Thinking About Tomorrow

I just spent the last hour in nirvana, listening to Beth Orton’s new album, Daybreaker. Soooooo good. 51 minutes of music without a single weak spot. Emmylou even shows up on a track, so you know it’s good. I think this is her official site, which, by the way, is so well designed that even dial-up folks like myself can listen to the audio samples. Check out “Thinking About Tomorrow,” which is some kind of beautiful blend of Lou Reed and Sarah McLachlan that manages to improve on them both.
