Album Notes
14th Terrace Records: 8th Day's debut album Tracht Gut has a fresh sound and an irresistible style. The brothers compose, play, and sing their own original music with engaging lyrics and addictive hooks. With the release of tracht gut, Jewish music's new group brings diverse styles together in a seamless blend of folk, rock, soul and blues. Enjoy the unstudied perfection of sibling vocal harmonies. The Marcus brothers have composed a new chapter in Jewish music. Happy listening.

About the Name: There was once a king who made a seven-day banquet for all his subjects, but asked his closest friends to stay a little longer and make an eighth day. Our Sages apply this image to explain the difference between the seven days of Sukkot and the concluding festival, called Shemini Atzeret, the "eighth day."

Jewish mysticism says that the number seven alludes to nature and the number eight alludes to above nature. Nowadays it's still us and them, but on the 8th day it'll be just you and me, and when the sun won't set, you'll know it's my eighth day, and when your songs won't end, you'll know it's my eighth day.

Very Impressive
When can we see you live in NYC?

This is absolutley the freshest Jewish sound since Rava Mehemna.

You guys are the real deal.

Looking forward to seeing you live!

David Roth

Enjoyed it.
If you like something original this is right up your alley.

Great vocals. Good band.

The lyrics are by far the most original of any band in the genre.

MIke Rubin

Awesome. What a find!
First, respek to CDBaby. Your site is amazing and has allowed me to discover great music that is not distributed by the big names in the industry.

Second, this CD rocks. I guess the word i would use to best describe it is FRESH and ADDICTIVE.

WARNING: You will not be able to get these songs out of your head.

I was rasied with a healthy dose of Dylan, Joplin etc. Lately Ive been listening to more "Jewish" music. I must say this is pretty much exactly what ive been looking for. 8thday, you have a new proud street team member in Little Rock.

Very Kewl
Great CD. Highly Recommended. You have to wonder why they dont do better marketing of themselves. Interesting mix of voices. But the best is the poetry of the songs. Most original.

Two thumbs way up.

very authentic
great music - from "bar mitzva specials" to really gut-wrenching "ku ka recoo"

Very unique
saw these guys at Universal City Walk last year around Hanukah. They had the crowd bumpin to their groove. I bought the album. very enjoyable live. the cd is my kids (girl 11 and boy 9) favorite. Luckily not only dont i mind listening to it over and over in the car, im usually the one Q'ing it up.

if u live in California, it turns out they do like a show a month here. We are goin to another one in September.

chek em out. i think u will like.
