Album Review

All the reasons why you fell in love with Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea are the same reasons why you should check out Hello, Dear Wind, the second offering from Baltimore's Page France. Singer/songwriter Michael Nau fronts the merrymaking collective with his boyish sweetness and spotless vocal delivery, and that alone will make your indie rock heart swoon ten times over. Nau does not pretend to be another worldly poetic troubadour wise beyond his years; everyone already knows that such a title belongs solely to Conor Oberst.

Page France write simple songs for the daydreamer in everyone. Hello, Dear Wind will be your voice of love and luck, if you let it.

Page France's sophomore effort, Hello, Dear Wind, arrived in fall 2005; it...
