BlueBrony – See the World (Open Up Your Eyes) | Chillhop

Be ready for what may be BlueBrony’s magnum opus. This deep track centered around a certain part of Tempest Shadow/Fizzlepop Berrytwist’s story and character depth is showcasing a divine musical vision and talent that takes us through an incredible progression of musical atmospheres, soundscapes, melodies, and instruments that all create such a powerful emotion as it unfolds. An otherworldly experience for the soul, this masterpiece is another proof that music is magic. And the icing on the cake, it’s also reflecting a personal meaning from the musician!

Frozen Night – Nature’s Frozen Embrace | Ambient / Soundtrack

An undiscovered OST track from the fanmade pony game Ambient.White, Nature’s Frozen Embrace lives up to both the name of the game and the name of Frozen Night, with a delightful Ambient atmosphere that seems to depict a snowy landscape to explore or a mystical place frozen in time where some fateful event happened… or would happen as you visit it in the game.

Wandering Artist – Ghost | Soundtrack

Created for the popular Pony Town’s Halloween update, Wandering Artist really delivers a fantastic tune with a spooky but whimsical atmosphere. It’s incredibly easy to imagine this in a video game, especially during a night or a graveyard level, and the use of background ambiance, as well as sparse strings is top-notch on this tune!
Available for download on Wandering Artist’s Bandcamp.

Ponylution – Falling in Sky (bank pain Remix) | Liquid Drum & Bass

Falling in Sky has always been a great song and bank pain does an excellent job here giving it a breathe of air. Breaking away from the original’s epic and energetic chord structure and instead going with a more laid back and flowing melting pot of harmonies, bank really brings forward the feeling of ‘falling in the sky’ in a new light and is a soothing take on the original.

FilledSilhoutte – The New Form EP | Ambient

Beginning production in the community relatively recently, FilledSilhoutte’s eerie new EP is quite the intriguing experiment with soundscapes. The majority of it has some awesome experimentation with ambience and sound design, especially on the dystopic Hysteria. What exactly the “New Form” is is up to the listener, but, needless to say, it is beyond sinister. My personal favorite is the noisy, percussive Overthrown, which is chaotic and has a deceptively simple backing trap-inspired beat. I am beyond interested to hear more conceptual albums from FilledSilhoutte in the future, and you should be, too.

[More Music for the Headless Horse] Cynifree – Sights Unseen | Experimental Downtempo

It’s so good to get a contribution to noise.horse‘s compilation album More Music for the Headless Horse from Cynifree, who nailed the theme and mood so well with an experimental track about the many mysteries of the Everfree Forest! This musical journey takes us through the narrows paths and spooky places of the forest, with a deep bass reflecting the unsettling atmosphere, and Nightmare Night-like melodies for a full immersion! Gotta love initiatives like these so much.

One Track Mind – Nightly Mares EP | Electronic


Just in time for the spooky holiday, One Track Mind brings us six great tracks to really get into the Nightmare Night spirit! This extended play uses a great array of dynamics to convey an overwhelming, almost helpless at times emotion throughout a very exciting set of songs.

The first track, Nightfall, does an incredible job setting up the feel of the rest of the EP, introducing an exciting, horror themed soundscape that flows beautifully into the second track.

Edge of the Forest is an exciting track right up until One Track Mind flips it on it’s head and gives the track a somber, chilling finish.

Unloyal starts off like a disco track and runs with that theme, managing to be eerie in it’s upbeat style. About halfway through the soft, terrifying feel of Edge of the Forest comes back to top off the track with that familiar fear feeling.

Fluttering Lullaby is an intense, more powerful track. The synth is on-point with the tense drums, invoking imagery of someone slowly losing their mind.

Black Heart Purple Fur changes up everything with narration over top of a distorted, stop-beat intro. This song is more laid back from the rest of the EP, and utilizes a high, ticking noise to induce anxiety throughout.

Giggles in the Dark wraps up the EP very nicely, like you are racing out of the woods, not knowing if you will make it or not. This track incorporates great dubstep wubs and has several moving parts that keep it interesting and intense!

FilledSilhoutte – Annexation | Ambient

Part of a new upcoming concept album, “The New Form”, Annexation is a delightful Ambient song that really sets an incredible atmosphere with those deep synths and also hoofsteps. Icing on the cake, the electronic experimental/psychedelic synths near the end are reminding me of early electronic music pioneers such as Klaus Schulze, and it’s a real bliss! Read about the story of this track from the description of FilledSilhoutte’s upload, and get hype for the impending release of the album!
