Say gnfti, how's your falsetto doing? Why, I'm glad you ask! Here's a Loney, dear cover.

Well this song sure didn't let me down. Your falsetto is great. You didn't sound like a girl, well maybe just a bit during the back ups.

I don't know that band, gonna have to check it out. Thanks!

I was all, like, "Wow, background falsetto, woopty-doo,", and then, BLAMMO!
Very cool.

How wonderfully earnest you sound. Fantastico!

I've recently discovered Loney Dear while listening to a french late night radio program which features artists covering their own songs in a solo setting. I was lucky enough to get a recording of the session and it's the only stuff I've been listening to for some weeks now when I'm driving my car (since I'm not going to get disturbed then). Great cover !

well, good news : it was on dime for a while. Do you use a tracker ? (ttd, tapecity, dimeadozen) - If you do, I could reseed the show anytime. If you don't, email me your adress, I'd be pleased to send you a copy by snail mail.

Nice! Another one for the playlist!

I have no experience with Dime, nicolin. If you've got a copy and it's not too much trouble, could you upload it to say Senduit?

(Feel free to email me.)

Wow. There are some really ... There are these musicians on this site ... You and some others on mefi.music are ...

I don't know how to fully depart a description of my feelings about how potent some of you are as musicians. But every time I remember to click the "Music" link I am dumbfounded by the sheer raw force of emotion I encounter.

It is a dream of a small back alley in a nondescript distant village. The cobbles and break-shoe streets slick and wet with grey-sky-depression-cum-rain and I am walking alone.

My soles are clumsy on the unfamiliar stones. My progress is slow. The windows are shuttered and paint cracked. And an ancient man dressed as the mariner is pacing slowly up the twisted way.

And cross from the morning bells through the chapel I can hear a banjo refrain a voice, or an acapella sad and lonely. And I stop and remember that some times five bucks spent is of eminence far greater than five bucks kept.

ps - i like electronic and piano and guitar and the rest too. they just didn't fit in a comment already too long.

Saw Loney, dear yesterday at the electric picnic festival here in Ireland on the basis of this cover. Cheers for pointing me in their direction!
