Australian quartet Bluetile were disciples of
Codeine's slo-core on
Lowercase (1995), a collection of lengthy dreamy pieces.
The somnolent and spaced-out Wriding (7:57) sets the pace
(literally). The sound of
is pale and gray, the rhythm borders on slow-motion.
A little bit of color and warmth appears in The Weight (9:21),
and some movement takes place in Ambered (12:02), which initially
is barely alive, barely breathing, but then soars in a quasi-religious
Half-Cut (Smells Like, 1998)
opens with a much more vibrant (and distorted) song, Liner,
but then plunges into the post-psychedelic depression of the 12-minute
Hiding To Crash. The songs plod along with little or no
variation, more or less hypnotic (L.T.D.) and with the rare
burst of life (the eleven-minute Old Star).
