Some Water and Sun: All My Friends Have To Go (June 2005) Fresh off the heels of his We All Have a Plan release in 2004, Slicker (aka John Hughes) joined in collaboration with Spanova's Shin Tasaki for a series of sessions in Hughes' Chicago studios. All My Friends Have to Go is Some Water and Sun's first full-length to use plants and gardening as metaphors; Stevie Wonder beat them to the punch decades ago with "Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants". However, the comparisons to plants form on other levels too, as Slicker and Tasaki have crafted a 12-song salad of electronic compositions fueled with R&B, soul-jazz, a shade of quiet storm, and a bit of modern-day micro-house thrown in for good measure. The record moves smoothly and evenly from song to song, including ‘Watering,’ which is an ode to a housewife's thoughts of seducing a man watering his plants and could easily be used in the series Desperate Housewives as a subtle music bed. The return of Hefty's house chanteuse, L'Altra frontwoman Lindsay Anderson, is a welcome surprise, and her distinct and sultry voice adds to a musical jambalaya that is already enticing.
