Two new songs:

Let's Go - About bands having to go hit the road

Sudsy's - A club I used to go to in the 80's that had washing machines

Need to keep moving to kick this RPM thing though the goalposts!

Well I've updated it but I only see 5 songs, even though you called Let's Go #7

WantU:
this is the same link as the one for NuWave

NuWave:
good openening, good drive to this
not totally onboard with the synth use, though. :)

Baby:
like the sparse instrumentation on this.

Home:
southern fried goodness
almost doesn't sound like you, very different

Pop:
dunno, like some elements to this but it seems to lack a certain energy, like you're still working the song ideas out or something.
this is probably one that would benefit from some extra time spent on it.
grew on me a little bit after listening to the whole thing.

congrats on meeting your goal.
you even had a few days to spare, go dave! :)

:^: Good job, Dave.

I liked "Baby" and the guitar on "Home". The first two were the same, but don't worry, we believe you actually had 10. ;)

I personally didn't like the experience but I like that it got me writing again. I doubt I'll go through this next year.

Thanks for the comments Lucas! Yes, I discussed it on the show, but I think what I really learned this year was a better workflow. You could tell by the end that my demos ended up sounding much more complete.

Good that it got you writing Cracks! I think that is the point anyway. Use the RPM for whatever helps you!

I have been seriously slacking after my February effort but I may get back into the swing soon.

And here is the "missing tune". It was actually one of my personal top 3 from the RPM effort:
