Paperbag Bio

PS I Love You have been extremely busy over the past couple of years having already released two acclaimed 7″ singles. The first was a split 7″ with friend Diamond Rings in August of 2009. Earlier this year, the band released a 7″ for ‘Starfield’ before wowing audiences at their Canadian Music Week and NXNE showcases. Recently, the band has shared the stage with the hottest indie acts including label-mates Born Ruffians as well as Japandroids and Wavves.

PS I Love You was originally the solo project for multi-instrumentalist Paul Saulnier who has performed in everything from a country-rock band to an improvised noise duo. PS I Love You was intended to be his experimental, pop music outlet using guitar looping pedals, keyboards with some gadgets and gimmicks. The addition of Benjamin Nelson on drums suddenly transformed PS I Love You’s little songs into mini, soaring rock anthems.

Manic's blurbs

Holiday Shores: Songwriter Nathan Pemberton grew up on Holiday Shores Court, a two-block road located on the Florida panhandle. With breaking waves and sandy beaches nearby, he began playing piano at age seven and picked up the guitar several years later, leading to a number of memberships in teenage bands and college groups. The geography of his home turf continued to inspire his writing, though, and he launched Holiday Shores in his early twenties, rounding out the band’s lineup with Josh Martin, Ryan O'Malley, and Peejay Perez de Alejo. The group made its studio debut in 2009 with the release of Columbus’d the Whim, a collection of lo-fi, summery pop songs.

Ghostwaves: Hartford, CT (via Ibiza, Spain) dream pop/chillwave.

Darlingside is a Northampton, MA-based "string rock" quintet that is exploding onto stages across the Northeast. Together only a year, they have already played to packed houses from Portland to D.C., headlining such prestigious venues as Iron Horse, Brooklyn Bowl and the Paramount Theatre. Lush five-part harmonies, classical cello-violin duets and compelling break-beats characterize the band's sound. Darlingside keeps audiences on their toes with exuberant stage presence, spontaneous a cappella, frequent instrument switches, mind-boggling covers and a widely eclectic, cross-genre blend of original material.
