Jessica Pratt - Quiet Signs - New Vinyl Lp 2019 Mexican Summer Black Vinyl Pressing with Download - Indie Folk / Chamber Pop
Street Date: 2/8/19
After a collection of demos and early studio recordings Jessica Pratt earned a small, dedicated audience. Her second album On Your Own Love Again (2015) led many to fall under the spell of Jessica Pratt the performer, the songwriter, the singer with the heavy-lidded voice that feels alien and familiar at the same time. Co-produced by Al Carlson her third album, Quiet Signs, was written in Los Angeles and recorded at Gary's Electric in Brooklyn.
For her third album Quiet Signs, Jessica Pratt offers up nine spare, beautiful & mysterious songs that feel like the culmination of her work to date. "Fare Thee Well" and "Poly Blue" retain glimmers of On Your Own Love Again's hazy day spells, but delicate arrangements for piano, flute, organ and strings instill a lush, chamber pop vim. The record's B-side, meanwhile, glows with an arresting late-night clarity; the first single, "This Time Around," pairs the Los Angeles artist's intimate vulnerability with a newfound resolve. Ultimately, this confidence is what sets Quiet Signs apart from Pratt's previous work, the journey of an artist stepping out of the darkened wings to take her place as one of this generation's preeminent songwriters.
