Tags: , , , , , , , ,


One of my favourite tracks of the last decade is Leila's Won't You Be My Baby, Baby. I heard it on one of those free compilation CDs you get with music magazines. Most people would say they haven't heard of her, but more likely they just managed to miss the non-too successful hype. Even I managed to miss the release of her second album in 2000. Blood, Looms & Blooms is her third, released in July this year.

Time To Blow features our old chum Terry Hall, who I wrote about only a month ago. So good to see him again! The video was made by Michael England who did the album artwork and the special Warp newsletter on its release. For the video, he added animation to a live recording. His art has a magical-realism, Frida Kahlo feel about it. See his MySpace as well as Leila's for more. Leila's also has free downloads from time to time, one worth keeping an eye on.

Leila Arab, musician, producer, recording artist, moved to London after the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran. She started recording her own style of heavily IDM-influenced soul/ambient music for Richard D. James’ (aka Aphex Twin) Rephlex Records. She then met Bjork and became a part of her live band, doing live remixing and playing keyboards. Leila has also recorded under the alias Grammatix (where she is credited as Aliel Bara) to record even more experimental and rare music, and Little Miss Specta, which is how she appears on Medulla (Discogs).
