Ought's Tim Darcy and AJ Cornell team on new album for NNA Tapes

Next month, NNA Tapes is releasing a unique project from two Montréal artists, seasoned improvisor Andrea-Jane Cornell and Ought’s guitarist/vocalist Tim Darcy. Titled Too Significant to Ignore, the 10-track album mixes patient, creeping drones and arrhythmic noise lurches with Darcy’s existential, repetitive faux-musings. The pairing makes for a disconcerting listen, the music suspended in cold loops and waves of noise, while Darcy’s spoken word punctuates the proceedings with a disconnected, alienated dread. It’s an oddly invigorating sound despite the content, and a welcomed curveball from NNA Tapes.

TMT has the pleasure of premiering the track “Cosmetic Sadness,” a clear album highlight. Check it out below, and look for Too Significant to Ignore on March 18.
