Page France, with Jason Carmona, Jetpack, Dizzy Pilot and Three Fantastic

Hello, Dear Wind, the new CD by Baltimore's Page France, amounts to a heroic dose of ragged, Jesus-loving indie pop. Unlike much "Christian rock," this is refreshingly non-preachy. In fact, main Page Frenchman Michael Nau's songs are uniformly vulnerable, varied, catchy and wide-eyed - he never soft-pedals his rapturous religious feelings, but he doesn't shove 'em down your throat, either. Musically, it's slightly trippy in a Madcap Laughs-meets-Jeff Mangum's-carefree-cousin kind of way. May the Good Lord be praised!
