Customer Reviews


I was hesitant to buy this cd but it was very good... which was shocking since they're all covers. However, Deep Elm delivers as always. I really enjoyed these... reminded me of my teenage years but with a different twist.

Critical Praise for Cover Your Tracks

"If only all cover versions were this good. The source material is second-to-none and the modern roster really steps up to the plate on Cover Your Tracks. The premise is simple: 11 modern Deep Elm bands cover 11 classic tracks from the vaults. It's a genius idea, and with the likes of Desert City Soundtrack obliterating The Appleseed Cast's 'Marigold And Patchwork' you know you're onto a winner. Better still, Small Arms Dealer put an incendiary device under Cross My Heart's 'Today I Discovered The Word', and Surrounded deliver one of the finest covers you'll ever hear with a striped down take on Starmarket's classic 'Coming From The Cold.' Strictly limited, you'd best get your wallet out." - Big Cheese "Cover Your Tracks is a very unique comp; New school Deep Elm bands cover a song by an old school Deep Elm band in their own style. There's a lot of variation of genre and style, but one thing remains clear: Deep Elm knows passionate music. Whether it's the lush and dewy-eyed sounds of Surrounded, the Long Island pummeling that is Small Arms Dealer, the frenetic dance-rock of Free Diamonds or the post-hardcore of Fightstar, there's quality in all of these bands. That's incredible. I would recommend this Cover Your Tracks to anyone interested in underground rock right now. Props to Deep Elm, once again." - Independent Clauses "Deep Elm has always been a label with that extra touch of class. Their Emo Diaries series not only pre-dates the great emo fallout but contains plenty of bands that remind you why there was a fuss in the first place. To this end Cover Your Tracks sees the new roster of bands take on one songs from members of the old guard. There is more than a passing interest in hearing the likes of Fightstar and Clair De Lune tackle Last Days Of April and Benton Falls respectively, and it's testament to Deep Elm's vision that all 11 tracks are plain and simple great songs. Brandtson's "Blindspot" was always great and the standout track of their Letterbox LP...and Lock And Key do it every inch of justice. Everything you'd expect is here: atonal guitars and muted minor chords, lilting vocals and an oil tanker full of heartfelt earnest young men...but there's a twist in the tail. The best track to be found is tacked onto the end...a new track by the brilliant Sounds Like Violence makes the future sound incredibly bright when you've just been driven through such a glorious past." - Subba-Cultcha "With Cover Your Tracks, Deep Elm came up with an idea that is as awesome as it is simple: let all of your active bands on the roster pay tribute to some of your label's alumni. They must have been patting each other on the back for days before letting Clair De Lune and Fightstar take on a Benton Falls and Last Days Of April respectively and getting great covers in return. They must have still been congratulating each other by the time Burns Out Bright handed over their punked-up version of This Guy's Ready For Bed. And they must have been roaring with excited laughter when Slowride's Dan Phillips came in with an amazing acoustic rendition of Fishing The Sky. Then they added an unreleased song by Sounds Like Violence before calling it a day with yet another must-have compilation." - Punk Rock Theory "The premise is simple: it's Deep Elm bands covering Deep Elm bands from a few years ago. The label has always done things the proper way. It has always been about the music for them, with lynchpins like Last Days Of April and Benton Falls carrying the flag for 'real' emotional music without the floppy fringes and gimmicks. This compilation features many bands who put forward credible - if not genre defining - tracks that more than anything highlight the strength of the song writing behind the originals. All things told it's a damn good value purchase to signify a positive step for Deep Elm into the world of heavier guitars and feedback." - New-Noise
