Thrack – Ballad of an Earth Pony | Folk

Thrack has emerged this year not only as a solid drummer, but also a funny and talented songwriter! This folksy, acoustic ballad is equal parts humorous as it is catchy as Thrack sings of the paradoxes of trying to be a pirate while dealing with the limitations of earth ponies. The syncopation is snappy and guarantees you’ll be singing along long after the song has ended!

Algo at All – Lullaby for a Lost Soul | Acoustic

Algo’s latest musical offering certainly lives up to its name! Like many common lullabies, it’s incredibly relaxing yet the lyrics are twinged with sadness. It’s a beautifully simple piece of music made up of just 4 components – guitar, voice, drum and strings – but sometimes that’s all you need to tell a compelling story.

Wandering Artist – At the end of the day | Album | Orchestral / Soundtrack

Wandering Artist is back once again with another incredible collection of environments and medleys, seven in fact as part of their new album “At the end of the day”.

Originally developed as a radio drama soundtrack involving Sunny, inspired by long commutes to work as of late and how well radio shows can keep you company during those lonely drives, but “at the end of the day”, decided to just release it as music, allowing us to think of our own stories and contemplate on what Sunny did during her day while she finally gets a moment of respite!

Nyanakaru – Someone Like You | Corrido Tumbado

Nyanakaru (a.k.a. Nyancat380) brings us something a bit different than their usual flair. “Someone Like You” has an almost relaxing vibe that lures you into a false sense of ease as the lyrics initially sound like a love song. Don’t get too relaxed though, as there’s a twist which the chilling artwork by Highroller alludes to. The mixing puts you in the center of the band as the instrumentals immerse your ears, switching between surround sound with different instruments in each ear and a single more monotone guitar, all while maintaining an old-timey phonographic vibe. This track is RariJack to the extreme and, while slightly creepy, is still a bop worth listening to.

Raramena, anyone?
