– Instead, the DVD is housed in a separate, blank paper sleeve.
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 only album to feature Todd Brashear.
