Pinkamena Party – PONYDOME VII: INJECTED WITH PONY | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre

Ah, the 7th Pinkamena Party Crew project. This time coming in the brand of Ponydome VII: Injected with Pony. Ponydome comes with 50 individual tracks and includes the PPC’s BronyCon 2019 performances. Here are some quotes from my favorite moments of the aforementioned performances:

“Pinkie Pie! Pinkie Pieee!!! PINKIE PIE! PINKIEeeEE PiEE!!!” “Ponyponyponyponyponyponyponyponypony.” “The year was 20 A.D., B.C., simultaneously. For the first time and the last time and the first time only, pingpingpingpingpingpingping.”

The fourth live jam entitled Applejack! also contains a spontaneous freestyle section from community veteran MicTheMicrophone. The album is fitted with a consistent intro, all the way from the think breaks and the atmospheric chords of En Vogue pts I and II to the piano funk of Lickety’s Split. After that, bring yourself to an amen-populated Hooverville with Enuna’s tracks Hooves for the Hoofed and Filly Meal Friends. For only the hardest floors, break necks with the eery Promenade and the ever-inventive diatonic gabber kicks of Pink Elephants at the Rave. Back to back acid tracks Oh Shit! It’s Paw Patrol and cmap.exe provide some very unique atmospheres to the album. For more unique emotions, follow the [non-]fiction of One Night in Cherry Jubilee. There are so many inventive bangers on this compilation that I wish I could cover them all in only this small paragraph. Instead, I strongly recommend listening on your own. If you like EBM, Hardcore, and supporting charity then you won’t be disappointed.

Vylet Pony – Healing | Dream Pop

I really need to listen to Vylet’s album Love Letters: Colourless. When you think of Rainbow Dash, and the vast amount of brony music made about her, there is a lot of energetic, fast pace, songs that fits her character. Healing is a really nice change of flavor to the more stereotypical tracks.
Vylet Pony has made something soft and uplifting. The melodies are like a powerful wave of inspiration – very reminiscent of Rainbow Dash! The lyrics evoke emotions of her struggles. Vylet’s voice is so good over the harmonies, they make you feel like you’re in a dream watching the story take place. The message of Healing is powerful and wise. You need time to heal, time away from everything to put the pieces back together. Do yourself a favor and check out this song + Vylet’s album!

John Doe – Sweet Home | Soundtrack

New Pony Town music! Treat yourself in this relaxing collage of plucked strings, flute, and piano. The plucked strings set a celestial tone, the reverberant brass sets a grand query, and the flute and percussion answer it. The piano and strings then ride along until a new query comes about. Combined with the familiarity of Pony Town, this music won’t let you down in any armchair scenario.

Frozen Night – Crescentiform (feat. Velvet R. Wings) | Orchestral / Symphonic Metal

 

Epic battle theme time? I think it’s epic battle theme time. 

Just imagine, you’re just a Kirin, walking a lonesome path along the outer boundaries of the forest surrounding your village in the dwindling twilight. Suddenly, you are attacked by some strange creatures as they come at you from the forest, blasting you with magic bursts. You leap to evade their attacks and fires back, blinding them with your own magic. The battle won’t end until either you fall in battle, or when you’ve defeated them all in defense of your village. 

This track gives me a very “Child of Light”-ish vibe, in a good way, of course. The soft but intense orchestral instruments blends with the strong electric guitar riffs to become one amazing treat for the listener with an adventurous ear. Kudos for Frozen Night and Velvet R. Wings for delivering this amazing track!

Checkerëd – Appleshake (General Mumble Remix) | Psybounce

Checkerëd’s first release in a year, and it’s a remix of an older song from fandom veteran General Mumble! While it puts a new spin on the old classic, it keeps some elements of the original track, such as samples from the show and… you can probably guess the other thing. Anyway, for fans new and old, this is a bouncy, enjoyable tune that’ll no doubt shake up the club!
