CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Consequence of Sound

One of the strengths of this album is how Orton alternates moods while maintaining a sense of pace, an underlying heartbeat that unifies everything.

musicOMH

Like swimming outdoors, the initially chilly feeling soon gives way to a warm and comforting glow that's hard to stay away from.

77
Pitchfork

There are no unexpected detours or superfluous tangents, just 10 songs of sweet resilience delivered by a voice of seemingly effortless expression.

70
Drowned in Sound

On Sugaring Season she captures both the melancholy and the confidence that comes with growing older really rather well.

60
PopMatters

While the whole album can’t quite sustain the easygoing thrills of its high points, going out with less of a bang and more of a whimper, Sugaring Season still makes a good case that it’s better late than never that Orton is finding her own vision as an artist.

58
A.V. Club

Without a steady beat to ground it, Orton’s music tends to float into the ether.
