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.
