Really Bad Moon Rising by Jenkiins

Really Bad Moon Rising is a hilariously lofi take on the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic rock song. This version has only an accordion and ukelele as instrumentation. And by “lofi,” I mean, it was done in one take from a laptop’s built-in mic.

Dead Man’s Will by Corduroy

Trigger warning: Mortality.

Dead Man’s Will is a slow, pretty, and sad folk song, a cover of a Iron and Wine / Calexico tune, which has sorta depressing lyrics.

Circles by chococat

Circles sounds like a 90’s alt-rock tune, with lofi fuzzy guitars and a singer who does sound a bit like TMBG, as peterkins pointed out.

Kids by cortex

Kids is a lofi cover of a song by MGMT. It’s raucous and fun.

shallow song/airport fiction by multivalent

shallow song/airport fiction is really two songs – first folk, then folk rock, both with ukeleles and a guitar. I really like airport fiction, and I’m not sure if it’s because, or despite, the fact that it’s really lofi.

It’s multivalent’s first posted song!

Oh Balloon Boy by cortex

Oh Balloon Boy is a raucous lofi pop rock song. The lyrics are from mikepop (first song here!), and the rest from cortex. The song’s based on the balloon boy hoax of October 2009. I feel like I should have some useful tag for music drawn from real-life events. News? Non-fiction, perhaps? “Reality” sounds ridiculous here.

Edit: If you’re wondering where he went, Falcon “Balloon Boy” Heene surfaced earlier this year in a very young metal band.

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.

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.

68 percent by millipede

68 percent is a lofi indie pop song, with lyrics about ending a relationship over poppy music.

Purepechazz by micayetoca

Purepechazz is a mellow jazz piece, revolving around an acoustic guitar, mostly wordless and then not in English.

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.

Like a Rolling Stone by BrnP84

Like a Rolling Stone is a very short cover of the Bob Dylan tune, with a fuzzy lofi guitar.

Whispers by dobie

Whispers is a charming lofi folk song, about the aftermath of a nearby car accident, with onlookers and someone who gravitated toward the ready audience. It’s part of an unofficial Music challenge, recorded on a laptop’s built-in microphones.

Subject of the Kill (demo) by de novo dahl

This is the demo version of Subject of the Kill, a rough, lo-fi, and garage rock song. The final pop-rock version was also posted – I liked it less. These two versions are the only songs posted by de novo dahl to date. I should label those – suggestions for a tag, anyone?

All the Same by erikgrande

All the Same is lofi alt-rock, with fuzzy guitars and earnest singing.

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.

King Of The Road by lothar

I love this song! King Of The Road is another punk, NSFW version of the frequently covered Roger Miller country song. This was posted by lothar as a reaction to hearing uncleozzy’s version, also featured here. In comparison, this one has more fun guitarwork and less pinched vocals.

King of the Road by uncleozzy

Happy Halloween! King of the Road is a lofi punk version of the frequently covered Roger Miller country song.

Tryptophantastic by sleepy pete

Tryptophantastic (2007 edit) is a lo-fi take on a Thanksgiving family gathering. It’s distorted – loud, warm, & fuzzy.

The Greatest Days by dhammond

The Greatest Days is optimistic, lofi garage rock.
