I love listening to folk music sung by women and there has been no shortage of good examples lately. My favorite of the last decade is Alela Diane; then there are all of the ones from the past that I've been discovering: Karen Dalton, Vashti Bunyan, and so on. I hear a lot about Angel Olson, but I find her music boring. Marissa Nadler is a mesmerizing performer but her records don't resonate with me. When I learned of Jessica Pratt I wasn't sure what to think; her singular voice was hard to accept at first, but when I spent time with the record I was swept away. Hers is a silvery, wistful kind of music that I find works best listening to an entire album, though this track from her sophomore LP, On Your Own Love Again, works wonderfully on its own with this video of vintage home movies. I look forward to going back and hearing Pratt's first album, too, sometime soon.   4

Something that struck me from #npr #allsongsconsidered 06/01/15 - nicely put on top of some Paris Texas footage   1

That crooning voice is so relaxing and the melody is beautiful. I think I first heard her on this TIMJ, thanks guys!   1
