Ought – “The Weather Song”

Ought_029

Montreal’s post-punk/art-punk band Ought have had a busy year. Their 2014 debut album More Than Any Other Day was received rather well with critics, with single “Habit” containing bursts of confidence. Ought, I’ve found, is a bit more experimental in their songs than other post-punk artists, considering their music can take on many different forms – everything from aggressive beats to moody, distressed tracks (see “Around Again”) with beautiful melodic overtones. In their track “The Weather Song,” singer Tim Beeler really lets loose with his convincing, grainy, half-speaking, half-singing voice. It escapes the bounds of the rhythmic, almost jumpy funk like guitar instrumentals that only seem to slow down at the chorus, and it’s fluid transition between the two is what makes it the best track on the album for me.
