This short and punchy album review of ‘Death Dreams’ by the fuzzy guitar drum duo PS I Love You, is the first in a weekly series of reviews on fresh new Canadian music. Since this is only my second week in my new home country, I am not totally sure yet, but going on first impressions there is a lot of new music here to explore. The Indiefuzz Canadian gang has its work to do but first back to the review…
PS I Love You are a two piece psychedelic low-fi fuzz rock band from Kingston, Ontario. I first came across this band when listening to my weekly CBC Radio3 Podcast and it definitely caught my ear. The songs on ‘Death Dreams’ are raw uncut and talk about heavy emotional stuff. The lyrics blend in perfectly with the fuzzed up guitar, drums, bass and some other twisted instruments creating some short and some what longer songs with and without guitar solo’s. I haven’t seen them live yet but if they’re ever in Vancouver I will be there for sure, front and center! I’ll even bring along my sander and do the start my favorite tune ‘Toronto’ with the band. When listening to the album it sounds as if PS I Love You are playing right in front of you and I imagine it is even better live.
Oh, and btw PS I Love You are with ‘Death Dreams’ on the Polaris Prize 2012 long list. And yes this Polaris thing will be one my of sources for my weekly Canadian fuzz update. Go and listen to this full length band camp album stream and decide for yourself.
Upcoming focus track will be ‘Don’t Go’ and not this official video of ‘Sentimental Dishes’ which appears to be a live favorite.
And if your interested in story and inspiration behind ‘Death Dreams’ in this video interview with CHARTattack Paul Saulnier he tells all about his twisted dreams.
