Can't Swim Share New Song Congratulations, Christopher Hodge Ahead Of 'This Too Won't Pass'

Friday, 09 November 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Can't Swim have released a new track ahead of the release of their second LP.

Congratulations, Christopher Hodge was the last song written for 'This Too Won't Pass', which is out on November 16, and takes its title from the band's manager and longtime friend. Vocalist Chris LoPorto explained:

"[Christopher] and his wife are having a baby the same month our new record comes out and the title was a way to bless their new family together. We grew up playing music with each other and he is one of the main reasons Can’t Swim exists.

"We had all the demos done and ready to be recorded when he asked me to write one more song saying, 'You never know when creativity will strike.' A few days before entering the studio I sat down and wrote the whole song in a few hours and sent it to him. He’s always pushing me to work hard at this band and has believed in it since day one. It made all the sense in the world to name it in honor of him due to the fact he was the sole reason I wrote it."

The track follows previously shared singles My Queen and Sometimes You Meet The Right People At The Wrong Times. Can't Swim will hit the road in the US with Trophy Eyes, Seaway, Microwave and Hot Mulligan this autumn.

Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'

A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
