Two bands perfectly bookended on either side of the punk spectrum bring their tour to Brooklyn this weekend with shows at Silent Barn (5/7) and Rough Trade (5/8). Montreal quartet Ought are still riding high on their last album, Sun’s Coming Down, via Constellation Records in 2015; a triumphant combination of The Fall, Talking Heads and Pavement. Video for the title track is below the jump (or stream the whole album here).
Priests have been a FW favourite for a few years now and are one of the best live bands around these days in my opinion. Having not released anything since 2014’s excellent EP, Bodies and Control and Money and Power, one might assume they will be playing some new songs. Between Ought’s angular, often technical compositions and Priests political, aggressive delivery, this is one not to be missed.
