GhostXb – Lunar Snowfall | Lo-fi

There is nothing more beautiful and comfy than Heart Warming (a.k.a. Christmas days!), it is the perfect moment for celebrating and sharing those priceless moments we have with our family, and when chilling with our friends as well! and GhostXb knows this, and the track sounds just like that. GhostXb tells us that he took for inspiration a Wonderful fan art showing Princess Luna gazing at a cold night full of stars and the gentle snow falling from the sky. There are not enough words that describe how great the image looks, so that is why our dear friend decided to make a soundtrack for it and to show us those feelings one has when we are at these moments of the year. The track begins with a small tambourine rhythm and a crystalline piano melody that instantly sets you in the mood for this cozy song. We can hear some warm guitars strumming around, accompanied by those sweet keys in conjunct of neat drums that are just phenomenal. The track continues incorporating new melodies and chords (yes, this tune even has that “Christmas-ish chord” that makes everything sound nostalgic!). We can also listen to some strings, bells, and more tambourines. The atmosphere is just great. So, what are you waiting for! Go and have a pleasant time listening to this excellent song!

Kaida – Luna | Melodic Dubstep

Kaida give us this melodically amazing and very emotive song! This time, about one of the princesses on Equestria, Princess Luna. The song is the second one in the Princess Project by Kadia, so stay tuned and check her channel for more of this phenomenal project! (that is going pretty well so far). The track opens with some gentle strings and a dreamy pad. After a while, you can hear a cymbal and some crystalline keys in the distance. Then, everything comes down only to leave space to the buildup, made of an energetic percussion and a soft and sweet lead. It’s preparing us for the drop. And, oh man, it’s a hard-hitting melodic banger! Filled with emotional chords, stunning saw-synths, and a punchy drum kit. This track is just wonderful, like our dear princess Luna. So what are you waiting for! Go and give it a listen, and also show some support to Kaida, She’s a very talented artist!

BlueBrony – The Magic of Hearth’s Warming (feat. Agatan, Flitterkriz & Sakairi Melodious) | Funk / Orchestral / Jazz

Hearth’s Warming songs are always one of my favorite parts of the season and this one hits it out of the park! I’ve known about the making of this song for a while but everything I heard massively understated how awesome this is! Before the song itself starts we get a quick holiday skit, involving all the musicians, I won’t touch on that too much because this is about promoting the song, but let me tell you it’s hilarious and provides a good transition to the song itself.

Optimistic Neighsayer – Puttin’ on the Ritz at the Gala | Piano

If you aren’t following Optimistic Neighsayer (and you should!), then you are missing out on all kinds of creative takes on G4 music! Their most recent hit is an imaginative mashup of the 20s classic Puttin’ on the Ritz and Season 1s At The Gala channeled solely through piano composition. The concept was born out of the popular music composition challenge DustCar under the prompt “Non-pony Pony Cover” and what an ingenious response this track was! Puttin’ on the Ritz at the Gala is a very bouncy, upbeat piano piece that jumps back and forth from tunes in a way that keeps the song exciting and fun.

Koron Korak – Huge Amounts of Pressure | Dark Synth

Koron Korak has been on a hot streak lately! With the release of their Neverending Scars album comes a lot of powerful tracks, heavy themes, and personal growth! Huge Amounts of Pressure is certainly a fitting name and theme for the track as the instrumentation and production create a tense and oppressing sound design. The low-tone synth and heavy bass drum kick you right off the bat while the rest of the percussion keeps the tempo fast. Add in an eerie high synth to carry a lead melody and what you get is the musical equivalent of every thought in your head telling you to get more work done and to be better.

A lot of hard work and emotion went into this track and album, and it definitely is reflected in the final result!

Deavas – Snowfall’s Frost | Metal

One of my favorite releases of the year for sure, Deavas’ new pony Metal beauty goes above and beyond, making use of TalkNet for custom pony vocals, singing lyrics you wouldn’t believe..!! The result is an all-out alternate version of the episode A Hearth’s Warming Tail, with Snowfall Frost actually removing the holiday for real as an evil witch, and Twilight happily singing the tale..! I just LOVE fan works like these so so much!!

Marcato Sound – Inkblight | Orchestral

So you like Orchestral and are like me a sucker for great String sections? Well, do I have the song for you! You don’t? Well, then I still have the song for you! Inkblight is such a wonderfully epic and grandiose piece, and a must-listen! Marcato Sound wrote the song as part of a fanfic’s OST and oh my god, it is wonderful! We’ve got your epic intro with Strings, drums and more, quickly we get something that blew my mind, Marcato Sound uses a Cymbal to create what is best described as an orchestral riser, something I didn’t know was possible but certainly enjoy! We ramp up the epicness for a bit and soon some lovely woodwinds join in to create almost a magical feel to the piece. After a bit we ramp up again into a faster rhythm, again perfectly accented by the woodwinds and as we progress further through the piece, we ramp up even more with some horns, lending this feel of quick action. Before we get to the ending bit, we again get a calmer section, this time the melody is backed what I can only assume is a cembalo which is something we don’t get all too often and brings an amazing feel to the whole song before we end out on another epic fast paced section and a finishing bit of woodwinds.
