As part of a new EP of classic fandom song covers, we have our own Francis Vace’s rendition of Pinkie’s Brew. Expect the usual ska-infused punk sound we’ve come to know and love from him!
Here’s another deliciously upbeat and energetic track from fractilx. The tune hurtles forward on a boldly accelerated rhythm through a sea of chiming bells and piano and is really driven home by a beautifully crafted melody. Awesome work all around.
As part of our partnership with Ponyville FM, I (Intersekt) am hosting the Horse Music Hotspot, a showcase of the best of the best music featured here on HMH from the whole month! The show is at 10:00 PM on the 28th of February (EST) and runs for a whole hour until 11:00 PM, so come on over to Ponyville FM and we’ll have a jolly old time!
Radiarc, one of the kings of brony orchestral music, is back again with a piece about Diamond Tiara, pre-redemption I suppose. Check it out above for a dark-ish song, driven by haunting strings…
[Language warning for those with ears as sensitive as Fluttershy] Daaayuumm, I love this! Reverbrony and friends bring us a follow-up to his track Wrath with an the perspective reversed. Get Pinkie br00talising Gilda above!
Rusty Thorsell brings us an interesting and somewhat ominous vocal tune about, in his own words ‘extremism and fanatacism’. The chorus of this track is pretty catchy, and easy to bob along to, regardless of the sombre tone of the song. Overall, it’s pretty well together, and something different to listen to.
Sights Unseen has been branching out into music about things other than multi-coloured equines (5 Nights at Freddy’s and The Walking Dead, for example), but here he returns to pony with a thought-provoking track about everybody’s favourite purple protagonist, Twilight Sparkle.
Evdog seems to have been remastering all of his songs recently, so go get a new version of this track featuring vocals from Feather. Expect sorrow, repentance, and Australian accents.
2 legends of the old fandom music days, AcousticBrony and MandoPony both started making waves in 2011. They were already two of the best-known fandom musicians…and then they collaborated to make this masterpiece. Well, okay, this is a re-recorded version which sounds much better, but the original was uploaded in December 2011 on both AcousticBrony (now making music under the alias Re:Make) and MandoPony‘s respective channels.
Despite its age, this song’s theme still holds strong today. The lyrics are sung from Scootaloo’s perspective and speak of her determination and inspiration from Rainbow Dash to be the best she can be. Whether she flies higher literally or metaphorically, Scootaloo still regards Dashie as a role model, and I hope we get to see more of that relationship develop in season 6. Until then, I’m gonna get nostalgic and listen to this song on repeat, enjoy.
Perhaps it’s not strictly pony related, but we thought some of you might like this. If you like house and wubs, then go check out NeoN’s new track, it’s a “banger” as Xavi would probably say…
