Orton Hears A Whoo-Whee

The new Beth Orton CD, Daybreaker was released today. With collaborations from both Ryan Adams and the Chemical Brothers, the album is as lush, haunting and delicate as her voice. Often compared to Joni Mitchell, Orton continues to grow into her voice on this album, and the result is an enchanting mix of electronica and ballads that works well as the background music for a busy day.

A couple of years ago, right after I purchased my first CD recorder, I burned my first mix CD, "Music To Drive My Wife Crazy." Included on this was Beth Orton's "I Wish I Never Saw the Sunshine" from her Trailer Park album, and every time my bride hears that song tears well in her eyes, because Beth Orton not only sings, she lives the lyrics with her voice.
