May 25, 2006|By SAM SESSA

Notable --Hello Dear Wind, the band's sophomore album on Fall Records, drew widespread praise from indie fans and press - much to Nau's surprise. A new double EP comes out this fall: Pear, a disc full of '60s pop and soul pieces, and Sister Pinecone, a compilation of previous songs.

Quotable --"We spent a lot of time technically with the [new] record and tried to capture a sound rather than adhering to a theme throughout," Nau said. "It was just kind of a relaxation period where we could stray away from everything we've done thus far and have an opportunity to put something out there that's a lot different from what we were doing."

Hear Page France at 10 p.m. today at the Talking Head, 203 Davis St. $7. Call 410-962-5588 or visit talkingheadclub.com. For more information about the band, go to myspace.com/pagefrance.
