Lonely Trailer are great storytellers. Their songs are loaded with harmonies, off-kilter lyrics, and unexpected hooks. They continually change directions as the dynamics lead you on, leaving you hanging, but then suddenly satisfying your audio appetite. Their sound has been favorably compared to the Minutemen, Captain Beefheart, XTC, and the Beach Boys.
Melody Maker: "The symmetry of it all is really quite spellbinding."
