Ought
More Than Any Other Day

First LP from Canadian post-punkers Ought here. ‘Today More Than Any Other Day’ laces a poetic, urgent style ala Parquet Courts with caustic jank in the Nation Of Ulysses vein. Surely one of the best debut records to emerge from the Western rock underground in the 2010s, ‘Today More Than Any Other Day’ contains fan favourites ‘The Weather Song’ and ‘Habit’.

Ought
Once More With Feeling

Constellation's very own rock 'n' roll band, Ought, came screeching out of the barriers earlier this year, with a record that recalled guitar geniuses such as Slint, the Talking Heads, Television and all other creative riff-makers. 'Once More With Feeling' is the follow-up EP to 'More Than Any Other Day' and doesn't let up on the band's restless energy and zest for life.

Ought
Room Inside the World

For their third album, Room Inside The World, Canada’s Ought have allowed previously alien elements into their tight post punk sound. Here, frontman Tim Darcy’s aping of Ian Curtis, and the spiky guitars and frantic drums are interspersed with the obligatory vibraphone, synths, drum machines and a 70-piece choir that bands apply when they get a bit of coin behind them. Will it spoil the brilliant sound of before? Time will tell though the band haven’t mellowed out, maybe things may have just got a whole lot more interesting? We doubt it.

Sun Coming Down

Sun Coming Down is the much anticipated second full length from the Montreal quartet who have found love across the globe with their debut album which topped many end of year lists with it's twitchy economical sound and yelped David Byrne-like vocal delivery. This new album continues in that angular manner, an unpolished charge of politicised avant-rock.

Tim Darcy
Saturday Night

Ought are one of our favourite bands here at the towers and much of the enjoyment we get is down to singer Tim Darcy's twangy distinctive vocals and oddball lyrical dexterity. If we thought his solo work was going to go down the weird route of his excellent tape collaboration with AJ Cornell then from early teasers this could be a surprise sounding very much like the Strokes or Parquet Courts.
