Video: Jessica Pratt – “Her Strange Melody”

As San Francisco folkie Jessica Pratt told me in a recent interview, her young life was largely one of isolation and alienated musical study. Deep inside her own world, Pratt developed her own songwriting style that channels the styles of folkies like Karen Dalton or Linda Perhacs atop delicately plucked nylon string guitar. Combined with some American Grafitti-esque imagery, Pratt’s music truly sounds like some long lost set of recordings from the 60s. Here’s a video for the song “Her Strange Melody,” which is not included on her debut album for Birth Records.
