 sometimes I listen to Slint, public image ltd., boards of canada, etc. and I think about it afterward and have to say, "this is why I liked that. The awkward lyrics really struck a chord in me, the minimalist production created an air of anxiety that I loved." Then I shelf the record and don't listen to it for months. Slint are one of those bands that some people get and some people don't, and it's hard to fake when you don't get it. Here's a hint: the ones who love Slint don't have to write unfocused, incoherent essays about them.
