EP172: Slint “Spiderland”

There is an argument to be made that outside of the geographically named baseball bats, Slint’s “Spiderland” is the greatest thing to ever come out of Louisville Kentucky.  The bands six song LP is not only their high-water mark but it has more than stood the test of time by remaining an incredibly compelling and emotional listen all these decades later as well as being a major influence on the likes of Shellac, Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.   We gush.
