Beth Orton

One of the more disturbing things about growing old when you're at my age is the anniversaries of things which still seem comparatively recent but are actually receding in the rear view mirror. Beth Orton's Trailer Park, for example is now twenty years old. Best not to dwell on that, she has a new record out called Kidsticks in a couple of months and these two songs have been put out there in terms of pre-release publicity.

Both sound great, on Moon below, she sounds as if she's being backed by Japan. In general though they're neither a million miles away from the basic template of Trailer Park itself. Well, if it ain't broken...
