Fire Track: Trace Mountains – “Sick Of Myself”

| |

Hot on the heels of the announcement of 3 sold out LVL UP reunion shows in August, Trace Mountains, the project of Dave Benton, shares a cover of Matthew Sweet’s 1995 classic “Sick of Myself”

Of the track, Benton says “I’m so thrilled to share this rendition of what I consider to be one of the greatest rock songs of the 90’s, ‘Sick of Myself’ by Matthew Sweet. I began working on this recording a while ago now in 2021, with co-producer Jared Samuel in Hudson, NY. While the recording from that session never was completed, his piano-forward, downtempo arrangement informed the approach we took moving forward to show a side of the song at its most vulnerable and spare. A part of me at that time resonated deeply with Matthew Sweet’s plain lyrics about loneliness and longing beneath all the dope guitar solos in his recording, so it was important to me that we highlight that emotionality in our version. I’m really proud of what we made and I hope you enjoy listening to it.
