Jessica Pratt, On Your Own Love Again

jessicapratt

Californian singer-songwriter Jessica’s second album is a collection of timeless folk which could, quite frankly, have been made at any time in the last 50 years.
There’s very little to it except the important stuff – gorgeous melodies and Ms Pratt’s lissom voice – and strikes me as the kind of record that should be available on the NHS as a cure for stress.
Its songs range from the odd and slightly disorienting – such as Jacquelyn in the Background with its woozy guitar – to the simple, such as Strange Melody and especially Back, Baby. But all are equally captivating and time spent in Ms Pratt’s presence is time spent well indeed.
