'The Ghost Of The Mountain' is the follow-up to Tired Pony's critically acclaimed 2010 debut 'The Place We Ran From'. Tired Pony (Gary Lightbody, Peter Buck, Iain Archer, Richard Colburn, Scott McCaughey, Troy Stewart and producer/multi-instrumentalist Garret "Jacknife" Lee.) were originally put together by Lightbody to realize his long-standing ambition of making an Americana album. However over a period of nine days in February/ March sequestered in Lee's Topanga Canyon studio the reality outgrew his vision and this second album shows a much wider range of textures and influences.
'The Ghost Of The Mountain' is an album that glides effortlessly from soulful Americana to glam-influenced stomps to plaintive country introspection with lead single 'All Things All At Once' summing up the band's ability at injecting melancholic depth into effortlessly breezy sing-alongs. The record features contributions by guest vocalists, Bronagh Gallagher, Kim Topper and Minnie Driver.
