Notes

Combining sharp, spare songwriting interspersed with letters narrated over instrumental pieces, Letters from a Flying Machine works as a narrative whole and is the most complete statement Mulvey has yet made as a writer. It begins and ends with references to Yeats, and covers baseball, astrophysics, mortality, and time, ending with a Gershwin tune. Featuring fan favorites “Kids in the Square”, “Mailman”, and “Vlad the Astrophysicist”.
