PS I Love You with Army Girls and Most People

Toronto based indie music organization, Wavelength closed their 12 chapter with the a stellar lineup at the Garrison on Sunday, February 19th with P.S I Love You, Burning Love, Army Girls, MoTEM, and Most People.

Most People appeared on the stage as early as 9:30 p.m, however, to my surprise, the venue was quickly filled out with fans to witness the act. The duo showcased fun drums and maneuvered several gears at once while pumping up beats from the mac, which took the audience to a milky way of infectious melodies. Continuous toe-tapping led to a dance party in my shoes for the entire set. 

Army Girls hit on the stage as the third band of the night, another duo performing that night. They deployed solid guitar jamming and pulsing drumbeats. That's all it took for the duo to craft such rich yet raw sounds, while floating impeccably with Carmen Elle's vigour and aesthetic voice. It hooked me right away from the beginning to the end, while ogling the stage not to miss any moment of the prominent performance and it was definitely my highlight of the night.

Kingston’s beloved pop rock sensation, PS I Love You at last took over the stage after four other performances, which seemed to be a long wait. The appearance further got delayed for another 20 minutes due to technical difficulties. By the time the band showed up on the stage, I couldn't help experiencing some exhaustion. Yet it was worth the wait to witness new tunes from their sophomore album, Muster Sessions, which is currently available for free download. The set list of the night, in fact, consisted mostly from the new album. The new addition to the band the bassist/synth flourished the sounds of Paul Saulnier. As much as I loved listening to the new tunes from the album, I have to admit that I missed witnessing some tracks from the last album, Meet Me at the Muster Station, especially their gimmick of Saulnier's mind-blowing guitar solo.
