"Covert Operations mixes variety of sounds"

Covert Operations, a five-piece band based out of Flint, Mich., released their newest album, “Mind’s Eye,” on Sept. 24 as a direct digital download.

Each track is remarkably different and weaves together different genres of music into a constantly changing, but always danceable compilation of music.

Covert’s music is rock ‘n’ roll shaped with influences ranging from funk and bluegrass to gospel and soul, and their live performances always consist of lengthy sets with instrumental improvisation.

The latest album, “Mind’s Eye,” begins with a track titled “Zone Room” and starts the album off with their take on modern reggae jams.

“The Best,” the fourth track, consists of fast-paced bluegrass that blends well with the melodious voice of Kedree Young, the guitarist and vocalist in this tune.

The album continues with “Catch 22,” the sixth track, and again brings together the style of reggae music with a lengthy jam entrance into a Latin-sounding, salsa mixture. It invokes a feeling of innovation to the music scene guided by the creativity of Dallas Barr, the other guitarist; Kedree Young, vocalist; Derek Young, keys; Matt Burgie on drums; and Alastair Nix on bass guitar.

The album can be digitally retrieved at
