Covet – effloresce

It's a good thing Covet exist because they're not only an example of how math-rock can be done right but also an example of how a band can learn that kind of restraint as it keeps working on what makes it tick. Don't get me wrong, I liked Covet's earlier releases; I even own a shirt! But there was definitely plenty on them which could have been excised for a more careful and powerful delivery. Focused on main guitarist and composer Yvette Young's skills, the previous Covet efforts too often felt a bit thin and airy, sapped under the weight of too many notes. But effloresce is a whole different release; on it, Covet are much more a band in the true sense, parts supporting a richer, fuller, more impactful whole.
