The Take Off and Landing of Everything

PMC endorsees and Mercury Prize winners, elbow, have released their new album “The Take Off and Landing of Everything”, which was mixed and mastered using PMC loudspeakers.

The second album since the Mercury Prize winning “The Seldom Seen Kid”, “The Take Off and Landing of Everything” has been received to critical acclaim by the music press. Written and recorded at Blueprint studios in Salford and Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, the mixing was achieved using PMC’s IB2S 3 way monitors and the new active twotwo.6 nearfields, which were recently installed by the band at their facility.

The band exclusively chose PMC monitors for the studio and models from PMC's twenty series for their homes.  With PMC speakers across all locations it enabled them to record in their dedicated studio and hear the results sounding exactly the same in the more relaxed atmosphere of their homes. 

The continuity of loudspeaker voicing though to the mastering stage was further ensured by again using London’s Metropolis Mastering, where it was mastered by Tim Young, using PMC BB5 XBD-A large-scale monitors.  Metropolis has relied on PMC for many years for the production of a long list of worldwide hits.

"elbow fans will appreciate how much elbow pride themselves in the quality of their work from start to finish and this is borne out by the use of our loudspeakers. If you really want to hear it as they intended, PMC is the obvious choice.” says Paul O’Farrell Stevens of PMC.

PMC has three pairs of tickets to elbow’s forthcoming tour available for lucky winners in its facebook competition. Visit www.facebook.com/PMCSpeakers for details.
