Originally released in 1996, Beth Orton’s “folktronica” album Trailer Park sees a reissue on 180g opaque red vinyl. What’s amazing about the LP is how fresh and “now” the songs sound, and that owes not only to the English singer-songwriter’s forward, acoustic-electronic vision, but her warm, and soothing vocals. It’s important to also note how well the instrumentation / production complements her. Backed by stripped-down guitar, bass, and percussion and/or ambient, downtempo beats, Orton’s singing sharply cuts through, and the melodies she creates with her voice are very charming. Highlights include: “She Cries Your Name,” “Whenever,” “I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine,” “Sugar Boy,”
