Christopher Peifer, New York-based musician, songwriter, sound designer and producer


Garageland NYC is an analog and digital project studio in upper Manhattan, with a mobile unit, capable of recording virtually anywhere.

New Orleans’ The Luxurious Faux Furs have laid down some serious mojo to tape at Garageland, got dunked in our rockin’ reverb tank, and released three vinyl records:  Two 45rpm 7-inchers on Hexbeat, and their smokin’ LP, “Let Me Ride” on Beast Records, France (2014).   Our work together also appears on Beast Records’ Sampler, Volume 2:  “Only the Best”.
The studio is in post-production with Lex Loser, on their sweaty “What Rough Beast” EP, which we live-tracked in Brooklyn.
Congrats to Josh Diamond & The Brooklyn Soul, whose music was produced at Garageland (Chris played bass and organ), and subsequently placed in an episode of “Happy Endings” on ABC.
