Beth Orton – 1973 (ANTI- records) 
Beth Orton - 1973

Release Date: Out Now

I like Beth Orton. I don’t love her but I do like her and I’ve always felt like that would be cool with Beth, she seems like the kind of person who genuinely makes music for her own pleasure and doesn’t worry too much what others think. On new single, ‘1973’, our Beth has gone all muted electro-pop our asses and, while the voice is unmistakable, I wouldn’t have pinned this one down to Ms Orton. No, the relaxed beats and trill melodies are more reminiscent of Goldfrapp and, when you combine that with Beth’s uniquely and, frankly, beautiful voice, you’re on to a winner. Snazzy.
