I'm a backer of the Theater Is Evil release. The compression doesn't bother me, but many times I wish they'd brought her voice up in the mix.

But, yeah, contact her and let her know. After released the Kickstarter deluxe version, she did go back and redo one of the tracks (don't remember which one right now), it came out much better than the original.

No Linux involved in her work - she's a Mac-based musician, based on the photos I've seen.
