I like atmosphere. Often, more depressive moods capture my interest: unlit alleys, hazy nocturnal skies, smoky nightclubs. Quiet Village's new album, Silent Movie, has its share of quiet moments. But the album is at its best when it embraces its summery, blissed-out side. It's enjoyable and accessible, and the cut-and-paste style meshes quite well. The group is another one of those producer duos, made up of Joel Martin and Matt Edwards, who has recorded as Radio Slave. Cinematic for sure and definitely worth a listen. Also by sure to check out their recent podcast at Resident Advisor.
