MV & EE with the Golden Road, 'Drone Trailer' (DiCristina)

Drone Trailer
Critical Mass
Label: DiCristina

by Jon Young

Having recorded more than 9,000 albums since the start of the decade -- okay, that's a slight exaggeration -- Vermont residents Matt Valentine and Erika Elder exhibit signs of creeping dementia on Drone Trailer. With his piercing whine and wheezy harmonica, Valentine suggests a damaged, decomposing clone of acoustic Neil Young. He's intriguing on the shambolic, ten-minute "Weatherhead Hollow," encircled by spidery electric guitars, though a little too comatose elsewhere. More thrillers such as the raggedy, psychedelic "Anyway," which showcases Elder's dazed warbling, would enhance the proceedings significantly.
