Fortunately, the apparent android in question is Dirk Dresselhaus, a verified Homo sapien who records under the name Schneider TM. Fluent in bloops and blurts, as he demonstrates on the squiggling symphony "Chotto Matte," Schneider TM differentiates himself from his computer-language-only peers by speaking English, albeit with a highly processed delivery. He issues foreboding phrases such as "beware of the matrix" and "bad moon rising," he harmonizes with himself, he even spits out the f word -- all through a metallic filter that makes him sound like he's talking directly into a running faucet. "Fruktos" takes a Sea Change-style confessional, shreds it thoroughly, then imperfectly pastes it back together so that sliced words overlap or don't quite connect. It might be one of the year's most moving -- and most human -- compositions.
