Looking to get back into the groove? Hey, this time of year, everyone’s mired in their day-to-day routines, and the holidays (and all the time off they bring) seem as if they’ll never come. Fear not: You’ll be able to take a vacation (for a few hours anyway) at Ideateam’s upcoming CD release party for their new album, Moving Still, on Oct. 28, 2016 at Harlow’s. This Sacramento-based nine-piece ensemble “explores the corridors of groove while flipping through styles like a deck of cards, flowing in and around various genres. Their live sound brings essences of old and new, blended with a few drops of extraterrestrial soundscapes—presented by a group of people who simply love to play music,” according to their website. Does that sound good to you? It should. And so should Moving Still. Submerge got a sneak peak at the album and it’s oozing with juicy beats, sumptuous horns and syrupy-sweet riffs. As an added bonus, roots rock aficionados The Nickel Slots will open what is sure to be a memorable and diverse bill.
