Tonight's Concert Pick: P.S. I Love You at Kung Fu Necktie - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Paul Saulnier—singer, guitarist, and benefactor of initials for PS I Love You—is a man of few words. Though his band’s name looks like something you’d find on one of Deep Elm’s late-’90s Emo Diaries compilations, the duo’s 2010 debut album, Meet Me At The Muster Station, is actually a reverb-heavy blend of indie rock and metal-inspired guitar shredding. Despite the Ontario-based group’s mostly unintelligible lyrics, Saulnier manages to pack more meaning into his soft-voiced yells than any angst-ridden, Hot-Topic-shopping kid yelping about the woes suburbia could ever manage. The emotion discerned within Saulnier’s blurry vocals comes as a surprise considering the guy’s burly, bearded, Great North, I-will-kick-your-ass-in-ice-hockey aesthetic. Mix this image with the songs’ subtle narratives and you get an introverted version of overt anger, frustration, and all things emotional. P.S. I Love You performs with Casiokids and Curious Buddies at 8 p.m. at Kung Fu Necktie; tickets to the 21+ show are $10. —Marielle Mondon
