Album Notes
The Inner Banks is married couple Caroline Schutz and David Gould, and tends to feature a wide range of contributors and collaborators. The Brooklyn-based band began in 2005 as a home-recording project by David, a composer and multi-instrumentalist who had since 2000 led and played banjo in The Bootleg Remedy, an acclaimed Americana band inspired by western swing, bluegrass and dixieland. David ultimately felt drawn to incorporate new sounds that didn\'t fit the Bootleg Remedy\'s style, one of which was the sparsely performed voice of wife Caroline, and the two have been collaborating and co-writing ever since.

Prior to her involvement with The Inner Banks, Caroline had established herself as the singer and songwriter behind Folksongs For The Afterlife, whose full-length, “Put Danger Back In Your Life” (originally released by Parasol/Hidden Agenda) and EP (Enraptured UK) had earned the group features in Magnet, Time Out New York and Entertainment Weekly, as well as a song on Arena Rock’s “This is Next Year: A Brooklyn-Based Compilation.”

In a sense, The Inner Banks’ music combines the American roots instrumentation of the Bootleg Remedy with the more modern electronic sounds and otherworldly vocals found in Folksongs For The Afterlife. Orchestral instruments such as violins, cello, french horn and trumpet are often incorporated as well, adding an orchestral sheen reminiscent of ‘60s-era soundtracks.

Careful composition and sensitive articulation. Balanced technology.
In a word: Superb. In a few more words: addictive, soothing, driving, reflective. In many more words: The album is a stand alone work of careful composition and sensitive articulation representing a delightful musical stream of consciousness. The mix of electronic sounds and the natural instrument sounds is well done. Both the technician and the instrumentalist compliment each other with just the right amount of emphasis that you know you are listening to a modern piece of music but you also know you are hearing real people make real music.

And real music it is. While it may be obvious that some sounds were assembled in the studio, there is no doubt that the heartfelt strains of melodies were assembled in the soul of the composers. The two vocals are soothing and the melodies soon become a part of your “having a nice time” musical score for your life. The rest of the selections are instrumentals and worthy of a fine sound system and your undivided attention to appreciate their overall good effect on your being. Some are haunting, some are direct, all are wonderful.
