Synthwave stuff is definitely an aesthetic that’s been pretty big on the internet for a while now, so it’s cool to see some HOME-style stuff pop up from a pony musician! Big, nostalgic chords, awesome use of a vocal sample hook, glittering arpeggios and some super funky basslines help to make this an insanely catchy tune from Lovestruck. Not to mention the synth solos in the second half!
Amplifyre was a song made a long time ago by Omnipony featuring a couple of vocalists, but here Strach’s bottlegged the instrumental of it into some awesome glitch hop. A solid build up quickly launches into some high energy wubs, arranged really nice with some terrific sound design some some nice melodic sections in between too.
Elias Frost has brought FlutterGoth to life as a musical artist, expertly putting many of a dialogue from her episode to some excellent metal music that suits it perfectly. Emo Flutter metal is definitely quite the aesthetic, especially with some additional vocaloid-style backing vocals too.
Vylet certainly knows how to create some grogeous and cosy atmospheres, which is definitely the case here in this piece about Starlight and Trixie. With a mixture of his own and Namii’s vocals melding together beautifully, the combination of acoustic and electronic instrumental elements also work to create a really enjoyable piece.
Cute, soft tunes are the order of the day from strigidae most of the time, but this time the production levels feel higher than normal, and the energy is a step up too, with some awesome use of fun tropical-feeling sound design and vocal chanting to go with the main vocals. Check it out for some great vibes about Starlight and Trixie!
I’m not really sure what this song is about beyond RPGs and dice rolls, but there’s a fun electronic and rock hybrid instrumental and plenty of crazy Russian vocals. Plus it comes with a neat typographic video full of ponies, which is pretty cool too.
It’s been a while since I’ve heard anything from SlightlyAmiss, but it definitely sounds like he’s improved! Coming together with a nice lyric video is a great pop rock tune about Rainbow Dash, the highlight is definitely the catchy and thoroughly enjoyable chorus that has some terrific vocal melodies ably supported by a neat guitar solo.
Faulty continues to nail that Archie-style house formula, with this awesome track based on a character from P-Berry’s fanfic ‘Anywhere But Here’. Some nicely voiced lines from CadetRedShirt build into an upbeat and energetic yet slightly sad drop, which is really super catchy, and gets better second time around with a killer lead synth.
Inspired by the pirates from the MLP Movie, we’ve got an awesome sea shanty-style rock tune from Crusader! that has some great energy to it. The vocals fit in well with the vibe of the instrumental, and it’s a suitable soundtrack to the characters.
Arturo makes some pretty killer glitch-influenced music, and this track has a whole heap of that, as it delves into intricate and deep soundscapes to confront some nightmares. It’s got some pretty awesome sound design throughout, with just enough melodic content to help drive the craziness.
