Overview

Composer Marc Streitenfeld's score for director Jake Scott's intimate family drama Welcome to the Rileys is a low-key effort played on a small collection of acoustic folk instruments. Streitenfeld himself plays banjo, piano, guitar, and percussion, adding other musicians on harp, mandolin, upright bass, violin, and cello. They play slow, contemplative pieces sometimes (e.g., "Alive") with a country feel, but always expressing quiet turmoil. After Streitenfeld's 12 cues, the soundtrack album contains six songs in a variety of styles, beginning with Kitty, Daisy & Lewis' cover of Canned Heat's "Going Up the Country" and including a bluesy performance of "Go Down, Sunshine" by Odetta; Joe Simon's soulful "Teenager's Prayer"; Shiny Toy Guns' dance-rock tune "Le Disko"; the Kills' alternative rock "U.R.A. Fever"; and Ying Yang Twins' hip-hop "Jigglin." In the film, such source music no doubt makes sense in the scenes in which it is used, although it makes the album seem like a miscellany.
