Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

For: DPD: 074 - Wild Kingdom

This song was originally released on the compilation A Cat-Shaped Hole in My Heart, all of the songs on it are about kitty cats. I don't really know if there's much of a difference between the two versions, but I'm using the one from their self titled debut album.
This track is a tribute to the independent spirit of the kitty, sung from the point of view of the kitty. I could be convinced that it's from the point of view of said kitty's owner that's become very cat-like and singing to the cat.
The excellence of this song, which is undeniable, is the slow build from the sparse instrumentation with the isolated voice to the multi-layered orgasm of sound that rounds it out.
