dpd project [Full List of Discs] [FAQ] [Find A Song or Band] [Message Board]      

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.

Random DPD Pick:

by: Codeine
from: The White Birch

Picked By: diamond
For: DPD: 007 - Side One Song Ones - The Art of Opening an Album

s p a r s e. If someone asked me and a thousand other people to sum up Codeine in one word, 9 times out of 10, "sparse," would be that one word.
I once read a review of this album that compared it to sitting in a bare concrete room with a fluorescent light hanging from the ceiling. To me that says it's cold and lacks emotion, but that review fails the record. It is a cold album, but to say it lacks in the emotion department is miserably missing the target. This album has so damn much emotion, it hurts. This is an enormous record, I would rather compare it to standing in the middle of a field of deep snow on a grey day, where the sun is a blurred bright spot in the middle of the grey sky. You know the warmth is there, or it was at one time, but it's too far away and it'll never reach you through all those melancholy damn clouds.
