PS I Love You - Meet Me At The Muster Station
Starting life as a solo project for Paul Saulnier, the intention was for PS I Love You to be a gimmick laden, experimental pop vehicle. Quite how the addition of drummer Benjamin Nelson turned that into the grunged up, garage rock behemoth they have become is anyone's guess but boy, it's good that they did. The slow-burning, classic grunge style of the two-part title track bookend this engaging collection of fuzzed up power pop that, at a refreshingly short thirty minutes, doesn’t release its grip until the final chords have faded away. The meaning and nature of the lyrics may have a tendency to be washed away in a sea of unrelenting noise, as on ‘Breadends’ and ‘2012’, but, quite frankly, it doesn’t matter as the sheer ferocity and energy on display makes them a luxury you can easily do without. This is a startlingly good debut. No PS required, and a band you will fall in love with immediately.
