MRG517 | Release Date October 8, 2013

I wanted Ruby Red to have a different feel from my previous record. I labor and obsess over song structure, and production is just as important as the songs themselves. I always battle with whether or not I want the raw feel of the demos to be the final product. With the Black Mountain sessions, I feel like the songs coexist with the record, devil on the right shoulder to Ruby Red’s angel on the left. - Stuart McLamb of The Love Language

What is the difference between MP3 and FLAC files?

Merge offers the highest quality MP3s possible. They are encoded without DRM using the LAME version 3.97 encoder at non-variable rate of 320 kbps. At this quality level, the sound is essentially indistinguishable from a CD.

We also offer FLAC digital music files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. As such, FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of a given piece of music.

MP3s eliminate audio data in order to reduce file size. FLAC files are by definition 'lossless' and are a perfect digital copy of the original source material. Because of this, a FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file. While FLAC audio is ideal if you listen to your music on a higher-end home stereo, or enjoy close-listening on headphones, it does not have as widespread playback support as the MP3 format.

*Note: FLAC files do not work in iTunes.
