Hearts of Palm
Idaho Music

Idaho has been together since 1997, and has endured a few lineup changes in that time. Hearts of Palm is their sixth full-length album of "slo-core," as they call it. You can just sense the melancholy in Jeff Martin's voice as he sings "To Be the One," backed by an almost Trip-Hop beat. They've toned down the feedback and the antique amps for a more sober, atmospheric sound.
