The Inner Banks Songs from Disko Bay

The Inner Banks Songs from Disko Bay
Starting off this album of eight slow psychedelic songs with one that's warped, glowing and full of different instrumentation and arrangements named "Lemon Tree" is more than just promising, it's sweet. It, as well as the rest of the songs, breeds life into the music of married couple Caroline Schutz and David Gould not only because of the soft, driven melodies but for the fact that it was partly made while Schutz was preparing to give birth to twin girls ― you can feel the love. The couple don't falter once; they bring you into the fuzzy comfort zone they created. Schutz's vocals could carry the album on their own; she floats through each song in a sleepy haze, as if connecting the notes to the stars in the sky. That's not to say Gould's instrumentation is at all lost; his string arrangements are gorgeous and blissfully uneasy compared to his light drone. Songs from Disko Bay is one album that will find no trouble fitting into your lazy Sunday roster. (DAG!)
