And speaking of Soundcloud being where a lot of idol is happening anymore, along comes IVOLVE with a couple of tracks in addition to their fine previous work in that regard. And you know, partly for its regularity and partly for its potential, it’s a notification that I’m glad to see, when they post anew — a lot of the groups that still exist from when this site got started are legacy projects, living on inertia or with essentially a fixed membership, whereas groups like IVOLVE, which are themselves somewhat established and boast membership from that earlier era and still have a bright future ahead, they feel like a bridge between eras. And idol eras, as we’ve learned, aren’t exactly long-term things!
Anyway, you’re here for the stuff, not the Maniac:
And thanks for supporting their one-man yesterday!
IVOLVE is a group that’s really, from a consciousness perspective, emerged lately, and I’m glad for it. They straddle a lot of musical lines, and not everything works as well as you might want it to, but I’ll be darned if they don’t hit a ton of sweet spots when they get it right. It is definitely going to be interesting to see where they land in 2019.
