The Slint crew is off to Europe on a tour supporting the re-release of Spiderland. The reviews are, well, both quite positive and puzzled that a band that started off an entire sub-genre, then broke up twenty years ago can still find a audience, and a respectable, young audience at that.
Here are two reviews from a show in Bixton, London:

Slint talks about Spiderland in an interview recorded during the NOS Primavera Sound Festival in Porto, Portugal in June. “It’s weird, the reverential treatment,” Brian McMahan says with a laugh. “We aren’t used to it. We did not get that when we were younger.” Watch:

Syd Bishop at Never Nervous takes on the task of reviewing the Slint documentary “Breadcrumb Trail” and wanders off on a long tangent about why Slint was the band it was when Spiderland was recorded, with side remarks about why Louisville was the way it was.
