Leila : Sodastream
[a]Leila[/a] is drifting away from her [B]Aphex[/B]-ish roots to sound increasingly like prime-time [a]Prince[/a] submerged in a sonic stew of squelching [B]Bjorkery[/B].

ballad which is slowly sucked into a deep pit of slithering sonic malevolence D but all in the best possible taste, of course.
