Codeine – The White Birch


The White Birch is the second and final album by the New York band Codeine. Released in April 1994, the album is considered to be the band’s best album and a clear influence on Low, among other bands.
This was one of, if not the album, that created the slowcore genre, not to mention being some of the first proto-post rock. If you’re now curious as to how this sounds, simply examine the album cover. It feels like taking a walk through a park in winter, where the air is dead, and the longer you walk the less sure you are that the park is completely real. The whole experience becomes a surreal episode, something for your memory to analyze, twist, and distort, attempting to rationalize it. It begins to snow, and you’re walking through this park, into the white.
