Album On Your Own Love Again. Strange Melody Lyrics. Run around, run around, run around Run around, run around, run around. Say you ran from the shadows you cast And the hand of the woman you knew Circled 'round for the sirens you found But your hard luck look isn't true. And they say I hear you're runnin' on empty now But you can't see me, the better half of a strange melody For the run around, run around, run around. Strange Melody" Track Info. Written By Jessica Pratt. Hungry Like The Wolf by Duran Duran. On Your Own Love Again Jessica Pratt.
That Jessica Pratt is releasing music at all feels like an accident of fate. A few years back, wholly by coincidence, she was living in the same house as Sean Paul Presley, brother of Tim Presley of San Francisco psych revivalists White Fence. On Your Own Love Again’s analogue genesis is alluded to midway through Jacquelyn In The Background, where Pratt’s voice slows and slurs, and the guitar slides out of tune, as if being played on a turntable that might be just about to give up the ghost. It gives you a little jolt – the musical equivalent, perhaps, of an actor breaking the fourth wall and addressing the audience. Used here, it feels like a sort of acknowledgement that these are new songs that sound like the old songs, the kind you might treasure till your vinyl is pockmarked and warped.
Pratt sings You better reconsider all the love you took and then cast aside/Things like that you can never take back again, sounding forlorn yet boldly mature.
Jessica Pratt’s voice is something special, a breathy, elfin coo that calls to mind Marc Bolan’s spirited yelp as well as Vashti Bunyan’s inward-facing whispers, channeled through Pratt’s own wry, observational tone. I see you standing wasted alone in my mind, she sings directly on opener Wrong Hand, but such a line doesn’t feel bitter coming from Pratt’s mouth, as if it’s a gentle warning rather than a harsh truth. Game That I Play manages to sneak in a stunning second movement while keeping the song trim at just over four minutes.

Pratt’s second album is an outstanding set of quiet, melancholy songs that don’t sound quite like anyone else’s, writes Dave Simpson. Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Jessica Pratt’s gentle, homespun songs sound so natural and effortless that it almost seems as if she’s composing them spontaneously. However, her 2012 debut album sat on the shelf for years and this outstanding follow-up has been the product of two years of home recordings in LA and San Francisco. Perhaps working quietly away from bustle has helped the 27-year old craft folksy songs that – tape hiss and all – are magically out of time.
Jessica Pratt finds that self-recording reaps rewards on the otherworldly folk music of her second album. Retreating from the studio(s) where she recorded in 2007 the songs that would make up Jessica Pratt five years down the line, San Franciscan Pratt recorded album number two at home and by herself, effectively stepping backwards to move forwards in terms of making a definitive artistic statement; On Your Own Again is the sound of a singer and song writer completely. at home in all the senses of that word
