PS I Love You - Death Dreams
Posted by Guest Writer on Wed, 06 Jun 2012.
Death Dreams is the second LP album from Canadian Indie duo PS I Love You, following their 2010 release 'Meet Me at the Muster Station'.
The album begins promisingly with the title track 'Death Dreams', an atmospheric instrumental piece with shades of dark and light followed later in the album by 'Death Dreams II', its more schizophrenic counterpart.
PS I Love You use a mix of low end fuzz, echoing guitars and rolling drum beats combined with the mournful vocal styling of singer/guitarist Paul Saulnier.
The repetition of jangling, echoing guitars, constant drum fills and the fact that almost every song is the same tempo leave little to be desired here and make it very difficult to comment on tracks individually. Excluding the two instrumentals, only 'Red Quarter' and 'Saskatoon' offer a change in pace.

By far the best and most listenable track on the album is Saskatoon, a compelling, melodic number with emotion.
For a more varied sample of the bands talents I recommend trying their 'Figure It Out' EP (2011) which collects a number of PS I Love You's EPs and singles.
