The vinyl sounds pretty good. The music is a bit slow.

The songs on Spiders are bittersweet tales of an American suburban upbringing and a longing for the innocence of childhood. But with adulthood right around the corner (he was seventeen at the time) they come from the perspective of a young man with just enough wisdom to know that it was time to move on. His modest voice airs over an equally low-key arrangements (often just acoustic guitar and electric bass; there are no drum tracks on the record) created by Zwerling with help from producers Lenny Kaye and Richard Robinson, who both play on the album.
Many of the songs are lyrically straight-forward, and recall Brian Wilson’s more direct numbers like “Busy Doin’ Nothin’, ” while others possess an almost Syd Barrett-like wordplay (sample title: “Turtles vs. Green Ants”). Like Syd’s The Madcap Laughs, Spiders In the Night is an early example of lo-fi production, and as with Paul McCartney’s first solo record, Spiders resembles an intimate home demo recording. The tunes here also bring to mind another outsider, Alexander “Skip” Spence, and the psych-folk of his lone LP Oar, which Zwerling himself claims as an influence. (Drastic Plastic)Track Listing
