Rae Davis Positive Thinking!

Rookie Texan instrumentalist Rae Davis is off to a solid start with his debut, Positive Thinking! Despite the exclamation-tinged title, the nine compositions here aren’t quite upbeat. Rather, the San Antonio native prefers a chill, jazz-driven take on downtempo. Live bass and horns make for a fresh pairing with the stutter-step drum programming on songs like “This I Dig of You.” The tracks do lack a variance in tempo, but Davis switches up his percussive backbone enough to prevent much monotony–this is especially true when his own beat-boxed loops become the basis for his rhythms.
