Lomelda is the stage name of Texas-born singer and guitarist Hannah Read. The distinction between Lomelda and Hannah is one she wrestles with on her new album, called “Hannah.” She has a remarkable voice and her songs can swing from softly sung ballads to roaring guitar-based rock; and those songs can cover topics like family, music, creativity, and most notably on this new album, Hannah Read. The album is called Hannah, and in addition to “Hannah’s Sun,” we get tracks called “Hannah Happiest” and “Hannah Please.” But we also get the apparently definitive song title “It’s Lomelda,” a tune that namechecks favorite bands like Low, Yo La Tengo, and Frank Ocean. Lomelda (Hannah?) plays some her inventively-arranged songs, solo, remotely.
