With a flood of new albums on our radar the past several months, it's easy to sometimes temporarily put to the side or forget about an album that came out in early '09. Back in January the Swedish singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Loney Dear left us with a big impression with his latest disc, Dear John, that was a warm, and richly textured, pop masterpiece. The album which was in early consideration for a best of list for '09, has popped back up on our radar, as Loney Dear just released a new video for the track, " I Was Only Going Out", which debuted on Pitchfork the other day.
In other Loney news, his label Polyvinyl has announced plans to reissue the classic Loney Dear album, The Citadel on Nov. 24th.
