MRG257 | Release Date October 11, 2005

Lambchop is a band from Nashville, Tennessee who have been making and releasing recordings for some 10 odd years. Hands Off Cuba is a semi-reclusive 'electronic duo' also from Nashville, who create musical constructions (and reconstructions) in their bedrooms and living rooms. Having heard some of the music created by Hands off Cuba, Lambchop asked the duo if they would be interested in putting together a short collaborative EP of music based on Lambchop recordings. In the same spirit of collaboration Lambchop would include a new track that was based on a Hands Off Cuba recording. The result is the CoLAB EP, some new, beautiful, thoughtful music proving that the music coming out of Nashville is more diverse than one might expect.

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.
