CODEINE: WHEN I SEE THE SUN a paraître sur l’immense label NUMERO GROUP

24 Jan

Late last year we issued a press release about a new direction Numero was going in: The 1990s. Alright, it didn’t explicitly say that, but it was implied in the content. On May 8th 2012 we’ll be reissuing the near-complete works of the seminal “slowcore” pioneers Codeine, and we’ll be setting a new standard for the modern reissue as a result. Their three albums for Seattle’s Sub Pop label, 1990′s Frigid Stars LP, 1992′s Barely Real, and 1994′s The White Birch, have been given the full Numero treatment, in a package that rivals our Boddie box.

All three double albums will be sold separately, or you can buy them together as the deluxe box set: When I See The Sun. We’ll be announcing a pre-order for the box shortly, and the first 500 will come with a bonus 45. Watch this spot for details.
