Released:
Label: Touch And Go Records
Slint's second album, 1991's Spiderland, is quite possibly the most chilling record you'll ever hear, cold enough to freeze moments of your life like so many empty bubbles trapped in ice. Slint songs spool out yards of slack to hang yourself with, using long, tense tempo builds, maundering vocals and half-nodding guitars to set an uneasy half-dreaming/half-awake mood. It has the effect of leaving ample blank space to paint your own fears into. Taut, minimalist songs like "Don, a Man" list precariously alongside epic hallucinations like "Breadcrumb Trail" and "Good Morning, Captain."
