When an electronic musician puts livestock on his album jacket, it can mean only one thing: He’s going organic. At least that’s the case with knob twiddler Slicker, a.k.a. John Hughes III (yeah, that John Hughes’ son), who follows up his gleefully glitch-ridden second CD, The Latest, by incorporating more natural elements into his automated approach – that is, strings, woodwinds, and bluesy vocals. Ironically, Plan’s cyborg sound is frequently stiff and repetitive, where The Latest’s electro grooves were, well, slicker. The flesh is weak, indeed.
