|Since he put out one of my favorite records of 2007, I thought I would make special mention that Sologne by Loney, Dear (Nils-Emil Svanangen) is being re-released domestically on Tuesday, September 25 by the Rebel Group. It’s really a great record, I recommend that you pick it up.|
Here’s a little bit of self promotion from Loney, Dear’s latest MySpace Bulletin:
FINALLY! the 2006 self released (Dear John Records) album SOLOGNE, is finally seeing a proper United States release on Tues Sept 25th through the Rebel Group.
