SJM CONCERTS PRESENT: MT. DESOLATION + TOM WILLIAMS
Eight years since the release of the eponymous debut album, Tim and Jesse return with When The Night Calls a darker, more brooding affair than its Americana tinged predecessor, and something far more personal. The lyrical thread which runs through When The Night Calls is a loss of freedom, and that nagging self-doubt that establishes itself at a point where one is expected to simply grow-up and face responsibilities.
The extended Mt. Desolation family are all present here (Phil Renna, Fimbo, Philip Scott-Ilsoe), but the songs themselves are shared between Tim and Jesse. These are songs of weight and purpose, warm and exquisitely shaped. The record is a fascinating reminder of why Tim is recognised as such a distinguished British songwriter, and why Jesse has been writing and performing his deftly crafted songs of yearning and hope for almost as long.
Tim Rice-Oxley: ‘Mt. Desolation is as much about hanging out with our friends and the joy of playing music in a room together, as it is about actually having a recording to listen back to.’
