"Cover Your Tracks" is the best example of how new school Deep Elm meets old school Deep Elm in an unique collection of songs.
This is in fact a compilation where the new bands on this indie label cover songs of the older bands, always on Deep Elm. The album starts with indie rockers Desert City Soundtrack covering "Marigold And Patchwork" by The Appleseed Cast: they do a nice great job.
The best stuff comes from Small Arm Dealer covering "TOday I Discovered The World" by Cross My Heart, reinventing the song in a more punk rock way; Clair De Lune covering "Angel On Hiatus" by Benton Falls, where the superb guitars fall in love with melodic harmonies.
Free Diamons cover "Go Teens" by Muckafurgason and Slowride cover "Fishing The Sky" by The Appleseed Cast: both bands show how it\' s great and innovative to completely change the original songs. And so do Settlefish, who cover "Will The Violings Be Playing?", by Last Days Of April and Burns Out Bright, who cover "This Guy\' s Ready For Bed" by Pop Unknown. The album also features the unreleased track "Noone KNows What We\' ve Got" by Sounds Like Violence, which, I remind you, the most exciting rock and roll band around today.
The twelve song disc is a must-have for any fan of the Deep Elm cult. Buy your copy at the link below.
