Today we review Jessica Pratt’s self-titled debut album that came out November 12th on Birth Records, a label Tim Presley (of White Fence) created just to release this LP. The 11-song, 41 minute record is a pleasant stream of warm, acoustic, fingerpicked melodies and hauntingly poignant lyrics reminiscent of female singer-songwriters of decades passed.
