The liner notes say “Slicker is John Hughes,” but We All Have a Plan is a long way from Hughes’ days of dabbling solo in IDM programming to shake the indie rock blues. Instead, this Hefty label boss’ third disc is a fascinating mess of sounds and voices, pushing blips against Phil Ranelin’s trombone, dub textures against Autotune-addled pop vocals and pressing microhousian gurgles against Dan Boadi’s full voice and his own subdued whisper. It’s impossible to keep track of the influences and ideas zipping by, yet somehow Hughes keeps it all together, knitting We All Have A Plan into a tight package of catchy future-soul.
