"Dear Professor overflows with romance and whimsy, thanks in no small part to singer-guitarist Adam Powell’s allegorical lyrics and the band’s lush arrangements (vibraphone, banjo, accordion, horns, etc.).
But songs about distance (“One Thousand and Eleven Miles Away”), growth (“Underwater Savior Part Two”) and faith (“Mystery”) show emotional depth beyond fairytale romance. Play this when you propose to your cardigan-wearing, Neutral Milk Hotel-loving significant other."
