Victor Davies’ eponymous debut seems like a strange release for Jazzanova/Compost Records. It’s full of Davies’ soulful vocals and acoustic guitar playing. But when the rhythm and horns kick in on the opening track, “Sound of the Samba,” you know that it’s a perfect match. The downtempo rhythms complement Davies’ musical sensibilities perfectly. The neo-soul of “Runaway Train” or “Take It or Leave It” may be far from the dancefloor, but it’s perfect for a cozy evening for two; “One Thing” is a sure-fire romancer. Sure, it’s not traditional “electronic” music, but when it’s this good, who cares?
