Boomkat Product Review:
With an impact that belies the Kentucky combo's mayfly like existence, Slint set about cheery picking elements from Punk, New Wave and classic Rock then reassembled them so as traditional notions of pitch, rhythm and timbre didn't apply.
Predicting the Post Rock of Tortoise by almost half a decade, the likes of 'Nosferatu Man' and 'Don, Aman' show just how heavily the likes of Mogwai and godspeed you black emperor! are indebted to their sound. Including the classic heartbreak squall of 'Good Morning, Captain' (whose DNA is all over Beck's new album) there's never been a better time to investigate Slint and play dot-to-dot through the post-rock elements of your record collection.
