Opting out of computer-driven drum loops, Italian-Irish multi-instrumentalist Nino Moschella chose broomsticks and handclaps for his debut, and he ties it all together with a soulful voice. The Fix is such a unique R&B record that it barely warrants that designation. But the soul is heavy, as when he screeches so elegantly above a Zeppelin-fueled drum beat on "Strong Man." Organs, bass, guitars, and drums are the backdrop for some serious grooves while Nino's lyrics stay up front and the soul junkies get an unforeseen fix.
