After a long wait, the final album in the Maressey tetralogy is here. Track 7 from The Twiluna Album is Well I Wonder, a parody of the Smiths song of the same name as well as the album’s central track. It depicts a scenario where Twilight encounters Luna on a visit to Canterlot, and the two form a large bond, making it a duet between the two. Faux Snyder and Metal Mare brilliantly play those roles, respectively, and Freewave‘s instrumental rendition of the original track is top notch!
After a long 3 year wait, Maressey have delivered their fourth and final album, The Twiluna Album! As we’ve come to expect, Maressey is a tribute act that focuses on ponified versions of songs performed by The Smiths, a British indie pop/rock band that were around in the 80s. Freewave leads the Maressey project and has brought a large amount of guests on board to help with the music and vocals, such as FritzyBeat, Faux Snyder, Fire Frets and Sylverlining. Snyder’s vocal talents in particular are to be noted, and can be heard across songs such as Bigmouth Strikes Again, Luna in a Coma and Well I Wonder; her higher voice makes for a nice contrast in place of Morrissey’s deeper baritone range. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want showcases Zatslol‘s vocal work, which is also noteworthy for featuring a striking resemblance to Morrissey’s own voice. Standout tracks include Some Mares…, Luna in a Coma and Back to the Old House, which stand as very faithful renditions to their original tracks.
Language warning! Head down below the break to find the song if you’re comfortable with that!
Part of a new album Remixie Redixie that is free to download, this very cute remix of the classic NRG is such an earworm! Especially with those vocal chops from the original that never fail, and there’s brand new pony vocal chops from Toby as well, along the instrumental that’s in the musician’s signature style! A delight of a remix!
You’d better believe that Vylet’s got tricks up her sleeve. Track 10 from Queen of Misfits is some pop goodness about Equestria’s most misunderstood magician, Trixie. Starting off with some vocal chops from Tricks Up My Sleeve, we’re led into Vylet’s smooth voice in front of a punchy drum pattern and a realistic sounding bassline. Vylet sings with conviction through the chorus with lyrics about how great and powerful her self-appointed sorcery is. Can’t get much better than this!
A yearly tradition now, this new re-imagining of Vylet’s No Matter What stars brand new amazing vocals as well as an instrumental more polished than ever, for the reiteration of the song along added meanings!
EESO has a very distinctive style and it is always a joy to hear a new track from them because you can be assured that it will be wholesome and genuinely heartfelt. Life of a Brony has a soft, showtunes-y feel like a love song from a Disney movie or a warm, season-ending track from MLP. The piano composition is on point with beautiful accompaniment from violins and just the right amount of energy from the percussion to make this song both soothing and easy to rock back and forth to.
Metajoker makes a grand return with 4EverfreeBrony by his side for a catchy alt rock track reminiscient of Two Door Cinema Club! The duo’s harmonies and glitzy guitar riffs set to lyrics about Celestia and Luna’s relationship and memories of how things once were are simply sublime and incredibly memorable. Welcome back, Metajoker! We can’t wait to see what else you come out with.
4everfreebrony brings us another awesome cover, this time a Vylet Pony track! This cover adds a new and unique rock spin on the original, with both acoustic and electric guitar, drums and other rock elements setting the track aside from the original in an amazing way.
The elusive strigidae has returned yet again. He rarely posts music (his channel has only 5 tracks from late 2016 onward, for example), but when he does, it’s a real treat. This track showcases his usual indie style as a tribute to Pinkie’s wind instrument skills from the trombone to the yovidaphone, even going as far as to feature riffs from a trumpet towards the end. strigidae’s voice is a unique one in the fandom, which cuts through this song like a knife. Don’t miss out on this one!
