Loney Dear on Daytrotter

I’m sort of ashamed to admit that we didn’t make it in time for Loney Dear’s set when Emil Svanangen and his band opened for Andrew Bird on Feb. 14 in Tucson.

We caught a couple songs and I’ve since downloaded the 2009 release Dear John on Polyvinyl (get it at eMusic).

Svanangen recently recorded a Daytrotter session and it includes one of the Dear John standouts, I Was Only Going Out, a slow-building, layered bit of goodness with some expert whistling (no wonder Andrew Bird likes him).
