Dying of curiosity? Absolutely need to hear what TRIBAL LINK sounds like? Well, consider this your lifeline – some kind soul over at NicoSound has uploaded a crossfade sample featuring clips from every track on the upcoming Lantis/I’ve crossover relase. There’s no re-arrangement of any of the songs’ music, which is a bit of a double-edged blade in itself – their previous attempt at a similar concept with Front Line Covers didn’t exactly hit it out of the park with every track, but seeing as the bulk of these songs are around 5 years old, a bit of a change would’ve been nice. Conversely, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – and the tracklist for TRIBAL LINK contains some of I’ve’s best eroge songs. Well, I’ve’s best, and Joushiki! Butler Koushinkyoku for some reason.
Edit – Also, Larval Stage Planning has their own microsite on ive.mu now! Notably, Geneon Universal isn’t mentioned anywhere on the site. Was the formation of LSP an attempt on behalf of the I’ve creators to make a break with their label? Possibly.
