Beth Orton has been one of the most unique and beguiling voices in music for the past two decades. Her debut LP Trailer Park pioneered a synthesis of electronic and acoustic songs to huge acclaim. The follow up Central Reservation brought international success and the Brit Award for Best British Female. Further albums like the Jim O’Rourke produced Comfort of Strangers and 2012’s Sugaring Season deepened the breadth of her craft .
Having relocated to California a couple of years ago, Beth began experimenting with a series of electronic loops that would eventually come together as her career-redefining new album; a record inspired both by the wide-open nature of Los Angeles and the spirit of Beth’s earliest recordings.
This album, Kidsticks, repositions Beth’s unmistakable voice inside ten pure, audacious, playful and kinetic songs. A resolutely focused album, it represents a rare chance to hear an established artist get plugged in and completely rework the songwriting process with wide-eyed, open-minded glee.
