This time it was in The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, for Canadian Music Week, for the Audiotree North launch party.
They played a set mostly made up of tunes from their latest album Room Inside the World, punctuated by perhaps their best known tunes "Men for Miles" and "Beautiful Blue Sky"from 2015's Sun Coming Down. As I've said before, I love the contradictions that this band rolls into their uniqueness; the way the rigid yet dynamic and jittery beats and riffs meet the impassioned and character-driven vocals, coming together into something that grows on me more and more with every listening. Their sound has also grown, evolved and even stretched out with richness, emotion and space. I dive in and stay a while.
Check out Ought's music:
"Disgraced In America", "These 3 Things", "Desire" and "Disaffectation"
