I don't think I had listened to any of these singles before preparing them for this post. The verdict? Amazing. I may not be in the mood to listen to this sort of music all the time, but if you are into it then this stuff is pretty radical. I am currently trying (and failing) to think of a band who has a more appropriate name as well.
If you are a fan of Codeine, please do yourself a favor and read the essay that my good friend, studio engineer extraordinaire, and Aa drummer Josh Bonati recently wrote on The White Birch.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Codeine.
