Matador is Gaz Coombes’s second solo album since the demise of Supergrass. Those who admire the muscularity that propelled that band and the economy of Coombes’s songwriting will not be disappointed by songs such as To the Wire. They may, however, be shocked at its opening line: I want to cut myself/ Cut myself down. Similarly, Detroit’s krautrock patterns bubble along prettily, but there is panic in my heart is an unsettling refrain. Matador’s sound textures are pulled together from a wide range of sources: a gospel feel on the chorus of 20/20, a touch of Neu! in The English Ruse.

Take "Detroit", which is fairly representative of the album on the whole: What starts out as a wonderfully introspective, acoustic track built for daydreaming gives way to overblown bursts of string-augmented gospel. Fans will no doubt try to engage with Matador as a Supergrass album, which is unfair. But when it seems content to play as merely a Supergrass footnote, it’s hard not to make easy comparisons. A few tracks make some effort to remedy that kind of thinking, all while appeasing longtime loyalists.

It's too easy to peg Matador as the maturation of the notorious teenage rocker Gaz Coombes, but it's also inaccurate. Coombes began flirting with introspection early on in Supergrass' career, eventually dedicating the entirety of 2005's Road to Rouen to reflection. Matador often plays a bit like a decade-delayed sequel to that 2005 minor masterwork, maintaining a similar sense of reserve that sometimes belies the adventure that lies underneath the shimmering surface

It's two bonus tracks on the download card. To be honest, I haven't redeemed it yet so I'm not exactly sure what they are.
