Who We Are
Luxury Wafers is the passion child of Landry and Peter Malick, raised with the help of an amazing network of dedicated, creative folks who also dig fine indie music.
Peter produces, engineers, mixes, writes and plays music. Hardly moderate, total immersion is his way. Long sleepless nights cozied up to his radio began for Peter in grade school. It wasn’t long before he pumped over to sketchier neighborhoods on his bike to discover the juiciest of records. Peter avidly listens to new indie music from his favorite blogs and podcasts. His professional experience goes way back to his first signing on the Vanguard label in 1968 when he was just 16. Peter engineers and mixes the Luxury Wafers sessions.
Nurtured from birth by a baby grand piano, Landry has also had a life-long love affair with music. When she was seven, she received an 8-track player with an array of tapes, the most rousing of which included the William Tell Overture. After endless hours manically riding an imaginary pony to that famed Lone Ranger theme song, her fate twisted again when a mysterious copy of Led Zeppelin’s IV was left behind in her room. Since then, she’s delighted in exploring myriad genres, ever connected to her core through music as she’s moved through life and various professional incarnations. She lives in LA with Peter, where she coordinates Luxury Wafers, helps to manage their music business and the Luxury Wafers Label, and edits this blog.
Peter and Landry owned and operated Chessvolt Recording Studios from 1/2006 until 10/2009, when LAUSD grabbed it by eminent domain to build a new elementary school. They currently work from their new home studio, aka The Pie and Tart Shop, as well as at various studios around LA.
Together, the pair brings friendly ears, techie lust and artistic vision to Luxury Wafers.
