Tess Parks - Blood Hot

 Vinyl issue of Tess Parks 2013 Mazzy Star-esque debut. Tess Parks is a musician and photographer born and raised in Toronto. The granddaughter and daughter of musicians and an art school dropout, she moved to London at seventeen years of age to pursue music and to study photography. She has played as a solo act for the past four years between the UK and Canada. After overstaying her visit in London, she reluctantly moved back to Toronto on the advice from one of her heroes. Once home, she put together her amazing psychedelic backing band of "sexy and talented musicians", The Good People, in late 2012, compromising gifted guitarist Andrew McGill, bassist Thomas Huhtala and her record's producer and multi-instrumentalist Thomas Paxton-Beesley. Tess recorded her album of scuzzy, downbeat psychedelia (think Mazzy Star crossed with The Brian Jonestown Massacre) across the summer.
