The annual RPM Challenge ended March 1, and that means thousands of albums created entirely during the month of February are suddenly available.

In 2010 local steamcrunk favorites Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys released a free RPM Challenge album called “28 Seeds: The Last Radio Play” that led to an acclaimed stage translation in April 2012 at the Boston Center for the Arts.

Now the band has another RPM challenge album available for a name-your-own-price download: “Trapdoors,” 18 tracks that include such enigmatically named songs as “mutant childstar part 1,” “Hairless Werewolf” and “PONY PONY PONY PONY PONY PONY PONY bunny rabbit” – which, if you watch the above video, turns out to be not as enigmatically named as you might think.

Download “Trapdoors” here and let us know about other worthy RPM Challenge albums here.

Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys has a show scheduled for March 23 at Brighton Music Hall.
