CRITIC REVIEWS

80
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.

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.

Today I learned this album existed! Even better than the follow up!

En esta era obsesionada con el sonido, que alguien saque un disco donde se oyen cuerdas mal pulsadas es un manifiesto. Lo importante es otra cosa. Eso sería normal hace 50 años, ahora es una joya.

Simple, acoustic tunes that unleash the warm affection and the honest need of a burning heart.
