Daniel Ingram – You’ll Play Your Part (Elias Frost Swedish Cover) | Folk Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 13 March 2017.

You’ll Play Your Part is one of my favourite songs from the show, and Elias Frost has done it up in a pretty awesome way! With Swedish vocals, and a terrific build throughout the piece, this is certainly an awesome rendition. Starting out pretty soft and folk-sounding, it steadily gets more metal through the piece, as Elias’ voice helps to build the tension too. The breakdown at 2:35 when it all comes together is especially gratifying.

[SoK] Indie Notes – Tales of a Bad Seed | Acoustic

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 12 March 2017.

Indie Notes returns with another track from his recent mini album Under Equestria’s Skies. Also available of Bronies For Good’s recent charity album, this piece is pretty stripped back instrumentally, with the main element being acoustic guitar. The vocals drive the majority of the piece, with some great lyrics sung in a really nice soft voice. Give it a listen below if you want some nice easy listening!

SlightlyAmiss – Beyond Time and Space | Acoustic

It’s never too late to make a heartfelt tribute to a character you love, and we are delighted to get a wonderful Acoustic piece from SlightlyAmiss dedicated to Derpy and her fan-cherished relationship with Doctor Whooves. Beautiful and genuine acoustic guitars and even piano lull the sweet couple to a tender cuddling moment as the lovely vocals sing to a strong and lasting bond, Beyond Time and Space. I just love to see this kind of fan songs the most!

Tina & Damien – Mon Éclat ~ My Cadence (Covering Matthew Mosier) | Acoustic Pop

We don’t often get a quality French Cover of a brony song that’s for sure, so this right here is an awesome surprise! Damien, who was once known as the very promising pony musician Selenys, is back and teamed up with Tina to bring us an amazing French Cover of My Cadence from Matthew Mosier and originally having Megaphoric and ismBoF providing the duet. This new duet not only shines with beautiful vocal work from both singers, but it also features brand new lyrics to fit with the love song in French, and not just a literal translation of the original lyrics! It’s definitely adding a much enjoyable creative aspect to the cover for me. Here’s hoping for more releases from them!

In case some of you didn’t know, we’re very much behind on posting current music, so we thought one way to help us catch up would be to compile all the Hearts and Hooves music into one post for you to enjoy! Catch it all after the break…

Elias Frost – Celestia’s Ballad (covering Daniel Ingram) | Folk/Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 14 February 2017.

Elias Frost is back with another show cover, this time of Celestia’s Ballad. For the most part it’s a pretty chilled out and focuses on some soft instrumentation and Elias’ vocals, but it gets a bit metal towards the end where there’s an instrumental solo. The vocals here suit his voice really well, as whilst the original came across relatively motherly in tone, this certainly has a similarly fatherly feel to it.

Indie Notes – Faithful & Strong | Acoustic

Here’s a song with a very emotional meaning and story, perfectly conveyed by the instrumental and the vocals, that are also much emotional. It is emphasizing on the character depth of Bon Bon, as she had to hide her true identity and secret activity from her best friend, Lyra. Reminiscing of similar situations in movies like Nikita, perhaps the emotions expressed through the song could also resonate with you on some other level. We may not be inside a spy movie, but certainly there are other situations when you have an activity that you wish you could share with a beloved one. A much welcomed song full of depth from Indie Notes indeed, that is part of his album Under Equestria’s Skies available for sale on his Bandcamp.
