Orton, Beth : Central reservation

Scientists are calling it ‘The Moloko Effect’, and we’ll go

along with that because, would you believe, [a]Beth Orton[/a] has released a good record at the end of the summer; ie, it doesn’t make you think of knitwear and viruses and winter chills and, crucially, it has a tune.

Like [a]Moloko[/a], Beth has enlisted the significant ‘help’

of a crack squad of remixers – Deep Dish, William Orbit and a bloke named Joe Claussel – and they’ve managed to surgically attach a sprightly house groove to her tale of yearnsome countryside love which, if it wasn’t being caned in Ibiza, really should have been.

To be totally honest, a surprise.
