This song manages to be epic in both senses of the word. It’s guitar and drums and other rock elements, as well as it’s orchestral format, mixing together, making for a high energy track about the battle between Nightmare Moon and Celestia! Definitely a great track for people who like orchestral rock music!
Sometimes you gotta let it rain. Track 2 from Silva Hound’s latest album Equestrian Stories: The Prelude (not to mention his first MLP album since 2011!), NIRIK is a bouncy bass house piece that’s built around an edited sample of A Kirin Tale. From the first second to the end, the bass doesn’t let up, making for an intense electronic listening experience. Also, peep the Autumn Blaze pinup!
Out of all the recently-returning musicians in the fandom, this one might be the most special. Captive Unicorns is actually SoGreatandPowerful! His first release since September 2013 (!!!), Scrimshawl is an amazing comeback track that showcases his unique style. His soft voice and harmonies fit perfectly with the music, which, while minimal, absolutely shine bright. It’s clear that after all this time, the artist formerly known as SoGreatandPowerful hasn’t lost his touch. Welcome back, Captive! Safe to say we can expect great things from you.
In yet another case of a musician returning to the fandom after a few moments of silence, New Reverian’s back with his first new track in just about a year, as well as his first track under the New Reverian pseudonym since late 2018. Journies is an optimistic ambient pop piece with lovely atmospheric synths along with pony vocal chops soaked in reverb. The beautiful mood never lets up throughout the remainder of the track, and makes for a cozy listening experience!
Always celebrating the merriments of MLP and the community in so many ways, Brilliant Venture provides a most wonderful tribute once again, and this one has extra dank vocal samples in addition to pony vocal samples! The chiptune-y melodies are giving those very nostalgic vibes once again, and this was definitely another amazing surprise from the musician!
Get your umbrellas out, because the storm is coming. Track 68 from Ponies at Dawn: Eternal sees UndreamedPanic enter synthwave territory with Metajoker by his side. The atmosphere is bleak with plenty of reverb on the latter’s voice as the 80s-inspired synths and bass paint a picture of the rain falling on a lonely town. As long as you’re inside and cozy with this song, the storm won’t get you.
Hey, listen! sleepy toaster’s contribution to Equinity 02: Catalyst is All Over Equestria, a unique electronic piece with various influences as well as the 8th track. Starting off slow with a soft staccato synth stab section before adding a quick buzzing synth that sounds like it came straight from the 2000s. What follows is a brilliant modern-sounding slow house jam with beautiful melodies and even a sample of Navi from Legend of Zelda. Such a wild combination of styles, but it all comes together nicely!
From an upcoming EP, this first part of a story is bringing an atmospheric intro that relies on vocal samples for story-telling and it was definitely an awesome initiative! Apparently the EP is made for a friend, and that makes the music extra comfy!
Songs from the pony band Starlight (Proctra & PegasYs) shall never be forgotten, and it’s good to see that in this day and age remixes are still being made! The Starlight Glimmer-themed track from the band gets a new spin by CutTheRedWire here with comfy beats, and the original vocals by PegasYs can be appreciated in all their glory once more!
Delightfully experimental as always, Nyancat380’s music never ceases to impress, and this new Pinkie-themed abrasive experiment for noise.horse’s Christmas compilation album is venturing the roads less traveled along Pinkie who’s sampled all throughout the track!
