  1. When Shearwater’s 7th album Animal Joy was released on Sub Pop in 2012, I thought “oh no”…

    I have not been impressed by the sound quality of the Sub Pop US releases but it happened that this US RTI pressing is one of the very few which was better pressed than the EU pressing.

    The SQ of this US release is very good indeed, it is slightly better the EU Optimal Media pressing with with slightly better dynamics — slightly clearer and packed a better punch. It is however not quite as impressive as Shearwater’s Island Arc Trilogy on Matador, which includes the 2007 Palo Santo (reissue), 2010 Rook and 2010 The Golden Archipelago.
