Headgear Studio (also known as Headgear Recording Studio) is an American recording studio based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It was founded in 1998 by Alex Lipsen and Dan Long. In 2000, engineer Scott F. Norton joined as a partner and the studio relocated to its current facility near the Brooklyn waterfront. The studio was featured in an article in Tape Op magazine in October, 2008.[1] Headgear first attracted attention when the Yeah Yeah Yeahs recorded their 2003 debut album, Fever to Tell, there[2] with producer David Sitek. That album was nominated for a 2004 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.[3] Sitek subsequently recorded with his band, TV on the Radio at Headgear and built the adjoining Stay Gold Studio in the same building.[4]
