Ought
Ought's debut More Than Any Other Day brought the band sudden and universal critical acclaim – including high praise from Drowned in Sound, Exclaim, Rolling Stone, NME, and a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork. They have been on the road ever since, where their channeling of passion, politics and charisma consistently connects with and galvanizes each and every audience.

Based in Montreal, Ought are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and exuberant post-punk: dextrous and exacting while bursting with propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap'n Jazz as to Talking Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple. Guitarist and vocalist Tim Beeler's declarative, observational style ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or emotional detachment.

More Than Any Other Day was released by Constellation on 29 April 2014. The band returned to the studio in early summer to record updated versions of some older songs and one new one. The resulting EP, Once More With Feeling…, hits stores 28 October 2014, as the band continues to tour extensively throughout the autumn in North America and Europe.
