很偶然的机会在微博上看到这张专辑的封面 英文不太灵通的我 看到简介里提到那么多英伦乐队的名字 还以为是一张英伦合辑
下下来听了才发现居然是张旋律性非常好的Country 正中下怀 几名大牌摇滚乐队的非主音成员 居然带来了一张悠闲而且旋律性非常好的专辑
老男人啊老男人 又是我爱的老男人 主唱要特别介绍一下 是Keane的贝斯手Jesse Quin 真的没想到他的声音这么适合唱民谣
不似美国的乡村那般有浓厚的简单叙事风格 在这张专辑里的歌曲 有一种英式的绅士的温柔
或许你刚打开听到前奏的时候还以为是美式乡村的感觉 但当他一开口 你就能感受到那种属于英国男人的气场
专辑中有《Annie Ford》这样简单的叙事小品 旋律非常上口 但个人要强推的是接近尾声的一首《Halo of Fireflies》
是一首画面感很强的歌 好似几个兄弟一起去小酒馆喝酒 灯火微亮 在微醺的氛围中 男人们倾吐着彼此的心事
专辑中的每首歌都值得推荐 可能是我对这样的声音没有抵抗力 也大爱这样的风格吧 强烈推荐 提供版本为

Mt. Desolation, the new band of Keanes Tim Rice-Oxley and Jesse Quin, release
their debut album Mt. Desolation through Cherrytree/Interscope Records.

Those who have visited Dublin will know that sipping Guinness by a fire in a
nice old pub while its chucking it down outside is one of lifes great
pleasures. Its also, as you can probably imagine, the perfect setting for
eagerly hatching wild ideas and schemes. And so on one such blustery and cold
night in September two friends, Tim Rice-Oxley and Jesse Quin, decided (whilst
in wildly animated conversation about music and probably also well on their way
to needing a taxi home) that they would make a country album. As with so many
ideas that come about on a belly full of Jamesons, in the cold light of day it
did not seem like such a good plan. Two English men trying to sing like Hank
Williams was definitely a recipe for disaster. The whole thing was forgotten
about in the time it took to recover from the headache that morning. But the
headache was to return.

Out of the blue a couple of months later Tim emailed Jesse a rough demo of
“Departure.” Not wanting to be outdone, Jesse vollied back a demo of “Annie
Ford.” Before they knew it there were half a dozen songs and without really
putting much planning into it, the idea to make a record was resurrected.

Enlisting the help of friends from various other bands the newly formed group
went into Eastcote studios in London at the snowy start of this year. With
production wizard Emery Dobyns (Anthony & The Johnsons, Noah & The Whale, Patti
Smith),, patiently manning the controls, the idea was to record as much of the
album as possible live. For the finishing touches, they experimented with
whatever extra noises they felt like (cue dustbin lids, anvils, bullhorns and
heavily distorted theremins) and a supporting cast of friends who would
regularly stop by and add their ideas, whether invited or not.

With the album completed in late May, Mt. Desolation announced details of a free
download, “State of Our Affairs,” through their band blog after a deliberately
low-key debut gig at Londons Luminaire in early June. The MP3 was downloaded
several thousand times and introduced Mt. Desolation with a haunting,
atmospheric ballad featuring a starkly plucked violin and a vocal by Jesse.
Within twenty-four hours, YouTube was already awash with live recordings from
the Luminaire show and to their fans, Mt. Desolation had progressed from a
tantalizing series of studio shots and cryptic messages on a blog, to a band
with an arsenal of beguiling songs.

The eponymous album opens with “Departure,” a raucous, high-tempo hoedown of a
song, written and sung by Tim. Featuring The Killers Ronnie Vannucci and
Mumford & Sons Country Winston, it is a hugely spirited tune that sweeps with
an infectious rhythm and classic-sounding chorus. Its followed by “Annie Ford,”
a song written and sung by Jesse with a stetson doffed to Nashville. Jesses
rich timbre evokes the spirit of the rapturous Tennessee era of country, and
serves as an accomplished introduction to another fine young songwriter.
“Another Night On My Side” is as reflective as it is warm and cocooning, and
features a beautiful duet between Jesse and Jessica Staveley-Taylor (one third
of the hotly tipped band of sisters known as The Staves); “Platform 7” revisits
the high-octane country rambling spirit of “Departure”; “Bridal Gown” is a
charming, soothing lament; and the bluesy “The Midnight Ghost” takes its
inspiration from Jack Kerouacs “The Dharma Bums.”
