In honor of their Fall 2010 US tour/takeover, Let's Wrestle have generously offered up two brand new songs for digital download: "Getting Rest" and "When I Was In Hospital." Here's what the songsmiths have to say about 'em:

"'Getting Rest' is about our first trip to the states when we were completely unknown here (apart from NYC and Austin)," says Wesley Patrick Gonzalez. "Me and Mike Lightning went for a stroll in Baltimore and were being idiots, taking photos of ourselves doing Kung Fu moves, and a homeless guy asked us for a cigarette. He said, 'Welcome to Baltimore!' and Mike said he was welcome in London anytime. The man started crying and asked us to get him out of there. This song is about being ignorant to the messed-up stuff that goes on around you."

"'When I Was In Hospital' is a song I wrote when I started thinking about how I’d cope with being terminally ill," Wesley continued. "It's more about what I’d say to a friend than actually being ill myself. I'm afraid both of these songs are quite morbid, but get used to it! You are looking at the new Radiohead! Proggy sobbing!"

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.
