Annie Hayden's second full length solo album, The Enemy of Love can be summed up in a phrase once coined by Time Out NY to describe Merge Records. Indeed, this record is the sound of "Indie Rock aging gracefully." Annie's current batch of songs arrives with fewer jagged edges than the music of her former band, Spent and includes a fantastic cover version of The Replacements' "Swingin' Party." On The Enemy of Love Annie's voice is soft and lush and the primarily piano based tunes are steeped in gorgeous production courtesy of Glen Tarachow at the famous Kaufman Astoria Studios.

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.
