Supreme Beings of Leisure 11i
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Ryko
Chilled as ever, the stylish electronics of Supreme Beings of Leisure have lulled listeners into smoky digital atmospheres. And now they need it themselves, after delaying this laid-back exercise since 2002 because of offspring, deaths, fires, and other family affairs. Perhaps that's why things sound so personal when songbird Geri Soriano-Lightwoood croons, "My darling/Our love was not meant for this world" on "This World." One can't help but add back story with titles like "Angel Head," "Oneness," and "Lay Me Down." Even when they amp up the proceedings on glitchy stompers like "Mirror," the Supreme Beings of Leisure sound like they are still working off the drama. And nothing goes better with drama than dance music.
