In 1991, Nirvana exploded with Nevermind, instantly changing the musical landscape and ushering "alternative" music into the mainstream. Their influence was immediate and undeniable, that year, another band would release an album that would also have a lasting impression on a new generation of musicians. Four young lads from Louisville, Kentucky known as Slint quietly dropped their final album Spiderland, but in the two decades since, it has grown into one of the most post-rock albums of all time. And now, the story of the band and those songs is being told.

Slint Spiderland

In 1991, Nirvana exploded with Nevermind, instantly changing the musical landscape and ushering "alternative" music into the mainstream. Their influence was immediate and undeniable, but that year, another band would release an album that would also have a lasting impression on a new generation of musicians. Four young lads from Louisville, Kentucky known as Slint quietly dropped their final album Spiderland, but in the two decades since, it has grown into one of the most post-rock albums of all time. And now, the story of the band and those songs is being told.

Indie label Touch 'N Go are reissuing Spiderland in an expansive, very limited edition this spring, and part of the package — as we previously revealed — is a new documentary "Breadcrumb Trail," directed by Spike Jonze collaborator Lance Bangs. And the trailer for the film is finally here. And it looks pretty damn great.

Featuring interviews with folks like Steve Albini, Corey Rusk, James Murphy, David Yow, Ian Mackaye, Jason Noble and more, and featuring a surprising amount of archival footage (revealing just how young these guys were at the time), the documentary is look at how Brian McMahan, David Pajo, Britt Walford and Todd Brashear were part of a specific scene, in a particular time and place, and created something truly iconic. 

"Breadcrumb Trail" will be screening March 11 through March 13 in Los Angeles at Cinefamily, March 14 through March 15 in Philadelphia at PhilaMOCA and March 20th in San Francisco at the Roxie Theater. Hopefully more dates to come. The Spiderland box set arrives in April. Watch below.
