Beautiful words and music from @mandymooremm. Out now.
“Making this record was an opportunity to dig a little deeper and share an important facet of who I am with the world. The process nourished and centered me in ways I never expected and I have so much gratitude for the chance to acknowledge this part of myself again. I hope it helps you reflect on your own life in all ways and brings you much joy. ⁣

Over a decade in the making, I am so pleased to finally present, Silver Landings. “

Returning to her musical roots, singer/s ongwriter Mandy Moore debuted her new album, "Silver Landings," on March 6th. Recorded here at United, “Silver Landings” was produced by Mike Viola, features her husband and frontman of the band Dawes, Taylor Goldsmith (guitar), Davey Faraghar (bass), Griff Goldsmith of Dawes (drums), and Sean Douglas, (producer/songwriter).

According to Moore, the first single, "Save A Little For Yourself," is the other half of a love song that "we don't always talk about or acknowledge."

She added, "No one's playing to a click track. It's all happening live on the floor, which gives everything a magic and spontaneity that's so different from what I've done on any other record. I wanted to make a very California-sounding record that you could listen to driving up and down the Pacific Coast Highway on a beautiful weekend day."

Pictured L-R in United Recording's Studio B are Davey Faraghar, Griff Goldsmith, Mike Viola, Sean Douglas, Mandy Moore, and Taylor Goldsmith.

Charismatic singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright tracked new songs for his tenth album here at United Recording. The album's first single, "Trouble in Paradise," which explores the fashion industry with applicable themes about the world at large, was released in October.

"We chose United to record strings and horns for Rufus' album, largely because of the exceptional equipment and the superb acoustics," said Froom. "I've worked on projects over the course of many years at the studio and have always had great results."

Praised by The New York Times for his "genuine originality," Wainwright has established himself as one of the foremost male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. With ten albums and numerous tracks on compilations and film soundtracks, he has collaborated with musical heavyweights such as Elton John, David Byrne, Boy George, Joni Mitchell, Pet Shop Boys and producer Mark Ronson, among others.

"Trouble in Paradise" is currently available to stream on leading digital music services. To learn more about Wainwright, please visit: http://rufuswainwright.com

“One of my rarest tape machines, the Mitsubishi X-80.
It was one of the very first 1/4" 2 track digital reel to reel recorders in production. Only approximately 200 of them were made between 1980 and 1986. In 1986, Mitsubishi came out with its predecessor, the X-86.

This one is an early, wood panelled model from November 1980.” - Dan Johnson #unitedarchiving
