Lovely music with old world feel - great for a mellow afternoon

This album is one of my favorite ones to listen to in the car.  The lyrics and melodies composed by Zach Condon and his band make me feel like I'm living in a completely different place and time.  Track #2, Nantes, is the best song on the album, but they're all enjoyable.
Cover to The Flying Cup Club
