Album on Rotation Today—More Than Any Other Day by Ought

Ought: More Than Any Other Day Album Review | Pitchfork:

But more so than any identifiable influence, More Than Any Other Day is ultimately defined by its unsettled, restless spirit; this is an album that treats panic attacks and adrenalized ecstasy as two sides of the same pounding heart, with its simultaneous transmissions of joy and fear, discipline and chaos, comedy and tragedy. As Beeler spells it out in the album’s thrillingly combustible closer, Gemini”: I retain the right to be disgusted by life/ I retain the right to be in love with everything in sight.”

Ought is brand new to me. Restless minor key punk music is a pretty good start to the week.
