MRG414 | Release Date 2011

Nursing Home, the second album by Let’s Wrestle, was recorded in Chicago with Steve Albini. With themes that include being trapped in the suburbs and dancing boys on drugs, the band show that their view of the world is the same, they’ve just put on some darker sunglasses. Let’s Wrestle may have lost some of their naivety lyrically, but it’s certainly still there.

If you ask singer Wesley Patrick Gonzalez what the record sounds like he’ll tell you Thin Lizzy and The Cars, which I guess to some extent is true. Though I won’t bother to list other bands the record brings to mind, I will say that it’s heavier than its predecessor, maybe due to Albini’s engineering, but the underlying melody displayed previously remains, with the few quiet songs on Nursing Home being perhaps the most poignant the band have recorded. Let’s Wrestle have grown up and reckon they’re heavier and depressed but they’re still laughing on the inside.

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.
