IDAHO “Hearts of Palm” vinyl pressing

“Hearts of Palm”, IDAHO’s fifth studio album, was universally praised by the critic when released in 2000. It features Dan Seta on guitars and Jeff Martin playing everything else. Preceding a new Idaho album in 2019, we are delighted to announce today that this wonderful album is now released on vinyl by Talitres and available for pre-order from our webstore.

One of the most prolific, consistent, and unsung acts classified as slowcore, Los Angeles, California’s Idaho is led by four-string guitarist and vocalist Jeff Martin, an unflinching songwriter who gained comparisons to Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters), and Neil Young. Idaho gained a decent-size underground following through a steady release schedule during the ’90s, as well as sporadic touring. Through the 2010s, Idaho alternated between a full-band lineup and a solo outlet for Martin, who also plays drums, bass, and keyboards, and produces his recordings.
