Rusty – 22nd Jeremiah |Indie Pop / Experimental

Rusty is back at it again with their unique style of story telling! This song is a haunting tale of the 22nd Jeremiah; a rusted metal husk of a ship said to contain countless souls and horrors lost at sea generations ago. The vocal processing is quite intriguing, and the steady rise and fall of the melody as it blends electronic elements and pirate themed  instrumentation really sells the story! The amount of unorthodox distortions and rigid aspects are quite an experimental treat! If a haunting shanty is what you are after then you’ve found the right song!

AllCatPony – Helping Twilight Win The Crown (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Garage Rock

Watch the Wondercolts jam in their garage, and perform a new rock rendition of their song in the school cafeteria! And perhaps this is what sparked the foundation of the Rainbooms! At least that’s what we could imagine by listening to this awesome cover by AllCatPony that pays much tribute to the original!

After Zizkil and his recent Rarity track The Vogue, it’s time for Remember Falling to pay tribute to our beloved white lady!

Vylet Pony – Monolith to a Halcyon (feat. Namii & GalaxySquid) | Synth-Rock

This has got to be one of my favorite tracks from Vylet Pony’s latest album: Homeward. Vylet has long been known for their amazing vocal talent, and when accompanied by Namii and GalaxySquid, the resulting sound is nothing less then stellar. There are a few changes throughout the arrangement that keep the feeling of wonder alive.  The song tells of a mysterious room, but there is much more to the story…

Remember Falling – Change the World (ft. BearSlayer & Cerridwen | Melodic Dubstep/ Indie Pop

Remember Falling has released Change the World which tells a story from Hollow’s friend, Infinity as the pair gets ready to face the challenges set in front of them.

This is also the first track released by Remember Falling to feature voice acting, which I think adds to the story and theme they are going for and is a nice touch. The switch ups between the faster and slower parts transition really well and if you like upbeat poppy music and the more refined soothing sounds of melodic dubstep this song, this gives a healthy dose of both and I love how everything comes together!

Vylet Pony & Sylver – Harbour (Pts. I & II) | Alternative Rock / Ambient

Yet another release from Vylet’s Homeward Album. They combine both parts of Harbour  and its really cool how seamless both these parts are despite giving off a very different vibe. If you aren’t already aware, this album is all part of an intricate story that really helps bring the world of Homeward into perspective and I highly recommend you give it a read.

Harbour is actually the song Vylet is listening to on his way to visit Sylver in the story specifically in the first part. We get a very upbeat and energetic rock track that Vylet says helps him to “drown the crippling fear induced by being away from home,”  The chorus is infectious and all of the elements blend together to create something truly powerful.

As the song winds down we are met with a *click* and a stark contrast as the atmosphere opens up into the bustle and noise of the Starship Ponyville which signifies the part of the story where Vylet has switched off the song and is waiting for Sylver to invite him inside his suite to reminisce on memories of Equestria and just tell each other stories to pass the time. Now I love these small details, especially when you have the context of the written story, they just breathe an air of immersion and I really appreciate when the little things, be it a conversation from the story, or sound effects are mixed into the music.

From here everything slows down and a soothing piano melody plays followed by some minute glissando and various string and woodwinds with the sounds of the busy life of the starship in the background the polyphony is wonderous and it ends all too soon but is a really touching extension to the song.

Come and get that tasty rock sound everypony! It will never get old, and MelodyBrony had such an awesome idea here with this tribute to Sweetie Bot, delving into all the deep themes associated with that fanmade character. What’s more, the awesome Luck Rock got invited to play the bass! I love to see such musical collabs in the community, it feels just like friends in the neighborhood going into each other’s garage to jam and write songs together! Keep it up guys, much love!

Man this song brings in the Feelings along with Beautiful and Outstanding vibes! I am honest in this track is my favourite from the Album! This track just brings, so much enlightment in me that I instantly feel Motivated to write Music! The story involved with this is that Satyrn & Vylet a Journal that leads-up to a Meteorite that was found in Saddle-Arabia. Is another adventure setting itself up? Will we see more badassery from Satyrn, Vylet, and the whole crew of the Starship Ponyville? Because legit, the Story is wonderful! And it would be amazing to see it expand more and more! Just as the track itself feels so wonderfully Adventurous! I’ll gladly withstand another Epilepsy attack to feel and witness it! And here’s to more write-ups from Homeward!
