Drone Trailer is a welcome respite from the hippie clichés that often sour Vermont duo Matt Valentine and Erika Elder's otherwise gorgeous atmospheric journeys. "Anyway" is a purification by fire that rounds up all the freedom rock they can muster and exorcizes it with feedback and fiery tension, while Elder chants lazily over the catharsis. From there, the record spreads out into infinity. It's easy to throw the Neil Young card at Valentine's rustic and weary warble in "The Hungry Stones," but such a comparison overlooks the outsider angle of his motives. Drone Trailer is a dark record filled with lingering drones, lurking weirdness and a quietude that revels in sparse and blissful isolation. 4 stars.
