Prolific deepwoods Vermonters Matt Valentine (who played in the excellently ramshackle Tower Recordings) and Erika Elder are back with Drone Trailer. They’re not shy about releasing recordings (together and apart), but the offerings often show up in limited runs or on smaller labels. The forthcoming six-song collection Drone, though, is out 1/20 via the (slightly) easier to locate DiCristina. On it, the duo’s backed by three-dude strong Golden Road, as you ought to be able to deduce after listening to the dense, full-band psych of cathartic opener “Anyway.” Since we had his ear, we asked Valentine to unpack the lyrics. While you listen, let us know if his analysis helps.
We also offered the chance to win Diesel Jeans courtesy of Eagles Of Death Metal.
We have one pair of men’s and one pair of women’s courtesy of Eagles Of Death Metal. The winners get to choose their size. This is what they’ll look like once you put them on:
Their new one Heart On is in stores now.
CONTEST ENDS 12/17/08 AT 12PM EST.
