Gaz Coombes, the former front man of the band Supergrass, has returned to release his debut album Here Come the Bombs. The album brings a relatively new sound for Coombes, who was largely influenced by film and film soundtracks on these recordings. Tracks like“Hot Fruit” channel Radiohead’s Hail to the Thief while“Sub Divider” & “White Noise” could be an OK Computer b-side. “Fanfare” & “Break the Silence” has the light-hearted electronic feel of a Hot Chip song and closing track “Sleeping Giant“ resolves the record on a dreamy note that mirrors French duo AIR.
Recommended Tracks: 2, 6, 4, 8, 7, 11
FCC WARNING: Track #3 “Whore”
