    This doesn't pertain to the new album, but I've been noticing how often I've been coming back to her duets with Terry Callier ("Dolphins" and "Lean on Me") that are featured on the expanded Trailer Park. What gorgeous songs!

    I couldn't agree more! "Pass In Time" and "Dolphins" are two of my favorite songs of hers...I love the way they sing together. Both slightly out-of-tune, but harmonizing perfectly!

    It's impossible for me to listen to "Pass in Time" without tears rolling down my face by the time it's over. Favorite Beth song.
    I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to The Seaward again.

    WOW!!!
    http://www.npr.org/event/music/15732...y-desk-concert

    the English singer-songwriter stopped by NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series and debuted three new tracks: “Dawn Chorus,” Candles,” and “Poison Tree” (as well as a rendition of “Sweetest Decline” from 1999′s Central Reservation). Stripped down to the raw essentials here — just Orton and a guitar — the songs are stark, haunting, and lovely. And man, what a voice.

    The new album is just wonderful. Classic Beth... nothing particularly showy, just beautiful, considered songwriting and that gorgeously cracked voice of hers. Really hope it does well for her.

    I loved/love "Daybreaker", anything like that on Season? Have been wanting her to go back to that style for awhile now.

    Pass in Time is one of my favorite songs by anyone. It's so beautiful.

    It's all very organic – much more in the vein of Comfort Of Strangers than Daybreaker, but less rough around the edges than that album was. And with better, more focused songs. A great autumn album for sure.

    Both tracks so far remind me quite a bit of Central Reservation, which is a VERY good thing.

    I spent a half hour with Beth yesterday doing an interview. She's practically glowing with happiness! Such a treat to finally get to meet her properly.

    at the moment I'm addicted to Call Me The Breeze. In a way, I think it's quite light and poppy for her, but I like that
