The Theme for CD8 is ...


And we're under starter's orders again. The new theme has been declared after a few email discussions. Again - 11 of us have (up to) 7 minutes and 16 seconds of music to select with at least one selection being on the theme of water.

The name of the compilation is still being mooted, but W8t Ones and Hydr8 have been proposed.

Although the announcement was only made today, I think I have probably already made my mind up what my selections will be.

I will share a couple of selections I won't be going for because I have already submitted them for previous compilations (one for the former Department Christmas CD, and one for the former Card School CD).

Madina Lake - Never Take Us Alive 

Whilst I might otherwise be tempted to lump this in with other American Post-Punk tracks, there is just something about this which really appeals to me.

Lost In The Trees - Walk Around The Lake

This song was the 'exit music for a film' I watched, and felt instantly compelled to 'Shazam' to find out more about, I subsequently bought the album, and as is so typical, found this to be the only track of its calibre on there. Having said that, it is a rare album indeed which has nothing but songs of this calibre on it.
