Kareniya – Hush Now, Little Sister (covering Daniel Ingram) | Acoustic

Kareniya brings us his amazing cover of “Hush Now, Little Sister” a rather lesser remembered song from the episode ‘Somepony to Watch Over Me’ and no matter what you think about the original you will like his cover of it. Using only a guitar and his voice Kareniya gives this song the feeling of an old classic you listen to when you go on vacation cause you´re parents put it on a CD. The song is perfect too just chill out for an hour or two with it just in the background or as background music for working on anything. The song really conveys the feeling of security the original gave to Apple Bloom.

NyxTheShield – Flutterwonder (feat. Vannamelon) (Covering PinkiePieSwear) | Acoustic

Longtime fandom music fans likely need no introduction to the original “Flutterwonder” by PinkiePieSwear. There have been many remixes and covers of this fantastic track, and NyxTheShield made an acoustic cover of it themself years ago (with the help of some great vocals by Shiny Song), adding some simple but lovely lyrics in place of the masterful vocal splicing of the original. Definitely check out the previous versions if you haven’t before!
This new version is absolutely beautiful. It benefits from NyxTheShield’s improved production skills, and the acoustic music format is even more immersive than before. The song even features some great recorder (yes, recorder) work! The secret sauce here is that Vannamelon‘s voice suits Fluttershy’s character really well, and, paired with the accompanying art and animation, it transports the viewer to the time of young Fluttershy discovering the wonders of life on the ground. The overall effect is mesmerizing and uplifting. Please give it a listen!

Jess Furman – Pony Life (When Hooves Meet Face Cover) | Metal

When Hooves Meet Face (have I seen him somewhere?) has covered the most metal theme in the entire franchise – the Pony Life theme song. Accompanied by a funny and well-produced music video, this cover has a very tight mix – like it could be set to the actual theme video and fit perfectly. I keep listening to the song to talk about the instrumentation and dynamics, but the video is so entertaining I keep forgetting to listen closely. The second half of the track includes a heavy breakdown and honestly, the whole cover is so satisfying to listen to. Take the 1 minute it takes to listen to this and do yourself a favor!
