Added DiffLines:

* {{Interquel}}: The Untitled EP was made of two songs that were recorded in 1989, two years after ''Tweez'' was recorded. It was released in 1994, years after the band had broken up, and is a good insight into Slint's musical evolution from ''Tweez'' to ''Spiderland''.

Slint is an American AlternativeRock band from Kentucky, usually given credit for jump-starting the PostRock genre along with Music/TalkTalk, as well as the MathRock genre. The band formed in 1986 from the ashes of HardcorePunk group Squirrel Bait, with Brian [=McMahan=] (guitar and vocals), David Pajo (guitar), and Britt Walford (drums) staying strong throughout the band's existence. The bassist would always be separate session musicians that would travel with the band.

They released their first album, ''Tweez'' to lukewarm reviews in 1989. Then, in 1991, they found their style and released their landmark album, ''Music/{{Spiderland}}'', which came on the heels of a year of landmark albums along with {{Music/Nirvana}}'s ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' for {{Grunge}}, Music/MyBloodyValentine's ''Music/{{Loveless}}'' for {{Shoegazing}}, and so on, and became very influential to PostRock alongside TalkTalk's ''Music/LaughingStock''.

* EpicRocking: "Don, Aman" (6:28), "Washer" (8:50), and "Good Morning, Captain" (7:39).

** "Don, Aman" (6:28) seems like it fits the trope on paper, but the track is actually just vocals and guitar.
