Track Of The Day: Tess Parks - 'Someday'

Something I've been playing quite a lot recently is 'Blood Hot', the debut album from Tess Parks. Imagine a vocal that combines the hazy tone of Hope Sandoval with the static cool delivery of Kim Deal, fronting a desert rock-infused version of Oasis, with one of the Jesus And Mary Chain guesting on guitar every so often. The latter two bands seem to be apt influences on Parks, since she happens to be one of the first signings to former Creation boss Alan McGee's new label 359 Music. Parks was born and raised in Toronto and describes her songs as “lo-fi alternative drones with a hypnotic vibe”. 

“Tess is a true believer in the church of rock’n'roll. She’s got great taste and is really sharp. I got lucky again!“ - Alan McGee
