Duet by Cantdosleepy

Duet is a happy poppy electronic song, not unlike something The Postal Service would do.

Nightlights by dunkadunc

Nightlights is a sorta synth poppy song. It reminds me of the soundtrack to Drive, with colder synths.

Edit: This is weird: this song isn’t showing up in iTunes for me. I’ll try to dig into the problem later!

Edit: It’s working now.

Republic by Cantdosleepy

Republic is a charming, weightless, and wordless electronic piece.

This is Cantdosleepy’s first posted song, and also song #750 on the podcast!

bitquake 2 by loquacious

bitquake 2 is a lofi electronic song, with rumbly bass and glitch sounds and a nice instrumental flow. Ooh, and metronomic pacing, which I’m pretty fond of.

You Can’t Ignore My Techno by COBRA!

You Can’t Ignore My Techno is a chill electronic song, with accents of noisy guitar and that sort of steel-guitar-in-the-desert feel. It’s laid-back, happily noodling along.

Honesty by azarbayejani

Honesty is a minimalistic electronic track – semi-ambient, as it has rhythms, but it’s instrumental and relaxing. It’s good background music.

In Your Face (demo) by frenetic

In Your Face (demo) is a fun little electronic rock song. It’s a nice head-bobbing song, with outbreaks of guitars.

Chased by MaiaMadness

Chased is a jangly electronic pop song.

never coming back by dunkadunc

never coming back is a rocking electronic song. It would work well as a soundtrack to a racing game.

Movie Credits instrumental by Greynaab

Movie Credits instrumental is atmospheric slow spacy spooky instrumental piece. With strings. Sibilance.

Craftwork by cloeburner

Craftwork is “Kraftwerk-esque dubstep.” It’s got the tinny overdriven bass of dub, the wobbly bass of dubstep, and the metronomic and lovely parts of Kraftwerk.

arrested development by raisindebt

arrested development is an electronic rock song, the story of a man only able to communicate via the means of the titles of pop culture artifacts.

Space Gait by cloeburner

Space Gait is a spacy and minimal electronic tune, layered with different rhythms, drifting into and out of sync.

Goodbye Horses by frenetic

Goodbye Horses is an electronic rock cover of the Q Lazzarus song, popularized by “Silence of the Lambs.”

Happy 4th of July!

Love of Luxury (Lake Heartbeat’s Lake Luxury Remix) by setanor

Love of Luxury (Lake Heartbeat’s Lake Luxury Remix) is a sexy dance song, with beautiful layers and textures. I love its atmosphere.

Maytown by Espoo2

Maytown is some awesome electronic rock with interesting layers and textures.

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.

Strawman by hellojed

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

Happy birthday cortex!

Little Donut Party by uncleozzy

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

Oh Ma Gad Yall by tehloki

Oh Ma Gad Yall is a techno song with sorta catchy lyrics, mostly contained in the title.

And that’s tehloki’s last song for now!

Distance of the Moon (Albedo Mix) by speicus

Distance of the Moon (Albedo Mix) is a head-bobbing synthpop song, with a great groove.

They Glow by god particle

They Glow is a roaring if harshly electronic techno song.

Thunder by god particle

Thunder is an awesome loud & glitchy techno track. It’s a bit harsh and industrial, but it’s got a good beat.

Straphanger (H201E) by loquacious

Straphanger (H201E) is a techno track, featuring samples from San Francisco mass transit. Muni sounds good!

Stillekes by elektrotechnicus

Stillekes is an experimental intrumental track, very minimalistic and loopy – a bit hypnotic, gradually shifting.

Fantastische Farben by hellphish

Fantastische Farben is a chiptune song, with instruments from an emulated Commodore 64. It starts simple, but gets rolling a minute in. I like the repeated builds.

So far, this is the only song hellphish has posted.

Gas Giant by Jimbob

Gas Giant is some chilled-out beats, with droning, slow-moving machines off in the distance.

Thanks for the Add (demo) by frenetic

Thanks for the Add is a fun and catchy dance track, with the bass cranked, distorted and farty-sounding. This song’s around four years old, from when Myspace was the dominant social network, with around twice as many monthly users as that upstart Facebook.

musk by 31d1

musk is a pulsing, rather chill, jazzy song. Its creator calls it progressive grime, which might be plausible, but wow, I detest micro-genres.

Templar by tehloki

Templar is a trancy techno bumping song.

Illegal But Legitimate by ageispolis

Illegal But Legitimate is quick-moving, noodly drum and bass.

Ipsum Tiled by tehloki

Ipsum Tiled is an happily, aggressively upbeat trance song.

ripples by advil

ripples has synths that remind me of a Vangelis soundtrack. It starts with calm synths, builds a nice momentum, then mellows out again.

That wraps up the coverage from the first Music Challenge.

Fincha cha cha Remixed by PuGZ

Fincha cha cha Remixed is a dancy little song, based around a dorky sample.

Flying Moby Attack by chillmost

Flying Moby Attack is droning space rock.

While the name suggests a bald musician gliding above the ground in an attack position, or an enemy from Zelda II, it’s meant to suggest a cross between the lo-fi space rock of Flying Saucer Attack and the electronica of Moby.
