Welcome students old and new… every Thursday until the sun blazes the Earth, the staff shall pay homage to the most classic indie albums of all time. No countdowns, or top 100 lists, just a weekly gaze into the Music Emissions vault. Let the education begin…

Slint's second full length, released in 1991

Spiderland is the second studio album by the American indie rock band Slint, released on March 27, 1991 on Touch and Go. Featuring dramatically alternating dynamics and vocals ranging from spoken word to shouting, the album contains narrative lyrics that emphasize alienation. Spiderland was Slint’s first release on Touch and Go, and the group’s last record.

According to wikipedia, the album has been highly influential on the styles of many bands in post-rock, including Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Slint was also featured on the “Kids Soundtrack’.

Have a listen to “Good Morning Captain“…
