stage – before her stately walk is turned into a mesmerizing parade of passion.

“I am exactly where I’m supposed to be – perfect place and perfect time,” sings Lindsay, and indeed, her time has come.

Let It Rock Review: Birdseed “Not Out of Time”

sticker-birdseed-3x3

“Frisky rockers from Frisco tune into temporal vibe to turn all things terminal into the eternal.

What do you do when you’re in for a battle of the bands and you need a singer you don’t have? Find a kindred spirit and spread wings together! What do you do when you learn the singer has an incurable decease? Make the most of your time while those wings can hold you! That’s the atmosphere which makes this EP – available as a vinyl record and digital download as if to stress its transience for posterity – so special, and the atmosphere is as far removed from the gloom as possible.

A jolly jangle with a spring in its sunkissed step is a thread running through these five songs despite the variety of moods they demonstrate to allow the septet strut and shine, from the rousing riffs and release of the title track to “More Than I Needed The Truth” whose country inflections add sadness to the mix. The drift gets reflective in the cross-hairs of funky guitars and bubbling keyboards that carry Kerry Landreth’s voice into “Next Trip Around The Sun” where the group’s “Rumours” influences come to light, but at the same time there’s their sax-smoothed edge revealed for all to revel in, even though a piano ripple of “I Want You To Know” – a message from the vocalist to her young daughter – pours poignancy on the piece’s honeyed harmonies.

Yet, opening the doors for optimism, the choir voices of “We Can Do It” – co-written by the aforementioned 9-year-old – contradict the cocksure possibility outlined here, just because the ensemble have happened, right on time. Pick up the seeds and spread the news, then, until it’s too late.”
