The fun thing to dive into when listening to Nick Pratt’s “Trying” is how he manipulates Erykah Badu’s vocals to match up with his own journey of overcoming and positioning himself better. Badu’s voice here is a light flutter, a hummingbird tick while Pratt journeys on in Los Angeles, not necessarily aimless but almost bewildered he’s at this point. It’s not chasing down curly haired women all over Los Angeles but “Trying” is as reflective as you can get while getting adjusted to live in the City of Angels. Pratt’s The Badu Sessions arrive Monday via DJBooth.
