Like Weather is a gem of the mid-’90s downtempo boom. Its dusty, rolling funk is noisy and bursting with life. It’s also available on Rephlex, who recently reissued it. I’m a fan. Here are some reasons to listen to it. Here are a few songs to get you started. But first, be sure to check out the rest of her discography.
The album is full of eerie, lo-fi sounds that echo Prince’s ‘Sign O the Times’. Its melody and beats are off-kilter, which lends itself to the artist’s insular style. Its vocalists are top-notch, including Leila’s sister. It’s an all-encompassing record that feels both analog and digital. It’s a perfect blend of trip-hop, electronic, junglist, and baroque music.
Leila’s album is one of the most underrated electronica/trip-hop records of the decade. Its distorted lo-fi production, hypnotic hooks, and off-kilter melodies make it one of the most unorthodox albums of all time. The singers are top-notch, and the songcraft is unmatched. For instance, Leila’s sister also contributes vocals on ‘Archive’. The production of Like Weather is a masterpiece of remastering, and Luca Santucci, who also worked on Plaid and the ‘Grooves’ soundtrack, was a collaborator on the album. Other collaborators are Herbert and Playgroup.

The songs are a mix of synthesizers and vocals. While you might not associate the two together, they do share a lot of common ground. Their music is often described as trip-hop, but it has a unique sound of its own. The album’s title is a misnomer, and it’s also an oxymoron. But, what about the music? Well, it’s an esoteric pop album, and Leila’s voice is not at all like Maxinquaye.
