Note that [i]Trailway Ramble[/i] is not really a new song; it is a new version of the [i]Time Off[/i] song:

Also, the article seems to imply [i]Way Out Weather[/i] is his first solo release, but he’s quite a few under his belt already. Way more than Kurt Vile ever recorded with his Violators. ;)

I’m puzzled by the comment as well. On RYM, as voted by thousands of music consumers, it’s their second best album: (trailing the best by only 0.01 point)

On Metacritic, not counting the career spanning boxset, it is even considered to be their best album:

So I guess the remark in the article is mostly anecdotal in nature.
