Lastly we reach Idaho. Being born from the likes of Codeine and the Swans, Idaho has the goods. Take a beat-to-hell fender and strap it to a Mac truck. Take a brand new polished piano and put it on a fork lift. And then set them at opposite ends of a long interstate and in the middle have a lonely, deep-voiced street poet. Start your engines. Crash! Among the rubble you should find Idaho.

“Year After Year” is a slow, painful emotion in a minimal Galaxie 500 sort of way. Jeff Martin (bass, vocals, four string guitar and drums) along with John Berry (guitars, electric and acoustic, feedback, and drums) and few other in and out drummers have created a product so real and unforgiving that it makes you cold to listen.
