Slint is an American rock band consisting of Brian McMahan (guitar and vocals), David Pajo (guitar), Britt Walford (drums and vocals), Todd Brashear (bass on Spiderland), and Ethan Buckler (bass on Tweez). They formed in Louisville, Kentucky, United States, in 1986. Slint's first album Tweez was recorded by legendary engineer Steve Albini in 1987 and released in obscurity on the Jennifer Hartman Records label in 1989. It was followed two years later by the critically acclaimed Spiderland, released on the independent label Touch and Go Records. Though they have never recorded since 1991, they are considered by critics and musicians alike to be a major influence on the post-hardcore, math rock, and post-rock scenes, Spiderland alone being cited as one of the landmark records of the 1990s and as among the greatest albums of all time.
They have reunited sporadically since 2005.
