“We Hope the Weather Will Continue” is the fourth single and one of the few songs on a contender for the year’s strongest albums NOUS III to utilize odd time signatures and electronic underpinning. Greg Fox’s percussion really shines on this. Using rolling kicks that match his work in Liturgy in terms of intensity and speed, the structure of this piece was guided by triggered minimal synth loops from Ableton Live. Built out from there the core of NOUS is matched with members of ACME: American Contempory Music Ensemble and Ymusic members on strings, percussion and flute which propel the composition towards a crescendo to the song’s towering climax. A track that matches this year’s breakneck speed towards something that either topples in on top of us or transforms us forever.
