IV is the latest album from Durham hip-hop-and-rock group Lila. It's not great, with generally flat raps and occasionally awkward attempts to go for electronic bombast. But the band's beats come from a rock-solid rhythm section. Keyboards prickle and glide, and guitars chime with hypnotic elegance. While Lila's music is complex, the true treat is their relentless energy, a strength that's even more apparent onstage. The lyrics can be pretentious, and the flow of MC Eli McDuffee rarely matches the band's musical vigor. Nevertheless, Lila knows how to host a decent party. —Jordan Lawrence
