Last year, Jyc released some music that he’d composed for the (possibly now defunct) MLP-themed game Friendship is Epic. This is part of the soundtrack, a simple and slightly more minimal piece fit for the title screen of the game.
Tripon’s gone and taken one of Lectro Dub’s oldies from 2012 and turned it into a neat half-time Neuro thing! Okay, that’s not exactly a great description on my part, but it’s pretty unique and difficult to sum up in a short sentence, so go listen to it instead!
There’s still time to vote for May’s Top Pony Songs, but the voting closes on the 6th this time around, so there’s just one day left to vote. Check out Günz’s May playlist for some ideas.
Holy moly, I haven’t heard anything like this in the brony fandom since…well ever! It’s a complete reharmonisation of My Past Is Not Today, adapted to fit acoustic guitars playing plenty of maj7 chords and a softer style of vocals. It’s just really relaxing to listen to, and so unique, you just have to check it out!
So Vylet does jazz now. To be honest, that shouldn’t be too surprising. Not only is he a man of many talents, but this song seems to have a similar mood and timbre to his chillout indie pop stuff, but just on a different set of instruments.
Solo piano pieces are always interesting, and they come in so many different styles too! This one from Lunar Drift has some really interesting chords; the sustained notes lingering between changes create some wonderful dissonance and the key seems to be constantly shifting, an ever-changing illusion, if you will…
The Japanese brony community always seems to largely go under my radar, then every once in a while I see something really sweet and unique like this. I can’t say that Yanamosuda’s re-imagining of Evil Enchantress resembles the original much at all – it’s a complete transformation done very creatively!
And now for something completely different: What happens when you parodise a parody?
I’m not much of a metalhead, and not familiar with Dethklok and Metalocalypse, so going into this blind was…an odd experience, but at least I can say Imit4tor’s voice acting is on point! Oh, and Soul’s instrumentation is great as always too, so check it out if you’re into weird metal jingles.
Three years ago, after running a successful radio show about brony music for several months, Lycan got a bunch of musicians to pitch in some songs to make a compilation album featuring them. Fast forward to now, and this annual album is now in its 4th edition with the release of Beats 4 Everfree. The primary difference this time round is that the album is dedicated to Everfree Northwest, for which Lycan is the musical coordinator this year, and the funds raised from the album sales will go to EFNW’s chosen charity, the Washington Autism Alliance & Advocacy. 14 tracks from a group of consistently solid musicians and producers take this album through all sorts of genres – electronic to orchestral – so there’s something in here for everyone’s tastes!
