We all need to feel validation from time to time, and Luna Jax is no exception. His desire for approval is clearly shown through this piece, and even though he knows we all love his music, that voice of doubt can bother even the most talented of us. I’m sure many of us can relate to these lyrics, and the feelings behind them. 4EverFreeBrony is the owner of the fingers responsible for that amazing guitar work, you can recognise his unique style quite easily. Well done to both of you, keep up the amazing (and truly wonderful) work!
DoTheDaringDew’s been steadily improving as a musician lately, and another step on that path is this new EP of 5 new tracks, each showcasing what he can do fairly well. His instrumental abilities are certainly a bit more advanced than his vocals, but it’s still a great package of fun with tracks about Daring Do, Starlight Glimmer and more.
WoodLore may be pretty much done with producing music for the fandom, but 4Everfree is keeping the spirit of his music alive with this beautiful interpretation of one of his old classics, Shining Star. Featuring some lovely violin from Koron Korak, 4Everfree’s vocals are a lovely new take on the lyrics with a soft and sweet instrumental.
Some regular features this month, some not so regular. Check out the latest Horse Music Hotspot, rounding up some of our favourites from April!
Tracklist and embeds available after the break
Time for something a little different from Zephy. While he normally works in and around the Orchestral genre, this time he’s broken out into a little bit of folk, seemingly inspired by the Rarijack artwork. It’s nice to hear Zephy sing too, I can’t remember if he’s done that in any of his previous songs before!
Kelvin continues his recent Applejack-themed acoustic streak (in fact, it’s all part of an upcoming album) with this more melancholic piece about wanting to go back to the past and simply remain there.
I have been seriously enjoying ThatMusicReborn’s ‘Mythical 6’ series, and this new Fluttershy track is an awesome way to continue it! Featuring vocals from both himself and Faux Synder, the dual voices fit together terrifically, with the instrumental supporting them to help create a mystical feel to the piece.
Kelvin C. H. Reverie, previously known as Sonic Hooves is back with some more Applejack-themed music. Blending orchestral and acoustic together, we end up with this relaxing “country style waltz”, which also sounds like it could fit into a fantasy game soundtrack…probably not necessarily intended but still a nice consequence.
Sonic Hooves has always been great with composition and emotional impact in his music. Yet every time a new track comes out, there’s a reason to stop and say “Wow, this is really good!” Song from the Earth Pony is a gorgeous piece made up of just two acoustic guitars, yet the melody is incredible. There’s a reflective notion in the style and it really helps emphasize the pride in being a hardworking earth pony. The track itself isn’t particularly long, and there is no excuse not to check it out!
The Shake-Ups are still going strong with their latest song, I’m the Draconequus. This track is a nod to the Beatles’ hit “I Am the Walrus” and depicts the master of chaos as he is now. Featuring excellent acoustic guitar work throughout, I’m the Draconequus is a mellow rock track, but not without group vocals and an accompanying violin that add the necessary chaos into the song.If you like some southern rock, country pop, or just some general chaos, then make sure to click on this video!
