Formed in a Los Angeles garage in 1992, venerable indie rock quartet Idaho have both shaped and survived the Slo-Core movement (which includes such luminaries as Low and Red House Painters). With seven CMJ-chart-bending albums, and critical acclaim everywhere from Melody Maker ("Astonishing and timeless") to CMJ ("Awe-inspiring") to France's prestigious Liberation (which named their Hearts of Palm as one of its Top Five records of the 2000), Idaho commemorates its ten-year anniversary, and celebrates the release of the new vault-raiding rarities collection, We Were Young And Needed the Money.

California’s Idaho deal in the same brand of emotional slo-core produced by Red House Painters or American Music Club, but their newest, We Were Young and Needed the Money, a collection of unreleased tunes recorded over the years, displays a heretofore unseen garage-rock side to the band. Who knew?
