Jessica Pratt

California folk singer Jessica Pratt is a week away from releasing her sophomore album, On Your Own Love Again (due 1/27 via Drag City), and she's now made the whole thing available to stream at NPR. While her 2012 debut actually sounded like it was recorded in 1970, the new one's just a bit cleaner sounding and introduces some new textures but otherwise pulls from those same cult folk influences (Sibylle Baier, Vashti Bunyan, etc). Check it out.

Jessica's only US dates at the moment are with Kevin Morby on the west coast leg of his tour, and she heads to Europe after that. Hopefully she returns to NYC soon too. All dates are listed, with a stream of the album's lead single, below...
