Shall Be Released: Kidsticks by Beth Orton + My Music Collection: O is for…

a2580938404_10Until I looked up Beth for this post about all my crappy CD’s, I didn’t know she got a new album coming out. It’s called Kidsticks, out on May 27th. Beth’s worked this time with Andrew Hung from Fuck Buttons so that’s some really wicked news, that’s just two very cool people in the same recording studio. I must have missed this earlier when it was announced. This year is turning into a cool one for some of my fave artists/bands releasing new stuff. This will be Beth’s sixth album and four years since her last album. The last time I saw her live was around then and she play in a church for some reason I can’t remember but she dropped the f-bomb and then laughed because she forget where she was. She was a bit of a stand-up comedian in-between the songs that night, told some great jokes and/or stories, really talkie. It was a great gig, the best I’ve seen from her, she played totally solo too which I’ve not seen her do before, it’s always been with a band. So I have to now I have to included below the track listing, credits, new song and then the album cover:

2. Moon
3. Petals
4. 1973
5. Wave
6. Dawnstar

10. Kidsticks
