CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound

Pratt has provided for herself a successful introduction to the world, where her unpredictable melodies and vocal tics proudly display strengths and weaknesses with unwavering confidence

75
Pitchfork

Pratt is a young songwriter with a decidedly old soul and a voice that balances spry sweetness with husky grit.

60
PopMatters

Pretty much the only sounds that appear on Jessica Pratt are Pratt and a closely-recorded acoustic guitar, picking spidery melodies and pleasing circles that form the backbone of so many post-‘60s folk songs.

This debut is better than expected - very little to separate it in terms of song writing quality with the following two albums.

It’s more sparse and the production is basic but it doesn’t hold the album back - if anything it adds to the timeless feel and kids us into believing we’re listening to a hidden folk relic from the mid ‘70s.

I find her timeless aesthetic to be more developed on her second album; her self-titled project is full of wistful melodies and lo-fi production. It is very raw, and I appreciate that, but I like it when she marries her strange vocals with warmer production.
