There’s no stopping Vylet, is there? Track 14 from her album Love Letters: Colourless as well as the title track, it’s an emotional instrumental piece. Consisting of just a piano and the sounds of rain, it perfectly accents the diary entry included with the album, describing Rainbow Dash’s feelings for Rarity as she listens to a piece of music entitled Mistress, said to be written by the latter (though in reality was written by Vylet, and appeared on the Love Letters album). Sometimes you don’t need words to get your message across.
In tandem with This Place Will Never Let Me Leave, Yet Sightless is the mane album and showcase of what Viricde has been up to, that we’ve been excited about for a while. And oh boy, was it worth the wait! Such incredible compositions are blowing us away and that from the start, as Eleanor’s story unfolds in musical form. Check out the full story from the description on Bandcamp! Experimental, refined, creative, and harmonious, the masterpieces are bringing such melodic bliss along the amazing basslines and vocals in pure Viricide Filly style, as we dive in atmospheres from unseen realms!
This song has a lot of synth, some keyboard, and a little bit of drum that all work together to make an excellent and relaxing piece of music. It’s not too fast, not too slow, and is definitely filled with emotion and passion.
An absolute masterpiece taking you emotionally from the very start, Niłch’i Poni‘s contribution to Ponies at Dawn Eternal is an experience to say the least. Taking you through unknown realms, showcasing insane sound design and captivating atmospheres, the piece then uplifts you with the power of DnB with such an intense part, complete with deep bass and here again, a lot of emotion to complete the otherworldly journey through sound. A pre-release from Drumscape Library!
For Sunset Day and in tribute to our beloved unicorn-turned-human, BaconHairGirl created this very soothing piece that reflects so well the deserved peace of mind and the resolve that the strong girl got after all that happened. Definitely picturing much character depth, those melodies are quite emotional and this song makes for the perfect music to listen to while reflecting on your own life and past, gazing at a sunset, with these characters in your heart!
Our patience has been rewarded, as Steroytype’s debut EP, Lofi Pon EP is finally here! 14 tracks of lo-fi hip hop goodness, with sprinkles of MLP samples and various vintage sounds, such as vinyl noise and old time music. The majority of tracks are less than two minutes long, so nothing here feels like it goes on too long or overstays its welcome. Stand out tracks are JustKeepVibin with its clear hip hop influence coupled with a modified horn sample, and TheyDon’tReallyLikeMe (OhWell) , containing a lovely melody and manipulated guitar samples while keeping the general lo-fi aesthetic. Groovy yet serene, this is a beautiful EP that you can simply sit back and relax to after a long day.
A light electronic element, a little keyboard, and the sounds of rain in the background. This song is really calm, and honestly, pretty relaxing. A great song to play in the background, and a great song in general!
Yet another ASoS: Waffle track; this time it’s Paloris with track 22 (the second of their two submissions to the album), A Complete Breakfast! Fitting name; this could easily be a good piece of music to start the day with, whether you’re waking up and eating breakfast or walking down the street in the morning. It starts out with typical sounds you’d expect to hear in the morning, such as a clock ticking and the distant chirping of birds, all set to a chilled beat consisting of a soft xylophone melody, a bitcrushed synth melody (which really reminds me of the GameCube menu theme, oddly enough) and neatly placed drum samples, some of which were made from Paloris’ mouth! Hopefully this will become a great addition to your morning routine.
If Tw3Lv3 was capable of producing anything bad, I don’t know what I’d do. Once again, he’s made an enjoyable lo-fi beat with a vintage sample, only this time with the addition of 8-bit chiptune sounds! Coupled with footage of the fantastic 2011 fangame Story of the Blanks as a visual, it makes for a great and nostalgic listening experience. Tw3Lv3 wants there to be more lo-fi music in the fandom, and if it sounds like this, then I’m on board!
Pone beat producer Steryotype returns to the fold with a very serene lo-fi piece. Though short, it sets a good mood with a vintage sample as its foundation with prominent record sounds and a soft drum beat. This is a good track to relax to, or if you need some background music to help you through the day. It’ll also be available as part of his upcoming EP, Lofi Pon, coming September 13th!
