MRG229 | Release Date October 7, 2003

It's not often that a group or artist releases a self-titled record 5 albums into their career. Eponymous albums are usually reserved for debuts, but for The Ladybug Transistor this new record is a debut of sorts. For the first time in their career the Ladybugs ventured out from their home studio in the Marlborough Farms section of Brooklyn, NY and traveled cross-country to Wavelab studios in Tucson, AZ to record with Craig Schumacher. The band arrived in Arizona with a fully realized batch of songs, having refined their new compositions on the road through tours in both the U.S. and Europe. Having worked with the likes of Calexico, Giant Sand, Neko Case and Richard Buckner, Schumacher brought a fresh ear and new vision to the Ladybug Transistor sound.

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.
