“THINGS AREN’T GOING TO GET BETTER. NOT EVERYTHING HEALS WITH TIME AND PROBLEMS DON’T JUST GO AWAY. PROBLEMS HAUNT YOU, INFECT YOU, AND IN TIME BECOME A PART OF WHO YOU ARE. YOU MIGHT FIND WAYS TO DISTRACT YOURSELF OR TRY AND FORGET BUT EVERY TIME YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR YOU’LL ONLY SEE REMINDERS OF WHAT YOU HATE. EVIL SURROUNDS US AND IN TIME, BECOMES A PART OF WHO WE ARE. LET THIS BAND BE A REMINDER OF THAT.”

Towards the end of Chris LoPorto’s description of his band Can’t Swim, you’ll note the use of the word ‘evil’. He couldn’t help gravitating towards it during the making of their second album, to such a degree that the working titles of its songs were littered with it; a catch-all word that summarized the malevolence he felt about a number of elements in his life, be it the events of a past he continues to be governed by, and the wrongdoing he’s observed in his immediate surroundings and society as a whole.

This Too Won’t Pass was that album’s eventual title, an inversion of a well-known adage about time healing all things, because, as Chris suggests, he doesn’t entirely believe it can. Can’t Swim articulate our struggles with the people, places and events that continue to shape our lives and scrape our hearts, but with one clear distinction: they show us that while exploring them may provide us with a momentary sense of clarity, it doesn’t necessarily bring us the clear-cut catharsis we’re told it will.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
