Trailer Park

by Beth Orton

Original Release Date: 2008-10-13

Trailer Park

Fusing folk and electronica, Orton’s debut album blazed a quiet trail through British music. She was among the first to pair trip-hop with acoustic guitar, and, combined with her coolly distant voice, the results were spellbinding. “She Cries Your Name” feels like a modern folk song, filled with flickering synths and swooping vocals, while “Don’t Need a Reason” is more traditional, dreamier fare. She veers far from folk, too: “Live As You Dream” and “how Far” have a country twang, while “Touch Me With Your Love” and “Tangent” are angsty, classically 90s ambient numbers.
