MATADORS
THE MUSE OF SENOR RAY
DEVIL DOLL

Smoke and groove rock comes from the Scandinavian trio known as Matadors, whose 13-track Mexican surf stoner rock adventure has the smell of summer all over it. From the flamenco-influenced stomp of “Deliverance” to the QOTSA meets Hellacopters rawk of “Next Episode”, Matadors create a hazy Saturday night atmosphere from the get-go. Imagine what it’d be like if Dick Dale joined Desert Sessions for a few cuts is the best way to describe this band’s trashy garage and jangly guitar flair, which holds water as a novelty but eventually falls by the wayside as an entertaining yet slightly hokey endeavor. But, if the tequila bottle is near, this is the perfect soundtrack.
