Mt. Desolation is truly an interesting hodgepodge of musicians. The band is comprised of members of The Killers, Keane, The Long Winters, Mumford & Sons & Noah and the Whale. I am very excited to hear what the sum of this experiment sounds like. The band has released their first studio recording called "State of Our Affairs". You can download it here, but it will cost you your email address.
The band recently made their live debut in London, and you can find footage of two songs here.
