Loney, Dear – Loney Blues

There is a really good free compilation you’ll have to check out from Something In Construction to celebrate 100 releases at the label. A niggling point though before we get into another round of our default effusiveness, the mp3s are really badly tagged on the download – hard to understand given all the effort that must have gone into making such a rich and diverse collection. That aside there is much to savour from the likes of Memory Tapes, MNDR, the Silent League, Houses and our favourite Loney, Dear. We were wondering what Emil Svanängen would do next and it seems he’s upped sticks from Sub Pop and moved back to SIC. That all hardly matters though when Emil writes the sweetest saddest songs this side of Grandaddy and ‘Loney Blues’ (sounding particulary Peter Cetera-y this time, not that Emil would emote about the glory of love) from his yet untitled new album is no different. It’s back to that post-teary tumbling sigh for us then. KD
