Death Cab for Cutie
Just over a year after their previous full-length, Thank You For Today, famed indie-rockers Death Cab for Cutie release their new The Blue EP. Each of the EP's 5 tracks “share a similar conception but different births.” The lead single "Kids in '99" is a tribute to the three children who died in 1999 from the Olympic Pipeline explosion in Bellingham, Washington.

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!
