“A sense of spacepermeates every second of Matador’s thirty-nine minutes. From the astralgorgeousness of ‘The Girl Who Fell To Earth’ to the dream-like cadences of‘Oscillate’, it’s the sound of a songwriter melting musical boundaries likesnow; merging elements of Neu!, Disney musicals, Swedish psychedelicists Goat,Gyorgy Ligeti and Eno in a glacial soundscape as ambitious as it is beautiful. Theresult is an album in the classic sense. Matador is the sound of one ofBritain’s greatest songwriters facing the future with a flourish.”
