Album Review

The married couple David Gould and Caroline Schutz makes up the Inner Banks, although the two have roped in friends and associates from their other bands for their self-titled debut, an eclectic set consisting mostly of instrumentals written by Gould. Schutz contributes lyrics to two tracks, "Glittering Sky" and "Anthem," and she sings them, as well as providing wordless "ah" and "la" sounds on some of the other tracks. Her words tend toward the abstract (the "Glittering Sky" lyric is a depiction of a snow storm), but she might as well have collaborated on some of Gould's other compositions, since they sound like rich pop songs much of the time. In particular, "Buried West," with its horns, vibraphone, and lap steel, has an appropriately Western feel and might have supported an overarching melody and vocal. Without words, the tunes suggest movie soundtrack music, but they have an engaging chamber pop sound.

Customer Reviews

extremely addictive

Found these guys through a reference and haven't been able to put the album down since doing so. "Electric" in itself is one of the best tracks I've heard in months, and the album as a whole is extremely refreshing and unique in all aspects. Takes ethereal and instrumental to a whole new level. Highly recommended!

Not one bad song.

I am incredibly surprised as to why people have not spread the word about The Inner Banks. This group makes such great music. I was drawn to this band by "Buried West," but have switched my favorite to Electric. The obvious standout track introduces the listener into a dreamy soundscape with the use of a xylophone and bass, of all things. I can predict that this track will be used in many a film soundtrack. Check this group out. I am excited to see what they produce in the coming years.

Just heard "Electric" on Pandora and love it. Hypnotic, infectious groove. Hope these guys find a wide audience. This song is addictive.
