Idaho The Forbidden EP CD

Blue is what Idaho do. From lyrics of obsessedly sad ventures to guitars that speak the blues without strutting Southern blues guitar licks. Idaho play their own blues. Somber sentiments and yearning are disquieting to hear from loved ones. But from this duo it is a virtual relationship that is tearing apart for which you are there to help the lonely get through the painful times. Soothing voices usually heal the pain and strife gained from losses - these voices are for those that donít have real friends, that donít have real enemies, that donít know what it is to be in pain. The Forbidden EP is the 12-step guide to caring for those tragedy-stricken people near to us, albeit in this case only virtually.
