Leila’s singular vision makes Like Weather a tough record to classify, falling somewhere between the dusty soul of trip-hop, the sensual elegance of R&B, the sugar rush of pop, and the fiddly experimentalism of IDM. But for the gorgeous swirl of strings and electronics on Space, Love, the tortured amen breaks of So Lo. men, the astral synths on Melodicore, and the hissing hi hats and curdled chords on Away, the album deserves a celebrated place in IDM’s ranks. Listen: Leila: Underwaters (One for Keni). Sure there’s the Tron-like intro to Seph and the dubby techno of OI, plus plenty borrowed from hip-hop. But listen as the simulated chamber music of Milh gives way to hyper-detailed syncopations, and dig the jazz underpinnings of Getting. They can also be chipper: There’s no nihilism, or rose-colored nostalgia, in the delightfully upbeat Fer.
