Recorded At The Village: Miguel’s Album “Wildheart”

“Wildheart” is a fantastic concept album, which sounds unlike anything else you’ll hear in 2015. From the straight-forward R&B of his first album, to the alternatively influenced “Kaleidoscope Dream”, Miguel has managed to augment his style yet again; This time with the help of funky rock & roll guitar, and trippy, ambient synths. This album is undeniably sexy.

What makes us love “Wildheart” even more? Much of the album was written and recorded here at The Village! Miguel has been a part of The Village family for years now, and was an absolute delight to work with, as always. We’re honored to be a part of this incredible record! Congratulations Miguel!

Recorded At The Village: Melody Gardot’s “Currency Of Man”

On June 2nd, Melody Gardot released her fourth studio album, “Currency Of Man.” The album was recorded here at The Village, and produced by Grammy Award winning producer, Larry Klein.

“Currency Of Man” is stylistically different for Gardot, featuring her primarily on electric guitar – a departure from her typical piano heavy tracks. Furthering it’s uniqueness, the album was tracked to Analog tape, and tuned to 432hz.

We think the album is an absolute work of art, and Billboard agrees! Just this week, “Currency Of Man” went to #1 on Billboard’s Jazz Chart. Check it out here!
