Trace Mountains – A Partner to Lean On [Figure 2 RC]

A Partner to Lean On, the first proper full length from Trace Mountains, is both an extension of front man Dave Benton’s (LVL UP) initial excursion to explore the world of sounds in solitude, and a continuation of his lifelong relationship with music-making as a social process. The songs featured on A Partner to Lean On came about over the course of many years. The sounds of lo-fi rock with sharp lyricism and vivid natural imagery are all over this album. Unlike Benton’s older work, this album relies on the talents of a group rather than himself. With five musicians other than Benton this album is sure to take Trace Mountains in a new a great direction.
