Guys...a lot of new music has been dropping left and right. We thought we'd lead you to some hot new jamz.

Taste some of the good, some of the vibey and some of the NASTY.

Jessica Pratt: "Back, Baby"

Ironically, the first song I pick to post in a long time is "Back, Baby" from a long time favorite Jessica Pratt. The mysterious songwriter with the Stevie Nicks "Landslide" delivery and early Marianne Faithful rasp-on-command, delivers a beautiful new track in "Back, Baby" - the lead track from her upcoming new album and Drag City debut, On Your Own Love Again due Jan 27. Welcome back to Jessica Pratt, and to me, baby.
