So as you probably know, Slint is Spiderlanding Saturday night at the Showbox. Make sure to get there early, though, to catch the Drift. At a late-April show at Neumo's opening for Japanese noise-gazers Mono, the San Francisco quartet played a mellow but engrossing set of ambient, jazzy, dubby shoegaze that lived up to the band's name. Woozy guitar shapes intersected with keyboard drones, trumpet, upright bass, and laid-back drumming (at one point the drummer used a bow on his crash cymbals to spooky cool effect). These guys are definitely fans of Miles Davis's fusion period, that's for sure. After the jump, a few more photos I shot that night.
