Spiderland album cover


Touch And Go

Six songs, sometimes half-heard vocals that could be more spoken word than sung, written as they were recorded, arrangements that grew out of an aggressive punk edge but aimed towards a heavy meditation and tension, like something was building, receding, never quite exploding. Spiderland became another one of those albums where its release, shortly after the band broke up, barely got notice, but grew into a monument as listeners and musicians locked into its mesmerizing impact, where the tools of rock and roll created new, strange possibilities.
