Dunno, I marginally pay attention to the details. I only buy vinyl unless there's no other option. Such as the Littlest Birds, they haven't pressed anything into vinyl so I did get their CD. I do notice some bands mention their digital copies are "mastered for iTunes" or some nonsense.

Looking at the record itself now.

Recorded at Woodland Sound Studio in Nashville.
Mastered by Stephen Marcussen at Marcussen Mastering in Hollywood.

Vinyl cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood (so that ain't bad, is it?). I will say it seems to be have been made well, it's perfectly flat and that's something that's getting a little more rare recently. Even some 180 gram pressings have wobbles in them. This is I think a 150 gram, not super light but not super heavy.

BTW, Gillian Welch appears on one of the songs, which is cool.

Ken Bethea, guitarist from The Old 97s, talks about the sound he got on the "Jagged" recording. Turns out he used a Boss ME-30, which was about $250 back when he got it around 1998 or 1999. I think about this sometimes, that a lot of musicians don't obsess 1/10th as much as the people playing their records about quality of the gear and in many ways they seek out stuff that is noisy, colorful, different to it's anything but transparent.

Pulled this record out the other day, maybe kind of sappy New Wave but, dang it, I like it.

"Debbie Downer"
Courtney Barnett
Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit

Tell me when you're getting bored and I'll leave
I'm not the one who put the chain around your feet
I'm sorry for all of my insecurities, but they're just a part of me
"Envy is thin because it bites but never eats"
That's what a nice old Spanish lady once told me
"Hey Debbie-Downer turn that frown upside down and just be happy"

I don't ask too much of you
It's true and I can't read your mind

Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
I'm not fishing for your compliments

I'm growing older every time I blink my eyes
Boring, neurotic, everything that I despise
We had some lows, we had some mids, we had some highs
Sell me all your golden rules and I'll see
If that's the kind of person that I wanna be
If I'm not happy I'll be glad I kept receipts

I won't ask too much of you
I used to wonder what to wear

Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
I'm not fishing for your compliments
Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
I'm not fishing for your compliments
Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
I'm not fishing for your compliments
Don't stop listening, I'm not finished yet
I'm not fishing for your compliments
