L’Etoile by malocchio

L’Etoile is a beautifully mellow and ethereal song, with non-verbal vocals.

You Are Somewhere Around Here by jtron

You Are Somewhere Around Here is a remix of a song by the Maybenauts, and it’s largely timestretched: the song is slowed down, which lends the guitars a very heavy sound, like distorted shoegazer guitars.

A Nighttime Song by malocchio

A Nighttime Song is a dreamy pop song, with a bit of a dark side to it. The background “pipe organ” makes me think of a carousel in a nightmare.

It’s malocchio’s first time on the podcast, with their first song!

Syllogismobile by doubtfulpalace

Syllogismobile is an interesting poppy song – the trumpets make it seem like a 50’s pop song, with lyrical references to symbolic logic.

Just This Once by MaiaMadness

Just This Once is, well, a great, angry, and woman-fronted rock song.

running into by IngeChiles

running into is a lovely and minimal song – just IngeChiles singing with her ukelele.

Chased by MaiaMadness

Chased is a jangly electronic pop song.

Wuthering Heights by MaiaMadness

Wuthering Heights is an acoustic version of the Kate Bush song. It’s sort of unplugged, and sparser than the original track.

At the Drive-In by frecklefaerie

At the Drive-In is a pretty, earnest, gender-bending, and acoustic take on Poison’s “Talk Dirty to Me.”

With the remixes and covers, I’ve gone back and added tags for the decades: 1930s (2 songs), 1940s (1), 1950s (2), 1960s (20), 1970s (13), 1980s (27), 1990s (17), and 2000s (23). There’s nothing under the 2010s yet, as we’re only five months into 2010 in the podcast.

14 Candles by Jon-A-Thon

14 Candles is a lovely, slow, and lush acoustic pop song, and I love the vocals and the piano.

mermaid by peterkins

mermaid is a lovely and sedate jazz song. Picture seeing a chanteuse in a lounge.

Live Life by InfidelZombie

Live Life is a cover of the Kinks song – it’s just a fun lofi and NSFW rock song.

Caminito verde by micayetoca

Caminito verde is a Spanish folk cover of a Alejo Durán song – though it sounds like acoustic guitar and harmonica, it’s really a requinto jarocho and a melodica.

Red River Valley by IngeChiles

Red River Valley is a sweet old cowboy song, with nice harmonizing between IngeChiles and her sister, backed by a ukelele.

It’s IngeChiles’ first appearance here!

Best of the Web by ocherdraco

Oh! My! Gawd! Becky! Best of the Web is ocherdraco’s ode to Metafilter, sung over “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-a-Lot, the hip-hop anthem for big butts.

gravity by kimyo

gravity is some laidback woman-fronted trip-hop. It’s from frequent guests kimyo and his band Hot Bitch Arsenal, who last showed up here a year ago.

Last Saturday was Metafilter Music’s seventh birthday! Yay! *blows a party horn, throws confetti in the air*

Single Ladies Want Candy by davejay

Single Ladies Want Candy is a fun mashup of a couple of pop songs – “Single Ladies” by Beyoncé (2008) and new wave classic “I Want Candy” by Bow Wow Wow (1982), which I just found out is a cover of The Strangeloves (1965). It’s bouncy and fun!

(don’t fear the) reaper by kimyo

(don’t fear the) reaper is a pretty cover of the Blue Öyster Cult song, with a cello instead of an electric guitar, woman-fronted instead, and atmospheric in an ethereal way.

Whispers by Mz_Jai

Whispers is a goth-industrial / techno song – a dance song with lyrics that are not entirely safe for work.

This is Mz_Jai’s only song to date. Check her profile; her website’s a link to her band’s website, with more music there.

The Bottom Falls Out of the Clouds (demoriffic version) by rangefinder 1.4

The Bottom Falls Out of the Clouds (demoriffic version) is an acoustic and folk cover of a song from cortex. It’s sort of pretty, and slow, not downbeat exactly, but enjoying a rainy day.

Everybody (Turn The Beat Up) by clcapps

Everybody (Turn The Beat Up) is an autotuned electropop song.

Silver Machine by billieraymartin

Silver Machine is an electro cover of a Hawkwind song, done by DJ Hell, featuring Billie Ray Martin.

Happy Pi Day!

sing for him by greenish

sing for him has a lovely and warm atmosphere; it’s a hymn, with an organ and a guitar providing backing for her vocals.

Makin’ Steps by InfidelZombie

Makin’ Steps is a angry, speedy, short, and NSFW punk rock song.

Breathing On Another Planet by Saellys

Breathing On Another Planet is a lovely and mellow rock song about a breakup that made someone flee the planet.

The Turducken Song by millipede

The Turducken Song is a ukelele-backed indie pop duet which is a filthy ode to Easter. And it’s NSFW. Really.

Over My Shoulder by saraswati

Over My Shoulder is a pretty and sad song, a woman singing over a piano about a love moving on.

If you’ve noticed a pattern among the recent songs, I know, and it’s not you. My guess is that winter 2009 wasn’t a happy one.

History by saraswati

History has a piano-backed woman plaintively singing about her romantic history repeating itself. I guess it’s piano pop.

It’s saraswati’s first posted track to Mefi Music and to here!

Candyland by platinum

Candyland is a “country rock power ballad,” which doesn’t fit my usual genres, but it’s catchy enough to stick in my head a bit, so here it is.

No Name #2 by oceanview

No Name #2 is sort of a lofi demo of an indie folk song. It has only oceanview’s voice and her guitar playing, and it’s quite lovely.

It’s the only song she’s posted to Mefi Music so far.

You and Me by johanze

You and Me is smooth, acoustic, and girl-fronted pop.

In Piles/On File by 2or3whiskeysodas

In Piles/On File is a fun & bouncy sorta surf rock tune. It’s 2or3whiskeysodas’s only posted track to date.

Solace for King Benny? by freya_lamb

Solace for King Benny? is an uplifting & soothing response to the previous song here, kingbenny’s All My Hearts (Are Belong To You).

Pretty and Disheveled by Doublewhiskeycokenoice

Pretty and Disheveled is a fun punk rock song!

Life Through Veils by Devils Rancher

Life Through Veils is a 80’s/90’s atmospheric and psychedelic rock song. If you like this, you might also like their Shape Shifter.

Three Miles Away… by [son] QUAALUDE

Three Miles Away… is a rock song, with a female singer rocking the soul vibe. The band’s Fugitive Kind, & this is the only song [son] QUAALUDE has posted to Mefi Music, though they posted a (BitTorrent) album release to Projects.

Secret Book (Vocal Mix – Redux) by saulgoodman

Secret Book is a mellow indie tune, with saulgoodman’s wife singing over his acoustic guitars. The instrumental version is also available.

Shelter by Corduroy

Shelter is a pretty song, with just an acoustic guitar & Audrey Johnston’s singing.

Ghost by krisken

Ghost is a nice alternative song, with a music box and pulsing and droning guitars and synths.

This is the only song so far that krisken posted to Mefi.

sippin’ on some severus by kimyo

sippin’ on some severus is sultry & geeky trip-hop.
