Maine Album Reviews – BDN Culture Shock

The sweet-voiced Anna Lombard, formerly of Gypsy Tailwind, released in the late summer her debut full-length solo LP, “Head Full of Bells,” an accessible pop collection tinged with the country and blues that her previous band synthesized so well. Lombard has one of those voices that should be and rightfully is put front and center — a soulful, precise thing that has served her well and continues to do so on “Head Full of Bells.” It easily draws comparisons to fellow roots-pop artists like KT Tunstall or Brandi Carlile, from the country-rock of “They Want Us Dead” to the melodic kiss-off “Nothing Of Us Left.” Lombard worked on the album with songwriter and major label session musician Adam Agati, a Portland native who lends a polished sheen to songs like the catchy, guitar-driven “Waiting for Rescue,” or the sad but confident “Life Takes,” the latter of which could be heard on an Adele album.
