PS I Love You add Fall/Winter tour dates + CMJ schedule

PS I Love You add Fall/Winter tour dates + CMJ schedule.

Toronto — PS I Love You have added dates to their already busy 2010 fall / winter tour schedule, in support of their critically acclaimed new album, Meet Me At The Muster Station (Paper Bag Records). The US tour is currently underway, with a stop on October 17th in Denver, CO at the Hi-Dive. From October 20th to 23rd, the band will visit New York, NY for multiple appearances at CMJ in New York City.

PS I Love You’s Meet Me At The Muster Station is a ten-track album and a relentless listen that grips and pulls the listener through just under thirty-minutes of squalling Marshall feedback, searing solos, soaring melodies and rock-steady beats and will surely be considered one of this year’s finest debuts. Meet Me At The Muster Station is available on CD, digital and limited-edition clear vinyl. Also, The PS I Love You EP is also available through iTunes and Paper Bag Digital and contains no material from the full length album.

PS I Love You have been extremely busy over the past couple of years having already released two acclaimed 7″ singles. The first was a split 7″ with friend Diamond Rings in August of 2009. Earlier this year, the band released a 7″ for ‘Starfield’ before wowing audiences at their Canadian Music Week and NXNE showcases. Recently, the band has shared the stage with the hottest indie acts including label-mates Born Ruffians as well as Japandroids and Wavves.
PS I Love You was originally the solo project for multi-instrumentalist Paul Saulnier who has performed in everything from a country-rock band to an improvised noise duo. PS I Love You was intended to be his experimental, pop music outlet using guitar looping pedals, keyboards with some gadgets and gimmicks. The addition of Benjamin Nelson on drums suddenly transformed PS I Love You’s little songs into mini, soaring rock anthems. On October 26th, PS I Love You heads back to eastern Canada for a week long tour with Diamond Rings.

“The odd-couple duo of Paul Saulnier (guitar/vocals) and Benjamin Nelson (drums) couch their considerable technical skill in a grungy garage-rock dressing, conveying palpably heartfelt emotion through mostly indecipherable yelping. And with Meet Me at the Muster Station, they’ve produced a compact debut that nonetheless feels momentously epic.” – [8.1/10] Pitchfork

“The result is an album that, despite its intensity, is never overbearing and, unlike some Canadian counterparts, never sacrifices the intensity of a song for over-reaching drama. Meet Me at the Muster Station is as complete a debut album as has been released by a Canadian band since Wolf Parade’s Apologies to the Queen Mary half-a-decade ago.” – Exclaim

“Saulnier and drummer Benjamin Nelson’s stellar full-length debut is a 30-minute dream of fast backbeats and soaring distortion that will quicken your heartbeat, and have you singing in nonsense tongues you don’t understand.” [5/5 STARS] – Eye Weekly

“This is a good one, though, pretty much fat-free and an album that actually gets better as it goes on. A real grower, to boot. Everything, in other words, that a debut album should be, and one that has going for it the added good fortune that it will remind dozens of music critics of a certain age of the American guitar bands they worshiped during the ’90s. Passionate press is almost assured. Don’t be surprised if Meet Me at the Muster Station becomes the next homegrown indie-rock record to find its way into the record bags of cool kids on both sides of the Atlantic.” – [3.5/4 STARS] – Toronto Star
“The result is a short, tight album without a moment wasted or a bad track. You’re safe throwing any of these songs on a mixtape.” – Coke Machine Glow
“At first glance PS I Love You may seem like just another two-piece lo-fi act in the vein of No Age or Japandroids, but these guys are mixing in a lot more of the pop aesthetic than their noisy brethren and excelling because of it. Maybe the Canadian influence has managed to rub off on them, there are moments where some BrokenSocial Scene and Wolf Parade seem to be coming through, but really this is something completely their own.” – [Top 10: Must See Acts of CMJ] – Pop Tarts Suck Toasted
“Count PS I Love You as the latest ass-kicking indie-rock band to come out of Canada.” – San Diego City Beat

“The collection kicks like Mascis off his Thorazine.” – San Diego Reader
“The Kingston, Ontario duo of Paul Saulnier and Benjamin Nelson are a few dates into their first U.S. tour, weathering the ups and downs of the road and bringing their clamorous caterwaul to the adoring masses. Their new record, Meet Me at the Muster Station, released last Tuesday on Paper Bag Records, is a deceptively r
efined burst of rock ‘n’ roll urgency, channeling the blood of Springsteen, the sweat of recent tourmates Japandroids, and the tears of Wolf Parade.” – SF

“Good goddamn if Saulnier doesn’t fire out some lovely, wall-of-sound hooks all over the place.” – The Stranger

“The rollicking rock of Kingston, Ontario, two-piece PS I Love You has resulted in one of this year’s finest debuts: Meet Me at the Muster Station is packed with mammoth guitar noise, barely contained vocal shouts, and heart-on-the-sleeve melodies as big as the Great White North.” – Portland Mercury
