Quiet Village - Silent Movie
Orange vinyl. Much-anticipated debut album, Silent Movie. Comprised of master crate-digger Joel Martin and rising dance-music star Matt Edwards (a man of many monikers including Radio Slave and Rekid), and borrowing their name from Martin Denny's exotica masterpiece, Quiet Village make the old sound new (and vice versa). Influenced by Italian film soundtracks, library music, disco edits, acid rock and vintage soul, they mix the unlikeliest elements - bluesy guitar, chamber strings, air-raid sirens, shuffling breakbeats, even flutes and seagull cries - into an hour-long, beautiful reverie. Often cinematic in feel - their sound is unique and will wash over you in a refreshing embrace.
