Beth Orton On World Cafe

Once dubbed a "folktronica" artist, Orton goes all-electronic on her latest album, Kidsticks. Hear her perform live in this session.
When Beth Orton released her debut album, Trailer Park, in 1996, critics dubbed her music "folktronica" for its use of acoustic instruments, singer-songwriter vibe and electronic beats. Whatever it was called, the songwriting and performance were sensational.
