William Covert Releases New Music Video “I Am Not Paul Avery” Taken From Debut Solo Album Due Feb 1st Via Coup Sur Coup Records

William Covert is on the edge of another incredible and rewarding year musically. Previously we’ve promoted William’s efforts in his musical outlets such as Space Blood, the dynamic Chicago based duo. At the tail end of 2018, William took over the site to share about his year in music and shared details of his projects with a solo release.

William’s debut solo album is due February 1st and will be released via Coup sur Coup Records. He explained “It’s kind of a departure musically from bands I’ve played in as there are no guitars on the album at all and is strictly drums and various synthesizers as the instrumentation. The music is kind of a cross of mathy electronic stuff similar to Adam Betts and Vessels to darker prog ala King Crimson with also a heavy influence of the soundtracks of John Carpenter”

Now the musician has unveiled a video for the single I am not Paul Avery, taken from the upcoming and highly anticipated album Music for Synthesizer and Drums (CSC-007), which will be available on cassette tape and digital.

The idea behind Music for Synthesizer and Drums came about as an experiment to creating music that features synthesizer and drums without any pretense of genre or label i.e. it’s not rock music for synthesizer and drums, it’s not punk music for synthesizer and drums, it’s not jazz music for synthesizer and drums, it’s just Music for Synthesizer and Drums.The album consists of fully composed songs as well as quasi-improvised pieces that play off the beauty of imperfections inherent with analog synthesizers and acoustic drums that keeps the music lively, but not sterile. This is weird music made for weird people.
