Laura Ann Rettinger Album is floating half dream state, sleeping in a car in, empty parking lot, warm summer, staring up through leaf shadows of shading tree. Eternal hug under blanket, stillness and infinite empty agenda.

Simon relax as you sink into a warm, salty tub of scenic ambience that leaves you wanting to add more hot water from the tap with your toes. Favorite track: Fog.

In October of 2011, the massive concept double-album Pawleys Island was issued first on an intimate edition of 20 copies on 2x cassette tape. During the creation and recording of the Pawleys songs, I realized just how much love and expression I funneled into the melodies and composition, despite the album largely being carried in a very rhythmic techno-inspired vehicle. Taking these thoughts into consideration along with the fact that the nostalgic territories Pawleys mined were just as connected to records like Selected Ambient Works II, Walter Carlos' Sonic Seasonings and early orchestral influences like Satie and Debussy, it became clear to me that there was a beautiful ambient album hiding beneath the waves of Pawleys Island. Dedicating myself to the pursuit of such a notion, I began recording this album of ambient versions of Pawleys pieces somewhere near the last 1/4 of the recording sessions for the album proper.

I think it is important to note that the songs on Inland By Night are not merely beatless counterparts of PI material, rather they are entirely their own identities, memories and locations. The movements from PI will no doubt be recognizable, although they are considerably altered in pace, processing, tone and color, and both sides have been backed by an assemblage of field recordings: the exact length of a car drive from the beach in Surfside to my father's home in rural Loris, complete with the subtle sounds of tire traction on pavement, layered carefully alongside recordings of the sun rising at dawn over a humid marsh. Inland By Night is an approximated reimagining of those same Pawleys Island memories. Stoned, worn out from a long night of work or partying (or both) and driving home in the early morning hours to sleep and dream of the blissful shores I would one day tread in my creative travels. So here we are, years later, together in longing for that same happy sleep.
