The first post-rock album and one that sounds as out of place and utterly seminal now as it did then.

One of our most favourite ever albums.

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 mapped 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. The eerie black and white photo of the four band members’ heads breaking the surface of the water is iconic among album covers.
