There’s news this past week that both Slint and Shellac may have new albums out this year. Actually, Shellac’s new one, Excellent Italian Greyhound, will be released on June 5th according to Pitchfork.
According to SuicideGirls, Slint is working on new material and looking to release it on Touch N Go. They appropriately point out that they’ll have a hard time topping 1991’s Spiderland. I discovered Slint and Shellac around the same time in 1994 when I was living in NYC. I think I bought At Action Park on CD and Spiderland on LP from the same store on Avenue A in the East Village. Jeez. That was thirteen years ago.
