Whatever The Weather is less a title and more of a philosophy. Yes, the eleven tracks on this project’s debut LP are defined by degrees in Celsius, but its sonic connections to the earth’s patterns go far beyond what can be read on a thermometer. Shaken free from any constraints of “club music” the music of Whatever The Weather takes on its own forms, moving in and out like the tides across its tidy runtime. Put together under this new alias, Loraine James explores a more playful, freeform approach, and her improvisations have a certain transience not unlike a rapidly changing climate.

Take for instance, the opening ‘25°C’ with its soft hum and bright keys, recalling the summer rain that precedes a floral bloom and the way it flows into the static and steely beats of ‘0°C.’ It isn’t all so pastoral, as ‘17°C’ reminds of the ways development alters the natural world, with car horns, screeching brakes, and crosswalk chatter paired against some familiar (one might say reflective) jolt-y percussion. Weather closes with the ambient-leaning revelry ‘36°C,’ the LP’s hottest track sports a soaring synth melody that rises across a five minute runtime until a short, glitchy fade out. Summer does always seem to end too soon.

Returning from a strong 2021 that saw her snag top spots on year end lists from The Quietus and DJ Mag, Loraine James has released yet another incredible collection of electronic music that will surely set the tone for the year.
