    Tess Parks, LODRO, Heavy Birds @ Baby's All Right Is your favorite Brian Jonestown Massacre song is "Anenome," the groovy Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request track that featured lead vocals by Mara Keagle? If so, you're likely gonna dig I Declare Nothing , a new album by Canadian singer Tess Parks made with BJM domo Anton Newcombe. While Tess' voice leans a little more towards Courtney Love's rasp than Keagle's smoky coo, there's a very similar vibe going on here.

  5. The Dandy Warhols - "You Are Killing Me"Read the original story w/Photo

    Jan 8, 2016 | Stereogum

    Veteran Portland drug-rockers the Dandy Warhols are, I would argue, the most underrated American Britpop band of all time. 13 Tales From Urban Bohemia ? Classic album! And I always objected to the whole premise of the documentary Dig - that the Dandys were the pop pretenders while the Brian Jonestown Massacre were the troubled geniuses - because I always thought that the Dandys were, in every possible sense, the better band.

    Dec 13, 2015 | Sunday Herald

    Thanks to an arresting voice that lies somewhere between Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval and Jessica Larrabee from Brooklyn's skeletal blues duo She Keeps Bees, 20something Toronto native Tess Parks was initially signed to Alan McGee's 359 Music label and earlier this year released I Declare Nothing, a well-received collaboration with Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe. This vinyl- and digital-only release marks the British debut of her 2013 solo album, an 11-strong collection of woozy, pared-back psychedelic blues turning on a mixture of Cramps-style riffing and barely-there guitar parts that add atmosphere but not much else.
