((Page France)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Maryland's Page France play slightly twee (and slightly silly.. ok sorry, I mean "whimsical") pop in the same style as badass bands like Danielson, Anathallo, or Sufjan Stevens when he's at his most cutesy.

Their first album for Suicide Squeeze (Pedro the Lion, Chin Up Chin Up), Hello, Dear Wind, has been getting much critical acclaim, which still slightly baffles me. Not that Page France aren't good, I just never thought bands like these would be popular with the critics AND kids.

Chalk it up to the new burgeoning sing-a-long song scene. I guess it was only a matter of time before angst, aggression and rebellion in music turned into peace, love and kindness.
