Tim Darcy – Saturday Night
Ought‘s Tim Darcy is a very cool and charismatic guy not dissimilar to David Byrne and Morrissey. His solo debut holds up because of it, but barely. While there’s some nice enough, classic-sounding pop songs, many tracks are either too plain (first half) or too weirdly atmospheric (second half). His intentions are clear, his presence is fascinating, his voice is good; the results are not entirely satisfactory. Not my idea of a Saturday night.
Best song: Still Waking Up
