Instrumentals we love, part one: And so it begins…

“Victoria’s Secret” by Quiet Village | While working on classical week last month, Rainy and I had a discussion as to how we’d title blog entries that revolve around instrumentals – because, of course, there are no lyrics to name it with. Fast forward to today, and a new occasional series on earthings! focusing on, well, instrumentals. I heard this a couple of days ago on FIP, that harbinger of lovely music. Quiet Village, aka Joel Martin and Matt Edwards, released their first full-length album in 2008, and this track pretty much sums their name up: a quiet village, only a bit more film soundtrack-y, a bit touchy-feely, a bit sob-worthy. Like the Avalanches, they make their sound by pasting things together (in this song’s case, it’s built on a song from the Chi-Lites) and turning it into something different. Or close to that. If you have lots of TV library music at your disposal, after all – Joel bought a lot of them, apparently, from a BBC sale – then why not make the most of it? And I am thankful.
