Room Inside the World aka Ought's third album shows growing up doesn't mean mellowing out so much as it means learning to pay attention, listening carefully and checking yourself. Recorded at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn with producer Nicolas Vernhes who has previously worked with Deerhunter, Room Inside the World explores themes that have always concerned the band, with peeps into identity, connection and survival in a precarious world.
The gentle subject matter contradicted with a bolder, more nuanced sound palette. Vibraphone, justly fuzed synthesizers and drum machines suffuse the precise post-punk breakdowns that spangled Ought's first two albums, giving rise to an emotional complexity that pushes their characteristically taut sound to greater depths.
You know what to do.
