IDAHO • "Kamikaze" • 2024

“A brutally beautiful return to form…Lapse lives up to IDAHO’s legacy as slowcore pioneers. Across 10 songs, the trio have truly outdone themselves with a collection of subdued elegance that makes the past come flooding back.”
– PASTE (8.0)

“Martin sounds totally inspired as he dishes out his seasoned drawl, glacial-paced clean guitars, a little bit of psychedelia, and lyrical references to heroes like Ultravox, Bill Nelson, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, and Magazine. Lapse could believably be a lost gem that IDAHO actually released during their mid ‘90s era, and it sounds just as timely in 2024 amidst the Duster revival, TikTok-viral slowcore acts like sign crushes motorist, and indie rock frontrunner Alex G. It’s great to have Idaho back in any capacity, especially with a new record that genuinely adds to their legacy.”
