Prior to Covington, Kevin, Chris and Drew were three of the four original members of Ampline. Although they cut their teeth playing music with no lyrics, they all sing this time around. It isn’t Peter, Paul and Mary, but their voices blend and buoy each other about as good as three guys playing punk rock ever could or should. Covington’s music calls to mind bands like Pegboy, Hot Water Music, Jawbox and Someday I with its uncompromising mix of melody, off-kilter song structures and solid musicianship.
