Now here’s the perfect Sunset Shimmer theme to listen to while chilling in some latino bar. You sit there at the terrace, sipping on some sweet and refreshing cocktail… And then a sexy girl giving off massive cool vibes as well walks from the busy main street in your direction, with a short skirt and eyes burning with desire, and that girl is Sunset! Yep, this is the sort of scene that this song and visuals could evoke, with the blissful acoustic guitars soothing your mind, and the flirty sax bringing in that fragrant sensation from a Summer Kiss!
Here is the perfect set of tracks for when you need to just unwind, or maybe want to have something on in the background while you are getting stuff done! Yanamosuda has compiled quite an interesting array of tracks blending the right amount of peacefulness and groove to both relax and keep you interested.
There are a healthy variety of genres inspiring the album that all touch on the chill theme. One thing you can be sure of is that each track will have it’s own compelling, jazzy bass that blends almost too well with an exciting drum beat.
The album is comprised of original mixes like the titular Little Energy and Dusk Song (which has an amazing funk rhythm!), remixes from show songs like the theme and Evil Enchantress, and finally remixes of fan music like Dawn Song from Kitsuneyu and Get Lady by eksoka (featured on Cider Party!) It is plain to hear from the album that Yanamosuda put a lot of time, thought, and effort into this tremendously unique album.
Little Energy is available on Yanamosuda’s Bandcamp website as a free download, so there is absolutely no excuse not to have these 13 tracks in your library right now!
The opener track of Yanamosuda’s debut album Little Energy is a sweet and tasteful Jazz treat that reminds me of video game soundtrack such as Beneath the Mask from the OST of Persona 5! Playing laid-back yet beautiful melodies, and creating such a comfy atmosphere, the musician certainly pays much tribute to the gentle and kind pony!
It’s not just Nightmare Night, it’s also Trixie Day! And Arabesque Sympony made such a lovely cover of Trixie’s Tricks up My Sleeve from EQG2, in the spirit of the spooky night! Getting on stage to play along with Trixie, the pony musician not only covered the instrumental delightfully using the power of rock (including an amazing bass solo), but is also covering the song with his own vocals that are so cute and beautiful. Overall a very addictive cover that will make you want to sing along and raise your hooves, and cheer for Arabesque Sympony and Trixie!
We need more Jazz in the community, and these ponies answered the call (just like a detective would in their office) and provided the sweetest collab for Ponies at Dawn Enigma, themed around Detective Rarity! Osoch on Bass, Mane In Green on keyboards, TheMusicReborn on trumpet, and Zephysonas on sax, that makes a full-fledged Jazz band! The Stylish Sleuth is a real bliss for the ears and I can only thank all these pony musicians for gathering and creating something this wonderful. One More!
GhostXb is back at it with a sweet, chill out track! Still Here is a fun, laid back piece, utilizing a great fusion of different styles. The drums and synth bring a great, hip-hop beat as a foundation for smooth, delicious saxophone that keeps you movin’ along with the vibe. Great for when you need something to listen to or wanna dance while sitting in your chair, GhostXb did a fantastic job on this song!
Fresh off of Vylet’s new album, he and Sylver combine to make this 50s style instrumental track. Catching On is inspired by several different worldly influences and has a nice blend of a jazzy beat with Brazilian and Mediterranean instrumentation. Even with the upbeat tempo, the song has a very chilled out vibe to it – an impressive achievement befitting the talent of great producers like Vylet and Sylver!
Here’s something a little different! Andy Feelin of the prolific Przewalski’s Ponies brings some groovy, almost gypsy jazz-esque vibes with this one, and Tooi delivers some heavenly vocals with lyrics about the ponies exploring the Everfree Forest, the northern mountains, and other parts of Equestria. Check this one out if you’re a fan of Lenich and Kirya’s gypsy jazz or Przewalski’s Ponies!
So Vylet does jazz now. To be honest, that shouldn’t be too surprising. Not only is he a man of many talents, but this song seems to have a similar mood and timbre to his chillout indie pop stuff, but just on a different set of instruments.
Equestria Electric Symphony Orchestra always keeps it interesting and catchy! This moving, late 60s style track has a lot of great elements to it including a jazzy bass, fun pop beat, and some rock thrown in to boot! EESO sings about the trials and self-doubt that come with the struggle to get a cutie mark before ultimately realizing that his special talent is love. The lyrics are very clever and the track as a whole is dangerously addicting. Love’s My Cutie Mark is an incredibly creative track that will get you dancing and singing along in no time!
