Over four days in August of 1990, SLINT recorded their second album, Spiderland, and the world would never again sound the same.

Produced by Brian Paulson at River North Recorders in Chicago and released by Touch and Go Records in April of 1991, the six songs on Spiderland methodically map a shadowy new continent of sound. The music is taut, menacing, and haunting. Its structure built largely on absence and restraint, on the echoing space between the notes, but punctuated by sudden thrilling blasts of unfettered fury. It is a sound that no one had heard before and that no one will ever forget. The eerie, now-iconic black and white cover photo of the four band member's heads breaking the surface of the water was taken by their friend Will Oldham. PJ Harvey was among the respondents to the band's call for interested female vocalists on the back cover.

Spiderland spawned a whole new genre, frequently called Post-Rock, and came to be regarded as one of the most important and influential records of the past thirty years.
