Want to submit a song or album to HMH? Now there’s a new and easier way to do so! Traditionally, we’ve been reliant on our staff members scouting for songs to post about. However, it’s easy for us to miss something in our YouTube subscriptions and we might not spot new artists immediately. So we made a submissions form for anyone to submit their music to HMH!
Liquid DnB is always so relaxing and satisfying to listen to! MCO945 makes their YouTube debut here with a song from last year’s A State of Sugar album. The soundscape is so airy and atmospheric, it captures the essence of the title perfectly! Check it out for something that’ll make you want to both dance and chill at the same time.
Trying something very different to their debut release, Nugget brings us this gentle piano-led orchestral piece. It’s very harmonically interesting and seems to make use of a couple of different modes and scales! Its bittersweet sound and backstory is a reflection of its inspiration, as it serves as a lovely tribute to Nugget’s late great-grandmother.
Today I’m happy to bring you this lovely cover by Algo at All, breathing new life into an amazing song with his lovely voice and a completely new new instrumental, especially said vocals and the guitar make for a wonderfully captivating song that makes you nod your head along.
Just because Gen 5 has now officially kicked off doesn’t mean the classic show tunes won’t get any more love! Today I bring you a fun remix by EveryDayDashie, a track full of fun synths, booming drums and drops that’ll stay in your ear for quite some time, EveryDayDashie also makes good use of muffled vocal to spice up the track a bit, making for a wonderful bit of variety.
It’s not often that you see Generation 3 fan content nowadays, but today I’m delighted to bring you this wonderful piece by Ethan Toavs, a wonderful bit of orchestral that gets you in an adventurous mood with it’s booming, deep horns and melodic strings, a definite must listen even if you have never seen G3!
As part of Everfree Park Ranger’s (formerly Balloon Party) newest album “Everfree Park: After Hours” Drixale brings us this wonderful and calm piece. A combination of soft synths, some vocal chops and even lyrics from Drixale himself makes this a calm and catchy piece that I’ll have on repeat for a while.
This sweet Liquid Drum & Bass track sets the stage right away with a soft beat, shiny piano, flowing pads, deep sub bass, everything just sounds so polished and shiny. You’ll absolutely love it. Yet it’s not super intense. Just exactly what you need to take a moment, sit back, relax… And imagine something like a beautiful field of flowers, or a flowing river. I could go on and on, but you should listen and experience this track for yourself.
Once upon a time in the magical time of 2013, Le Soldat Pony released “Before These Mighty Skies” as an innovative, indie/alternative sound that was quite new and distinctive to the fandom. Le Soldat may not be a common name nowadays, but another longtime fandom musician certainly hasn’t forgotten. Jeff Burgess revived the ideas of the songs from the original album and transformed them into his own form of covers, even continuing to add bonus alternatives to the bandcamp album following the initial release!
Burgess’ sound mixes elements of indie, alternative, ambient, progressive, and folk to capture a full, distinctive sound that manages to come across as both somber and nostalgic – almost as if the songs themselves are thinking of Le Soldat and wondering where they are now.
A Train Between Canterlot and the Great Divide features a gorgeous acoustic guitar quickly picking single notes of chords and driving the song forward. Jeff sings of a pony who – like the guitar – aims to move forward, leaving the past behind and hopping off a train to something new.
A Wide Eyed Cabin in the Woods has a very old-timey, homely vibe through a strumming banjo and layered, group vocal deliverance – all performed by Burgess. It is eerie and comforting in a way only Jeff could make so satisfying.
A gorgeous blend of genres, styles, originality and cover tribute, “Before These Mighty Skies” is a brilliant revival of what once was, in a way that now is.
Last month’s top 10 is out! Without giving too much away, I’m surprised that we have a such a strong representation of rock subgenres! The rolling releases from P@D: Zenith are still ongoing, but will they take the top spot? You’d better watch the video to find out!
