Copeland — Beneath Medicine Tree

Part 1 of our Copeland miniseries. We investigate the 2003 record, “Beneath Medicine Tree.”

A songwriter puts together a record so intimate, so genuine, he would later admit that he’d “maybe never again write anything that intensely personal.” That’s where our new project began, dissecting a Florida band that Mike and me used to follow on old punk forums. James, meanwhile, well he discovered them later in life, and should be a check on any clouds of nostalgia.

This is Stereo Confidential 001, The Case of the Faded Hospital Bed.
