Kakofonous A. Dischord & flankƨ​y – flank​ƨ​y / kakofonous a. dischord | Experimental Album

Two friends have decided to blow the dust off their collabs and bring them out to the light for us to enjoy! Kako, aka an experimental/noise musician, founder of the music label noise.horse and game designer and developer was collabing in the last year or two with secretive street artist flankƨ​y, flankƨ​y’s music is known throughout in Pinkamena Party albums and previously featured on noise.horse too. Both musicians have chosen the streets as their office work to mark their underground musical art with narcotic frequencies and fresh physic sounds. This illegal album is only available on bandcamp and pony.fm.

flankƨ​y – self titled

flankƨy’s backpack is packed of graffiti cans, the murals and the ambience need visual and musical communication. The drums encompasses the alleyways and the bass and deep tone synths vibrates with the muse of the artist as we witness their street art. A bopping intro for an invite only event.

flankƨ​y – take me down

This is not the Friendship Games, this is an underground jam that’ll bring down your walls as your speakers pump out the grinding bass! The variety of vocal chopping is so dope it’ll make you breakdance with the crew.

flankƨ​y vs kakofonous a. dischord – a soft bed (shared)

Alike the coziness of a bed, this intimate collab song narrates the experience of ponies sharing the bed. Dreamy synths fondle romantically with calmative drums as the bedroom’s ambience is alive with the deep affection of the ponies. Who do you ship and visualize for this endearing scenario?

kakofonous a. dischord – route 3

Kako’s aesthetic style is not described through their productions, but it is felt. A chill pad of wonderment strolls peacefully with outlandish but amorous drums taking the wheel while a coloring melody joins the euphonic ride. You’ll unconsciously be in tune with the route as this jam of aurora plays making the driving a feel in autopilot.

This otherworldly collaborative album is the good stuff that youngsters are vibing to, spread word around to support both musicians if you want another dose. I know and said nothing of this album. *writer disappears in the dark alley*

Biscuit – This Is Where The Good Bit Starts | Metal Album

We’re dragged in hollow ambience, dispiritedness rings in the air as monstrous guitar riffs creeps upon us accompanied by slow drums quaking the realm. We just stumbled inside the wilderness of Biscuit’s first metal album and there is no exit till the end as we will be tangled by the pressure of radiating demonic screams, restless and torching deep guitar tones, breakdowns of dynamite blasts and double time meteorite drumming throughout this electrifying album.

This Is Where The Good Bit Starts.

Jeff Burgess – Before These Mighty Skies | Alternative Cover Album

Once upon a time in the magical time of 2013, Le Soldat Pony released “Before These Mighty Skies” as an innovative, indie/alternative sound that was quite new and distinctive to the fandom. Le Soldat may not be a common name nowadays, but another longtime fandom musician certainly hasn’t forgotten. Jeff Burgess revived the ideas of the songs from the original album and transformed them into his own form of covers, even continuing to add bonus alternatives to the bandcamp album following the initial release!

Burgess’ sound mixes elements of indie, alternative, ambient, progressive, and folk to capture a full, distinctive sound that manages to come across as both somber and nostalgic – almost as if the songs themselves are thinking of Le Soldat and wondering where they are now.

Eastquestria Records – Vol. 1: Prelude | Compilation Album

Disc A
Disc B

It’s not every day you find a double compilation album in your inbox (thanks Drixale), so this was a very pleasant surprise. Eastquestria is a new pony music collective from China, who last month launched their first compilation album, Prelude. The album spans two “discs”, each one featuring over an hour of music. There’s mostly a mix of electronic and orchestral/soundtrack – some of the latter even includes the sound of some traditional East Asian instruments. If you’re looking for some artists you don’t normally see anywhere else, this double album is a great place to begin!

Koa – Rainbow Disaster Pop | Album | Hyperpop

Content warning: This album features adult language and other explicit content.

Hyperpop has been on the rise in the fandom for the past few years, and now Koa contributes a full album worth of crazy, silly, super-boppin’ hits! Every track on Rainbow Disaster Pop is conceptualized through a different episode from Dawn Somewhere’s series Rainbow Dash Presents, a comical video set which retold notable MLP fanfiction through parody. The entire album exudes punk energy with lots of fun vocal effects, subtle audio nods to Dawn Somewhere, chaotic randomness, hilarity, and so much more!
