These two bands are going to be at the wonderful Music Fest NW. Brainstorm is a high energy, two-man pop-rock group from Portland, OR. Their newest single release is called "Flat Earth" and if you don't get instantly hooked on it, well then we have different musical taste. Check out all their stuff here.
PS I Love You is another two man group coming from Kingston, Ontario. Though instead using the minimalist view of Brainstorm they use guitar loops like nobody's business. Awesome guitar riffs mixed with huge solos make for that great indie-rock sound. Check out the vid below and their Facebook here.
