It's hard to express exactly what I think about this new EP. What we've got here are four more tracks from, in my opinion, the most exciting new band of this year, which is awesome, but they're a bit varied in quality. A1, Pill, is dreamy and dreary, with recollections of past drug-rattled mistakes coming in muffled and muted (how about that alliteration?). It's a solid track, though maybe not the banger that I was looking for. "You wanted a hit, well maybe we don't do hits." However, A2, New Calm Pt. 2, brings the noise. This is exactly what I was hoping for. It's not as polished as the tracks on More Than Any Other Day, and the track is UNHINGED, bonkers and wonderful. Unfortunately, B1, New Calm Pt. 3, seems misnamed as it is anything but. The track careens around, resulting from an hour long session where we can assume the boys were just cussing around. It has that wild, Ought feel, but maybe it's a little bit too nuts. New Calm Pt. 3 will send your pets and loved ones from the room, and it almost wrecks the EP. Luckily the EP closes with Waiting, which is "classic Ought" if Ought tracks can be classic yet. Pulled from the More Than Any Other Day sessions, it's hard to imagine where they would have put it on that album, which may be why it was held off. Still, the track is beyond solid, giving us that stuttering, manic funkiness that I love. I would recommend that fans of More Than Any Other Day grab this EP, but if you're new to Ought, start there first.
