Copeland — Ixora

Part 5 of our Copeland miniseries. We investigate the 2014 record, “Ixora.”

A band departs...under the burden of modern day music economics, away from the stressors of constant touring. But their fanbase never seems to quiet, rallying to a side project and that project’s Kickstarter, reigniting the flame. So 6 years after their "final record," our Florida indie-rock, and now I’d likely say indie-pop, band returns. When we arrive at that stage in our investigation, we discover that time does indeed alter perception. And what we find is a reunion record that plays much differently within a binge. 

This is Stereo Confidential 005, The Case of the Steady Drum.
