Honeycut, ‘The Day I Turned to Glass’ (Quannum Projects)
Old-fashioned soul music collides with the age of endless uncertainty on this San Francisco trio’s debut. As RV Salters plays mood synthesizer riffs, promising romance and intrigue, Tony Sevener’s drum programs produce brittle grooves that offer cold comfort. Meanwhile, Bart Davenport carefully approaches the abyss. Whether playing an icky lounge crooner or sliding into an eerie falsetto, he always seems to be looking over his shoulder, waiting for the next threat to surface.
