SpinTunes 4: Round 1 Songs

Unfortunately I had to leave the LP before the official entries even got played. My internet connection was just too crappy to handle a livestream. I did keep the chat window open & it looked like people had fun though. Seemed to hang around the 35-40 viewer mark most of the time. I really owe Tom a big thanks for running the LP. I obviously couldn't do it in my current situation.

The songs are now available for FREE download, and you can vote for your favorite entries as well. Many of you will be asking friends and family to support you in the popular vote. That's great, but when you do, please ask them to listen to all the songs & vote for their favorites. You can vote for up to 5 different people, so they might as well listen to everyone.

Until the round 2 songs are posted I will only allow people to download the round 1 album as a whole. But even after that, PLEASE download the entire album vs downloading just a handful of songs while the contest is on going. BandCamp limits how many free downloads I can give away, and 1 album download counts the same as 1 song download.

With 34 entries turned in for round 1, that means there will be 10 elimintions for the first 3 rounds. That would leave 4 finalist for round 4. Good luck everyone.

You can find the album on BandCamp by clicking the image below:
