The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.) is honored to host the Idyltime “Rimrock Country” Album Release Party at 6pm Thursday, May 26. “Rimrock Country” will be available for purchase at the party. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages.
Rimrock Country, Idyltime’s second album, consists of 11 original and four traditional songs delving into the time and space of love lost and found. Driven by fiddle and banjo, tied together through harmony, and energized by the bass fiddle, Idyltime’s new album is a toe tapping retrospect. It was recorded at AudioLab by Steve Fulton and Pat Storey in December 2015.
Most people can hear a certain song and it will take them back to a prior experience, maybe to a feeling had and relived through a melody. Idyltime is comprised of four souls eternally searching for the source of this nostalgia. People often say that their music takes them back to a memory and reminds them of the good in the world.
Idyltime, a band originally playing bluegrass out of southern Oregon, reformed in 2011 when Beth and Tate Mason moved to Boise, Idaho. There they joined with Dave Daley and Ava Honey, who were hosting the weekly old-time jam at Pengilly’s Saloon. Delving into their common love for acoustic roots music, Idyltime’s sound is at once traditional and original.
