This item is currently unavailable.

Available on vinyl for the first time since its 1994 release, The White Birch ended New York slowcore pioneer Codeine’s original existence on a note of defiant restraint. It's faithfully restored here from original master tapes, bolstered by eight bonus tracks. Packaged as a 2LP (plus a CD archive of all the music) The White Birch gets Numero’s notoriously elaborate treatment including in-depth liner notes and scads of unpublished photos, plus a vital assemblage of demos, rarities, and Codeine’s cover of Joy Division’s “Atmosphere.
