The Quiet Village album dropped this past week to mass hysteria and tears of joy from beards across the globe. Now it is no secret that Quiet Village is basically Matt Edwards and Joel Martin's re-edit project and I found it quite funny that people on a certain 'spotters board got their panties in a bunch because they weren't all original tracks. We all know that Too High To Move is basically Janis Ian Fly Too High with a vocal stuck onto it and here is another original for you to cast your ears over.
Pacific Rhythm is in fact an edit of Ryuichi Sakamoto & The Kakutougi Sessions' You're A Friend To Me off Summer Nerves, which is an album well worth buying if you haven't already. Big favourite with my mom funnily enough who the more balearic records and DJs I listen to the more I realise that her collection is firmly rooted in the sand-between-your-toes section. I can't really tell you which one is better as they're so similar but Joel and Martin have definitely done just about enough to warrant it a place on their superb album.
