Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
It's hard to believe that the stunning Meet Me at the Muster Station is PS I Love You's debut. Arriving fully formed, this Kingston duo delivers its catchy hooks with brute force, pummelling listeners with fuzzy guitars and thundering rhythms. And even if you won't be able to sing along with frontman Paul Saulnier's strangled yelps, songs like "Facelove" and "2012" will be stuck in your head for weeks. Savage noise freak-outs have never sounded quite so palatable.
