Review: ‘Supreme Beings of Leisure – ’11i’’

Trip-hop band’s third release in six years, “11i” is a dark and moody mix of entrancing tunes. Vampy siren Geri Soriano-Lightwood’s vocals are in rare form, adding the right amount of diva to the tunework of Ramin Sakurai; together, the pair create a sound that promises to take listeners down the rabbit hole. While the album can be a bit somber and pitchy at times, “11i” is brimming with tantalizing, soulful tracks; “The Light” and “Oneness” are electronica at its most seductive, filled with rhythmic thumping and dark undertones, while “Ride” and “Mirror” are upbeat efforts, though far from the realm of conventional dance music.
