Cool Mom Tunes:  Jessica Pratt, Alien Songstress

Cool Mom Tunes: Jessica Pratt, Alien Songstress

A LONG while back, my friend Ally got me into this Karen Dalton record.  Her voice was like nothing I’d ever heard- raspy and worn, harsh at times, but coming from a place inside her that felt otherworldly to me.  I couldn’t get enough.  

When I heard Jessica Pratt’s new track, “This Time Around,” I immediately thought of Dalton and her strange sound.  In researching her on YouTube, I saw a comment on a song of hers from 2015, that validated my hunch.

Elias C wrote,

“This girl came from outer space.”


 Peculiar and beautiful.  No?

She’s got a new album, Quiet Signs, out Feb. 8th.

 

P.S.  She’s numero uno on my new 2019 Greats playlist
