So this LP was made by Precision Record Pressing-- a partnership with the less than reliable GZ Media-- using their new record pressing machines. I'm impressed. This pressing is clean, flat, and quiet. Overall much better than what I usually receive when I buy vinyl made by GZ Media. If you like Wye Oak-- and I do!-- this will be a very pleasant surprise. Let's hope Merge Records continues this promising relationship and has more product made by Precision Record Pressing!
