Coming to attention as one-half of Azure Ray, Maria Taylor has been crafting solo albums of sincere adult-alternative introspection since 2005. Her approach is to do things slowly and subtly, which means her music often takes a few listens to fully appreciate the beauty tucked within the lines. There’s a simple gorgeousness to “Masterplan” and the more elaborate “Matador” that’s readily apparent. However, the tunes also have an unusual staying power. “Happenstance” confronts her decision to return to Birmingham, Alabama after years in Los Angeles. It’s this bittersweet twist that turns the wistful folk tune into a deeply affecting track. Her relocation to her homegrounds also gives the album a sweet Southern feel. The solemn purr of organ on “Like It Does,” the jazzy inflections of “Bad Idea?” and the modest string instrumentation of “In a Bad Way” all bring a valuable intimacy and variety to Taylor’s honest, reflective musings.
