Artificial Sky by chaff

Artificial Sky is an alt-rock song. I like the keyboard and the supporting horns.

This is chaff’s only posted song.

I Talk To Myself by Jon-A-Thon

I Talk To Myself is a bouncy pop song, a repurposed cell phone commercial soundtrack. So, lots of phone puns and references and audio filters. I like the “la la” bits.

Where Is My Mind by cortex

Where Is My Mind is a cool little garage rock cover of the Pixies tune, with a theremin wailing away and rockstar guitars.

A Number Another Summer by The World Famous

A Number Another Summer has guitars with lots of reverb, and layers of synths, both throbbing and gently washing. The description calls out The Cure, Disintegration-era, but it stands well by itself.

I Think You’re Alright (demo) by frenetic

I Think You’re Alright (demo) is a pretty great rock song. (Not a lovesong.) I like the groove of the bass guitar especially, and the touches of synth throughout.

Aether by googly

Aether is a lovely quiet shoegazer tune, with atmospheric guitars, and a somewhat hypnotic bassline.

The Life of Perfect Creatures by chimaera

The Life of Perfect Creatures is a rock song, with a wall of guitars, about Laika, the dog cosmonaut.

Feel Free! Plastic Surgery! (demo) by frenetic

Feel Free! Plastic Surgery! (demo) is an upbeat and happy song, with slightly less optimistic lyrics – cutting, even – about plastic surgery. I like this as it is, with weird instruments in the background, like the beatboxing, other mouth noises, and the swelling horns.

The final version – on Guess Who’s a Mess and on Soundcloud – loses some of the goofy instrumentation, and some of the charm, though your mileage may vary.

Sabotage by man vs sun

Sabotage is sorta a college rock cover of the Beastie Boys song, introducing pheatherwait on bass flute.

Oops, I didn’t publish my draft of this. Let’s say this is the song for tomorrow, too.

Downtown by goodnewsfortheinsane

Downtown is a slow drudge rock version of the 1964 song, written by Tony Hatch, performed by Petula Clark, and covered many, many times. It’s not cheerful, and it’s melancholic and heavy, but not too heavy.

Open by The World Famous

Open is a driving rock song, sort of a dance song with a guitar, in an unusual five-on-the-floor beat instead of the usual four-on-the-floor.

Halleluyeah! by The World Famous

Halleluyeah! is a glistening 80’s piece of hair metal butt rock. It’s ridiculous and awesome.

Yeah, let’s do a Hallelujah week.

I Said It All by chococat

I Said It All is a lovely bit of lofi garage rock, done for a Music Challenge – it uses only two chords.

There Is No by The World Famous

There Is No is a slow and spooky song that uses the EBow for atmosphere.

Merry Christmas!

I Command You to Be My Woman by frenetic

I Command You to Be My Woman is a big dumb rock song. Fun and hilarious!

Kane Deuce by grubi

Kane Deuce is a great blaxploitation song, all fuzzy guitars and wah-wahs and NSFW snippets of trash-talking.

O Superman by cortex

O Superman is a non-electronic and mostly acoustic cover of the experimental Laurie Anderson song. This is fairly unusual and experimental in its own right.

the siren of titan by kimyo

the siren of titan is an instrumental electronica piece, with atmospheric electric guitars sailing around. It’s spacy and upbeat.

Beestung by The World Famous

Beestung is a really lovely indie rock song, with fun falsettos.

I Don’t Want to be Here by Devils Rancher

I Don’t Want to be Here is a cover of a britpop song by XTC’s Andy Partridge. It’s poppy rock, with some atmospheric guitars, catchy and layered.

Underwater Silent Movie by saulgoodman

Underwater Silent Movie is another nice atmospheric song from previous guests saulgoodman & his band Tangemeenie – they’ve shown up before. It’s got a nice build to it, & it’s nicely evocative for an instrumental song.

Or The Tide by tdismukes

Or The Tide is a somewhat folkish number from tdismukes’ band, Low-Tech Riff Raff.

It’s catchy, moderately paced, and I like the melodies and all the instruments.

More Songs About Oven Mitts by notheydo

More Songs About Oven Mitts is a laid-back lofi song about a robot made for killing, sadly turned into a chef.

Secret Agent Man by uncleozzy

Secret Agent Man is a sorta surf punk cover of the Johnny Rivers classic.

Jettison by dirtdirt

Jettison is an indie tune. It’s one of two tracks posted by dirtdirt to Mefi, as the band the Goddamn Handclaps.

Major Bounce by fingers_of_fire

Major Bounce is a cheerful instrumental song with a couple of layers of intricate guitar work.

While the Gittin’ is Good by mccreath

While the Gittin’ is Good is surf rock, with the guitar thrown through a punkish distortion pedal.

Threnody by milquetoast

Threnody is a punchy, short – three minutes long – rock song.

Save the Fattest Girl for Me by markulus

Save the Fattest Girl for Me is a catchy & funny pop/rock ode to women who aren’t skinny.

Trinity by sluglicker

Trinity has evocative guitarwork, a metronomic flute, & heartbeat-like drums.

Locutus by spock

Locutus is spacy, rockish techno. I like how the username & the song title go together.

Hunting for Foxes by Wolfdog

This isn’t in the usual genres covered here – Hunting for Foxes is a nice bit of metal. The video I picture for it involves highway driving and guitar playing, in the desert. It would rock.

Hats, Caps and Notions by joe lisboa

Hats, Caps and Notions is just this indie powerpop song, you know?

Dr. Who Goes To (Final Fantasy) Town by cortex

Dr. Who Goes To (Final Fantasy) Town is a combination of the themes of Dr. Who & Final Fantasy, as played by Pink Floyd.
