PS I Love You @ BV/MFM Day Party @ Barbarella
"Band of the night goes to P.S. I Love You, a Canadian guitar-drums duo that delivered concise pop songs with epic guitar strokes. Paul Saulnier approximated the sound of three guitarists on his instrument, his galactic chords and dense note clusters threatening to explode his songs, while Benjamin Nelson banged out precisely orchestrated parts like a human drum machine." [Greg Kot]PS I Love You recorded a new single "Leftovers" with fellow Canadian Diamond Rings on guest vocals. The single is set for a physical release March 29 on Paper Bag Records. Download the song now above, and check out the full 7" 3-song tracklist, two b-sides included, below.
As we've mentioned, PS I Love You and Diamond Rings are on tour this month, and Diamond Rings (who were not originally announced on any of the NY dates) will be playing with PS I Love You on Wednesday March 30th at Mercury Lounge and on Thursday March 31 at Glasslands. Tickets are still on sale for Wednesday and Thursday
Both bands were just down at SXSW where PS I Love appeared at the BrooklynVegan & M For Montreal Free Saturday Day Party. A few shots from their set are in this post.
Earlier this month Diamond Rings released a video for "It's Not My Party." You can watch that below. All tour dates are down there too...
