Jessica Pratt with special guest Jaye Bartell
Join WFMU in welcoming Jessica Pratt and Jaye Bartell to Monty Hall.
WE ALL WANT THE WORLD TO BE BEAUTIFUL.
We want scribes and songbirds to tell us soand sometimes they do and then it is. They point their pens and focus their lens where they will and surprise us to our soul. On Your Own Love Again is a record that does it to us, with songs from a spine-thrilling new place and a gifted young singer with her own musical logic.
Jessica Pratt's self-titled 2012 debut has been much-murmured about in the time between yesterday and today. People respond to the austere, pristine clarity of the performances, the gentle strength, marveling at how much comes from so little: just a voice and a guitar or two! They remark on the timeless nature of the songs and the voice, scrupulously informed by the folk-rock of ages past, but sung without bags (none in hand, nor beneath eyes). They speculate on just who is the personality behind this Jessica Pratt? It is hard not to respond to the sound of her music, not to want more right away.
Two years on, and Jessica's very new On Your Own Love Again is here for us, playing her further adventures in different pastures. After deep consideration, Jessica found new songs within her and an urgency to make another record, marked with a strong sense for rendering it exactly the way she heard it in her head, spending time with her tunes and crafting the smallest details. In this way, she truly was able to inhabit her own skin as a singer of her songs and make On Your Own Love Again the first Jessica Pratt album constructed to be an album.
On Your Own Love Again Jessica is fully alive in a space all her own; with isolation in the breeze, the sound resonant in the natural light and a gauze of clouds in the sky, under which she can relax, unwind and let herself be.
That's everything we want from Jessica Pratt On Your Own Love Again.
Jaye Bartell performs stark and soulful literary ballads in the tradition of Leonard Cohen, Nico, and John Cale.
