A Paste news story brought to my attention the side project of Keane’s Tim Rice-Oxely, called Mt.Desolation. Apparently he’s got all kinds of musicians working with him, and I’m excited to hear the result….also, says they’ve been in the studio together since Jan. 14. It’s great to think about artists collaborating in a close environment, creating something new together and just devoting themselves to it for weeks at a time…when so much music is just thrown together and thrown on a record and thrown a stage because it’s the cool hip thing of the moment, you risk losing some of the feel that comes along with the creative process….so yay, Mt.Desolation, I hope you do not disappoint and I do not think you will.
