Episode 410: Jessica Pratt's 'Quiet Signs'

On her new LP Quiet Signs, Jessica Pratt continues to perfect her chilly yet hopeful update of English folk music, and her efforts – this was Pratt’s first album recorded in a proper studio – more than pay off. Quiet, contemplative, chilly, yet supremely comforting, Quiet Signs is Pratt at her very best.

On a new episode of Discologist, we’re discussing this unique artists latest, the future of folk in the modern era, much more.

Singer-songwriter Jessica Pratt writes the kind of tranquil, meditative folk music that feels equally at home on a snowy winter afternoon or a calm summer evening. Her music has a retro feel to it, steeped as it is in the influences of artists such as Karen Dalton or Vashti Bunyan, yet like those artists it is so far removed from the tropes of anything that might be considered “popular” that it feels almost timeless. Her sophomore album, On Your Own Love Again, released on Drag City at the beginning of the year, continues down the musical path that she started on with her self-titled first album in 2012. Last Thursday evening, she brought this new album to the Rock and Roll Hotel.
