    ‘Dresses’ is the follow up album to 2010’s well received ‘Little Me Will Start A Storm’.

    The band hail from Portland, Oregon, USA and have been the project of singer and songwriter Ritchie Young since 2003.

    The vinyl format is limited to 500 copies and includes an artwork print and a CD copy of the album.

    The album had an array of well known producers and mixers working on it, such as Doug Jenkins (Portland Cello Project), Tony Lash (Elliott Smith / Dandy Warhols), Chris Funk (The Decemberists) and artists Kelly Blair Bauman and Peter Broderick.

    ‘Dresses’ is a spectacular and moving piece of work. Employing piano, cello, flugelhorn, vibraphone, dulcimer, banjo, belle plates and, perhaps most affectingly of all, some dazzling choral arrangements.

    The album evokes comparisons to such contemporaries as The Mountain Goats, Grandaddy and The Decemberists.

    Despite their name, Loch Lomond hail from Portland, Oregon in the US and this is their first release for Chemikal Underground.

    ‘Little Me Will Start A Storm’ is the follow up to their second album ‘Paper The Walls’, which was released in 2007.

    The band originated as the solo project of singer / songwriter Ritchie Young in 2003 but has since involved a rotating stream of over 30 musicians.

    The album has an array of well known producers and mixers at the helm: Tucker Martine (REM / The Decemberists), Tony Lash (Elliott Smith / Dandy Warhols), Kevin Robinson (Viva Voce), Adam Selzer (M Ward / Norfolk & Western) and Jeff Stuart Saltzman (Stephen Malkmus / Sleater Kinney).

    The band provided music for Danny MacAskill’s recent film ‘Way Back Home’, resulting in a significant boost to their international profile - the film has over 13 million views.

    Loch Lomond’s music has an artful, understated melodicism, their songs redolent of early REM, the psychfolk musings of Mercury Rev and the multi-instrumental fables of The Decemberists.
