Barely Real (2023 reissue)

  • limited "upper belvedere" clear blue w/ green splatter 12" ep

    Released: 14th Jul 2023


After the scrapped "Dessau" sessions in 1992, Codeine returned with an EP of icy and effervescent tracks.

Clocking in at a brisk 25 minutes, the six-song 12” features drummer Chris Brokaw’s final recordings with the group, plus noisy guitar from Bitch Magnet’s Jon Fine and a solo piano arrangement from Bastro’s David Grubbs. Remastered from the original analog tapes and recreated in painstaking detail, Barely Rea l is the slowcore classic your therapist warned you about. “As far away from traditional rock & roll heat as a post-stellar universe is to the Big Bang.”—The Quietus
