The Music Sounds Better With You March 6, 2016 2:29 AM   Subscribe

Back by moderately popular demand, it's the MetaFilterMusic podcast! Check out episode 2 on Soundcloud!

With an embarrassment of riches in recent submissions to choose from, here is the track list presented for your delectation this time:

Winter Light - ageispolis
Brother Casanova - remlapm
Jonathan’s Guitar - corduroy
Elegy - TallTaleHeart
Ashes - ochenk and billiebee
Donald Trump is a Fascist Asshole Pig - not on display
A new kind of beat - CarrotAdventure

With apologies for my slightly shaky voice (recovering from a virus) and thanks to the above clever sods for allowing me to feature their tracks.

*Title Reference YEAH my 90s brethren

Ooh, thanks! I rarely go to Music, so this is a great way to find out what MeFites have been up to. Lovely!

I asked about this thirty hours ago. You took your sweet time 😉

Off to listen now...

I'm excited about this. But is it downloadable and I just can't find the option to download? Streaming isn't an option in my neck of the woods.

aw taz and billiebee you made me proper blush.

paleyellowwithorange, I just received expert advice that I can enable downloads, however I'll have to do that later from home. Will let you know when possible!

Awesome greenish! Thank you, this is a wonderful 30+ min of listening. Great job hosting!

Greenish's MeMu Podcast is the big new thing.

MeMu challenge: Sing the usernames.

Sing the usernames

By coincidence...

By coincidence…

Oh my god, that's amazing. Instant deposit in the "things I sing randomly to myself" bank. I wish I was a pixel art whiz because it's just criminal someone hasn't made a Metal Slug style game with that as the theme.

Or strap a GoPro to a carrot and film a bunch of clips running around and poking things. Viral sensation right there.

This one summer I worked at a drama camp and we did this activity where the kids would all pretend they were rabbits frantically gathering carrots while we played the song.

When greenish reached out to ask if one of my songs could be featured my heart skipped a beat. Me? Are you sure?

The feedback and support of MeFiMusic gave me the courage to actually release a proper EP of my songs in to the wild. It's a wonderful little community over there.

( and its remlap m - m palmer backwards, picked the username 15 years ago, wish I could lop of the m)

Agreed.... the MeFiMusic community slays. Big ups to everyone.

The best thing about this being on SoundCloud is that it went straight into Ep #1 afterwards and I'd forgotten what good stuff there was on that one too. As mentioned above, appreciate the curation/accessibility. Thumbs up to the various artists too.

Thanks everyone, so happy it's helping get this ace music out to y'alls' ears.

I guess three of my favourite things to do are make mixtapes (omg grandma we call them playlists now), listen to new music and ramble aimlessly so this is pretty much my calling.

You've got a knack for it! Great radio voice, stellar banter, and of course an encyclopaedic knowledge of the MeFiMusic world. A great new dimension to add to an already-rich community; lookin' forward to the next 'cast!
posted by CarrotAdventure at 5:16 PM on March 8, 2016

Thanks for including my song in with the rest of these ear-pleasers. I'm honored.

(By the way, I still have a lot of Mefi Music, from the beginning to somewhere like 2013, available as a torrent, if any of you would like to host it for a while. MeMail me!)

PSA - please listen to this through headphones so that you can experience the absolute joy of ageispolis' Winter Light dancing around in your brain.

The whole thing is great, greenish, and thank you for including ochenk and me - I'm genuinely honoured. I left work on Monday after a frustrating day where I was on the verge of murdering various colleagues about 17 times, braced myself for the usual 20 minute road-rage-filled drive home, and pressed play. Within seconds of it starting I was grinning happily and I drove along in Spring evening sunlight feeling that maybe other humans weren't a complete waste of space after all. I actually ended up taking a longer route just so I could listen to it the whole way through - I can't think of higher praise than deliberately delaying my post-work G&T. Thanks to all the MeFi Musos for being awesome.

Wonderful. Thanks so much for including me in this, greenish! Really made my day. And I loved your comments on each song, it demonstrates the potential of MeMu.

Like I said in my reply to your message, I hope you share some more of your music soon!
