Priya Thomas


Priya Thomas has been a critical favorite for more than a decade; regarded as a true original flying under the Canadian radar. Her latest record, Blood Heron, was released on October 28th 2008 through Sunny Lane Records in Canada. The Blood Heron recording is a collection of smoldering, unpolished love songs more immediate and intimate than anything Thomas has yet released. It's a lo-fi suite of missed mutes, tape stretch, and first takes. Recorded at home to half inch 8 Read more on Last.fm
Priya Thomas has been a critical favorite for more than a decade; regarded as a true original flying under the Canadian radar. Her latest record, Blood Heron, was released on October 28th 2008 through Sunny Lane Records in Canada. The Blood Heron recording is a collection of smoldering, unpolished love songs more immediate and intimate than anything Thomas has yet released. It's a lo-fi suite of missed mutes, tape stretch, and first takes. Recorded at home to half inch 8, the raw mix reveals every creak of the floors, the buzz and hum of warp-necked guitars, and the sound of musicians stumbling around a tiny room.

A record meshed somewhere between the worlds of Sufjan Stevens, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, Thomas sounds something like Grace Slick banging pots and pans or Mazzy Starr accompanied by warped ukeleles, clattering tambourines and plunky guitars. Written while on the road, the arrangements on Blood Heron are threadbare with wide-open spaces that reflect the slow, psychedelic pace of traveling cross-country in a van. Thomas wrote much of the record in hotel rooms, borrowing the odd spare guitar, and carrying around a little black notepad. The result is a collection of love songs, unadorned and simple, that sweep the continent, exhuming the Canadian landscape, and the deep American South. ----- Known for her incendiary live performances, Priya Thomas released her first full-length album in 1996, and since then, has shared the stage with the likes of Radiohead, John Cale, The Fall, and The Dears.

Her 2006 release, You and Me Against the World Baby, received rave reviews for its eye-of-the-storm sonic assault, and its rich, imaginative literacy. Vancouver’s Georgia Straight ranked Thomas’s album alongside releases by Neko Case and Cat Power as one of 2006’s Top Ten Records of the Year. Read more on Last.fm.
