Ought – “Pill”
Montreal art-punks Ought turned a lot of heads earlier this year with their intense, omnivorous debut album More Than Any Other Day. Before the year is out, they’ll follow it up with a new EP called Once More With Feeling…, which I really hope is named after the classic musical Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode. The EP’s opening track, “Pill,” is a five-minute slow-burn that builds confidently, layering organs and guitars on top of each other until it becomes a cathartic groove-maelstrom. Constellation, the band’s label, has shared the song as part of a three-song fall 2014 sampler. In the Soundcloud embed below, you can hear “Pill” start at the 9:59 mark; it follows new songs from Last Ex and Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche.
Once More With Feeling… is out 10/28 on Constellation.
