Prairie Cat

It Began/Ended With Sparks (Fuzzy Logic)



Cary Pratt's Prairie Cat has stepped out of bedroom pop and into the world of pure pop. Ring-tone rappers and Rock Band rock stars may infest the industry, but Pratt has a formula that will save his soul, and his listeners' alike: have fun and stay human. Sparks is an album built up from two years of break-up recuperation---but is there any better source of creativity? A track like "Just Cuz" could make you cry if it didn't accept failure so cutely ("I'm over here now/you're over there now"), and "Get Off" could sound bitter if Pratt wasn't having such a good time singing away his sorrows.
