Quiet Village - Silent Move
This reissue is pressed on orange vinyl exclusively for Record Store Day. After three sought-after singles for the Whatever We Want label - plus remixes for the likes of Gorillaz, Fran Ois K, Mudd, Toby Tobias, James Yorkston, Grandada Bob, Black Devil and Cosmo Vitelli - Quiet Village step out of the shadows to present their 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.
