Loney, Noir was recorded from the 4th of February to the morning of the 13th of August 2005 in Bromma Stockholm and Jonköping. Say hello to the hard days, say hello to the loneydear. Summer night and I did not hope, for something I could not have. I’ll steal your photographs just to know I was not dreaming this time. Dear John! And then you lied to me. You said you knew where you were going to. Sit real still and wait, ‘til summer. Enclosed is a coupon for a free mp3 download of the complete album from Subpop.
Loney, Dear is the somewhat confusing nom de pop of Swedish st and audio homecooking expert Emil Svanängen. His voice is reedy, high-pitched, and strong, so it's understandably the focal point of these quaint, home-recorded orchestral-pop numbers. Loney, Noir is technically the indie-pop ingénue's fourth full-length, but as his first three albums were originally released in Sweden as CD-Rs, it's understandable if even devotees of chamber-pop and/or the fertile Scandinavian music scene were ignorant of this genuine talent prior to this album's. Loney, Noir" was my first introduction to the artist, and I must say that I'm fairly impressed. In the relatively short time that the album runs, I found myself captivated, impressed, and wanting to take that trip to Sweden more than ever. By the end of it, however, I was at peace. Loney, Noir" is one excellent album.
Loney Dear are living proof of this. He’s been quietly releasing music independently for years, Loney Noir is album number four from him and it shows that there's much more to Swedish music than ABBA, Europe or Ace Of Bass.
