90’s band Codeine is playing 10 EU/UK shows in support of their lost album Dessau, recorded in 1992 but released just last year, along with new, colored vinyl reissues of their three original Sub Pop records:Frigid Stars LP,BarelyReal(EP), andcThe White Birch, all via the archival label Numero Group.With the release ofFrigid Stars LP (1990), Codeine almost single-handedly invented what would later become known as “slowcore.” Predating influential albums by kindred spirits Low and Duster by almost half a decade, Codeine’s slow, graceful songs support lyrics that are a disturbingly pure embodiment of depression. The band ground to a halt in 1995, their final release being a cover of Joy Division’s “Atmosphere,” which recently found its way onto the tv series,13 Reasons Why.These will be Codeine’s first non-US shows since 2012 (when they played a similar number of dates supporting Numero’s compendium,When I See theSun)and follow sold-out shows in New York City and LA earlier this year.

Listen to Stephen Immerwahr’s dour poetry, John Engle’s tolling guitars, and Chris Brokaw’s glacial drumming, and picture falling snow.The sound, which typified the slow core indie-rock sub-genre, is so chilling, precise, and beguilingly extreme—shy, then crashing—that it re calibrates the vast spaces around each inquisitive note. It becomes an exploration of tone and tension, and a desolate meditation.” – Jenn Pelly/The New Yorker
