Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes releases his second solo album, Matador. The LP follows 2012's Here Come The Bombs. The album was recorded in Coombes' home studio as well as Courtyard Studios in Oxfordshire, with almost everything on the record played by Coombes himself. 'Matador' is an object lesson in letting Britpop mature gracefully, with Coombes operating a million miles away from the wry anthems that put Supergrass at the centre of a post-'Parklife' musical boom. The anthems are still here, rest assured; they're less obvious, but definitely no less compelling.
