Amoeba Review

06/23/2014

Slint’s classic album Spiderland only seems to get more influential, yet more mysterious, as the years wear on. The band’s lone full-length record is credited with helping to jumpstart the post-rock movement, placing emphasis on Brian McMahan and David Pajo’s deliberate, exploratory guitarwork, while Britt Walford and Todd Brashear’s rhythm section keeps things still grounded in traditional rock ’n’ roll, even as Spiderland taken as a whole could be called anything but. From the muttered opening of “Breadcrumb Trail” and its wheezing guitar squeals through the unsettling riffs and spoken-word ambiance of centerpiece “Don, Aman” and finishing with “Good Morning, Captain’s” chiming uncertainty, Spiderland is utterly gripping—there’s just never been anything like this record. Though the album was re-released in a now-sold-out boxed set, this single-disc-and-DVD version includes the album, a download card for the outtakes and demos that were included in the boxed set, a DVD of the Slint documentary Breadcrumb Trail (directed by Lester Bangs) and a smaller version of the Slint coffee table book that was in the box set, which has photos and a foreword by Will Oldham. Of all the reissues and reunions out there, this is one that really matters. If you haven’t checked out Spiderland before, or it’s been a while, this reasonably priced reissue is all the reason you need to do so.
