I've been talking about Ann Lynn for some time now. They're one of those bands that I can't believe has not made it big yet. I've also mentioned their new album before, but I think it deserves a proper review, so here it is.
Odds and Ends is the newest release from Big Bear, California's own indie rock phenomenon Ann Lynn. While it's the band's first full length release, the material here covers the last seven or so years of the band's career. Long term fans will recognize popular demo-era songs such as Small Town Dreams and Pondering, and yet even their most ardent followers have not yet heard the brand new tracks included here. However, despite the range of years represented on the album, Odds and Ends sounds like a cohesive album from start to finish.
The songs themselves range from alt country to folk to outright rock and roll, all with that indie rock flavor that songwriter Josh Pool is so adept at crafting. My favorite tracks include Treasures, Sons and Daughters, Endless, and Trainwreck, but honestly they're all so good it's hard to pick favorites.
I can't recommend this album enough. If you haven't picked it up yet, it's available digitally on iTunes, and physical copies are available at the following links:
