Slint - Spiderland (1991)

Slint definitely has their little spot in the rock music history books. Credited with launching (along with Squirrel Bait whose members are featured here, Rodan, and Crain) the post-rock and math-rock movements of the late 90s, Slint is the go-to for any music anthologist looking for that "little band that started it all". They split after only two full-lengths and one EP, but doesn't it seem like all these wildly influential bands were short-lived?

Keep in mind Isis, Neurosis, Godspeed, and Pelican fans, this isn't your post-rock. This is your Dad's post-rock, sophisticated and intricate but more rooted in Indie and Alternative Rock than metal or neo-classical. We played them on the show twice, and we sure like 'em. Check it out.
