Let’s Kick It by CarrotAdventure

Let’s Kick It is an irrepressibly bouncy and happy chiptune / synthpop song.

Prenup by sredefer

Prenup is a cute indie pop song – it has an accordion, whistling, banjolele, and electric piano. This marks sredefer’s first appearance here, and also to Mefi Music!

Strawman by hellojed

Strawman is a noodly electronic song. It’s got fuzzy lofi synths and a cowbell.

Happy birthday cortex!

Castles by azarbayejani

Castles is an instrumental electronic remix of Bach’s Prelude in G, based on a performance by Pablo Casals.

Little Donut Party by uncleozzy

Little Donut Party is a happy bouncy goofy catchy short synthpop song.

We Close Our Eyes by askmeaboutLOOM

We Close Our Eyes is a pretty well-done one-man indie pop cover of an Oingo Boingo song.

Edit, 2013-10-05 – Whoops, attached the mp3, finally.

Kingsfold by nthdegx

Kingsfold is an electronic cover of an old folk song, which contributed the tune to a few hymns. This is a noodly and sorta relentless version.

Locate the Pin by gergtreble

Locate the Pin is some fun garage rock.

Thank You by sputgop

Thank You is just a fun and cool hip-hop song.

Heroin by uncleozzy

Heroin is uncleozzy’s straightforward rock take on the Velvet Underground song.

Booty Don’t by cloeburner

Booty Don’t is a spacy dubby remix that really (unrecognizably) works over the original, Booty Dew by GS Boyz (not recommended).

Femme Fatale by cortex

Femme Fatale is cortex’s piano rock / garage rock cover of the Velvet Underground song. It’s his second shot at it; his first take involved a Christopher Walken impression, which also makes a secret appearance in the background here.

I am looking for a used car. by mintcake!

I am looking for a used car. is a dancy electronica song, with some unusual vocal samples drawn from a call-in line for the podcast around the tenth anniversary.

By way of limited explanation: Fred was looking for a used car, and that’s Faint of Butt reading Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky.”

Case Study #3 by davejay

Case Study #3 is a loopy trip-hop song based on samples from a 1960’s LSD PSA from Lockheed, which had lush instrumentation and trippy oil projection visuals and a really delightful story about LSD and hot dogs and a musical sting befitting a True Tale of Hot Dog Murder!

I fell into kind of a drug PSA hole researching this and the thread linked from the song.

the vase (demo) by edlundart

the vase is a stripped-down acoustic demo of a song, just an acoustic guitar and a guy sometimes singing in falsetto.

The World’s Most Blown Mind by gergtreble

The World’s Most Blown Mind is just a fun garage rock tune.

Enceladus by surrendering monkey

Enceladus is a synthy bit of electronica. Think of Vangelis and Tangerine Dream.

Heroin by chococat

Heroin is a garage rock cover of the Velvet Underground song, primarily singing and a guitar. (Though, there is a high-pitched drone.)

ruido jabb hat by konono

ruido jabb hat is a “simple disco track,” with a glitchy, distorted, fuzzy, and overdriven groove. It’s danceable.

Happy [Tenth] Birthday, Metafilter by cortex

Happy [Tenth] Birthday, Metafilter is a bluesy piano pop lovesong to Mefi. There’s an acoustic guitar and cortex harmonizing with himself.

Sunday Morning by micayetoca

Sunday Morning is a mellow Caribbean take on the Velvet Underground song. The string instrument here is the cuatro; the genre is danzon; the whistling and percussion feel organic.

Another Hour Away by clcapps

Another Hour Away is a kinda relentlessly musically upbeat synthpop dance song.
