Slicker's second album THE LATEST continues the first's exploration of IDM, even if the opening track, "Hard Track" tricks you into thinking you're stepping into a straightforward techno album. But the warm glitch-house of "Frust Rache" moves you in a new space, and "Oper Huru" turns that space into dark jazz. "Lucas" brings the warmth back, along with the kick drum, until switching gears near its end. "7words" goes in a harsher, more industrial direction, though not without a melodic component, and "For Late" has a slight dub influence working with its jazz piano and horns (the dub is much more obvious on "Red Track"). "Lovin to You" adds a funky touch to the album's repertoire, and "Ika Freaka" closes the album on a more downtempo note rooted in angular IDM. The latest, and possibly the best of Slicker.
