Slint Spiderland on 180g LP + DVD + Download

Original Album Remastered from Original Analog Master Tapes by Bob Weston

90 Minute Full-Length DVD Documentary Directed by Lance Bangs

Download of the Remastered Album Plus 14 Bonus Outtakes & Demos

In August of 1990, Slint recorded their second album Spiderland at River North Recorders in Chicago. Over the course of only 4 days, the four young musicians created what would come to be regarded as one of the most important and influential records of the past thirty years. Adding to the mystique surrounding Slint, they disbanded shortly before Spiderland was released on Touch and Go Records in April of 1991. There was no tour to support the album. There were no interviews with the band members. Just one eerie, now-iconic photo of the band members' heads breaking the surface of the water and an album of six taut, menacing, and haunting songs. 

Twenty-three years later, and five years in the making, Touch and Go Records will once again release the album Spiderland - this time on remastered vinyl complete with the accompanying 90 minute DVD documentary Breadcrumb Trail, and a download coupon for a wealth of bonus material. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl and packaged in a gatefold jacket, the entire Spiderland album has been remastered from the original analog master tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. The download coupon includes 14 bonus outtakes and demos personally selected by Slint and mastered by Bob Weston, as well as the entire Spiderland (remastered) album itself.

Finally, solve the mystery and learn the real story of Slint with Breadcrumb Trail - a new never-before-seen 90 minute DVD documentary about Slint before, during, and after the making of Spiderland. Directed by Lance Bangs! Interviews with all the members of Slint (Ethan Buckler, too!) as well as Steve Albini, Corey Rusk, James Murphy, David Yow, Ian Mackaye, Jason Noble, and many more friends and peers from the band's past (including Britt's parents!). Hear first hand accounts! See archival footage! Find out if the rumors are true!

"I first heard Slint before they were called that, but the difference between them and their contemporaries was already in concrete. From the outset they made music to suit themselves, not an audience, and their dogged pursuit of the sound of their imagination is still utterly unique. Tendrils of continuity between the doom of heavy metal, the drama of modernist classical music, and the rude musk of punk may not be apparent at first glance, but they glow like a web when illuminated by the fire of Slint’s muse. Nobody thinks about their music, or music itself, like Slint. Love this fucking band." - Steve Albini, 2014
