Saratoga-based Yvette Young is undeniably talented. Raised on a strict regimen of classical violin and piano, she discovered the guitar as an adolescent. Young approaches her instrument as she might the piano, using both hands to tap the frets, coaxing out complex, multi-layered melodies that would be impossible to produce from strumming alone. While the music she makes with her band, Covet, could easily be classified as prog, there is a freewheeling energy to it that is reminiscent of punk and indie. Effloresce, the trio’s first LP on Triple Crown Records, sounds a bit like a highly refined Tera Melos or Hella—with wild guitar heroics balanced by ultra-tight songwriting.
