Quiet Village is a UK-based band, who released their debut album Silent Movie in May of this year. The album reminded me of the compilation work of Andy Votel on Vertigo Mixed, one of my favorite records of the 2000s.

Silent Movie is definitely crate digging music but not “retro“, which I’ve come to see as a derogatory term. Just like Andy Votel’s Vertigo Mixed it celebrated the art of record collecting, one of my favorite pastimes between 1996 and 2002.
Gorillaz-Kids With Guns (Quiet Village Remix), hear the Burundi beats?
Silent Movie is bound to end up high on year-end-lists of people who known their music.
