DoTheDaringDew – DoTheDaringDew EP | Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 11 July 2018.

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.

Crimes Against Sound – Lyra Heartstrings (Peggy Lee ponified) | Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 3 June 2018.

This is the first music release from Korneev (that I’m aware of at least), and it’s a good one too! A fantastic parody of Johnny Guitar (a song which some may have heard from the Fallout New Vegas soundtrack) all about Lyra, it has some absolutely gorgeous hand-drawn animation as well of Lyra jamming along.

[P@D] Replacer & P1K – Sky Blues| Blues Rock

Coming from the newest P@D album, Rebirth, here we have a 6-minute track featuring the amazing talents of Replacer and P1K. Both being old schoolers in the fandom music scene, both playing an amazing blues rock track, full of cool guitar riffs and amazing drumming work! P1K’s vocals are really on point and the sweet and almost robotic vocals of Replacer melted my heart like the amazing guitar riffs that are featured in here. An incredible track, incredible artists, an incredible album! I loved this track sooo much!

Download Rebirth at P@D’s bandcamp that you won’t regret it! If you are rich, buy it for supporting the artists!

Rockin’Brony feat. Friends – A Long Way From Equestria (Covering MandoPony & AcousticBrony) | Blues

Sharing and spreading the positive messages and values from MLP is what I think defines us the most as Bronies, and it’s precisely what the original song A Long Way From Equestria is about. Here wonderfully covered by Rockin’Brony & Friends, it lives on through our hearts and the newer generations of pony musicians, to shine and spread the word once more, that we Bronies are changing the world. Enjoy this spectacular, heartfelt, and emotional rendition of the song by Rockin’Brony with the help and the shared magic of Friendship of 4EverfreeBrony, Cyril The Wolf, Luck Rock, Sable Symphony, Strumpet, and StealingShad3z! Wonderful job, y’all! Much love! Let’s keep making this world more like Equestria!

Soren Ember – Fade Away | Blues

A new release from Soren Ember bringing all the sweet rock influences, this one is about Tempest’s story from the movie! Exploring her feelings during the time she got rejected and alone, Fade Away does a great job at emcompassing the somber and lonely shades of the theme, with vocals howling to the moon, and a bass play that seems to tell the sad story of what happened to Tempest. An awesome tribute!

Elias Frost – Sunset Blues | Blues

Elias Frost ventures down the blues route in this tribute to Equestria Girls’ resident blue-haired guitar player. As if written by Flash Sentry himself, the lyrics appropriately recall Sunset Shimmer’s manipulation of the poor guy. Frost’s vocals greatly compliment the style, conveying the “blues” emotions of loss and pain along to an incredible guitar track. The entire song is an excellent portrayal of the blues genre (though not surprising given Elias’s particular talent for distinctly different and awesome music)!

Seventh Element – The Equestrian Wasteland – Part 1: Hope And Despair | Album | Post-Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 22 November 2017.

Seventh Element makes some cool tunes, but where he really excels is in the creation of concept albums such as this. With a combination of spooky ambient soundscapes and driving indie rock beats, this album definitely helps to visualise the desolate landscapes of Fallout Equestria. Check it out below for half an hour of hope and despair!
