Ought – More Than Any Other Day

Oughts blistering More Than Any Other Day, the Montreal-formed quartet’s debut, is a post-punk album on the surface, armed with barbed wire guitars and conspicuous hi-hats. It works best, however, when it’s hastily becoming something rather than settling itself into one pocket. Third song “Today More Than Any Other Day” starts creaky before ultimately lurching into a tidier frenzy — spurred by a commanding “1-2-3!” from frontman Tim Beeler. Even “The Weather Song”, easily the album’s catchiest, most straightforward song, is made all the better when it scales a stomping, whoa-oh-oh outro.
