We don’t often get tracks paying much tribute to Cheese Sandwich, and this one does it just right! While staying true to the Orchestral roots of the Fellowship, the song progresses into a more lively and upbeat mood full of Latin Music influence, truly fitting well the personality of the party pony that is Cheese Sandwich. And it is no wonder that the title translates to “The Cheese Sandwich”!
A much graceful new release from Lunar Drift, A Rarity in Time emphasizes on Rarity’s antics in S05E15 Rarity Investigates and truly shines bright as a rarity, going for a jazzy swing piano route with even a delightful guitar part providing the icing on the cake. This, fillies and gentlecolts, is Lunar Drift’s magic!
Forever a classic, the goldie oldie Pinkie’s Brew gets a remastered trumpet cover from TheMusicReborn, and it is definitely much welcomed! Partake in nostalgia or newfound appreciation as the original melodies lay out in a masterful trumpet arrangement, complete with a much gypsy-like instrumental accompaniment!
A new musician appears with a pretty awesome piece! We don’t hear much jazz in the fandom and The PloyMaker seems to have some skill with it. This piece focuses on some lovely trumpet and saxophone sounds, with soft drums helping to set the jazzy atmosphere. Give it a listen for a lovely night out in Manehattan!
From the charity album Seeds of Kindness 6 ~ A Change of Heart, this original and very creative piece from SDreamExplorerS sure conveys a lot of kindness through its soft instrumental full of tender guitar play. Much inspired, it lays out a nice groove in a masterful way, with bass, guitar and percussions all contributing to the heartwarming atmosphere.
This new track from BlueBrony centered around Spike’s character depth is truly a gem! Making for a blissful unusual fusion of genres, melancholic piano gives way to a Chillhop part with hints of the FF Prelude in the background, reflecting Rarity’s dreams that give such a bitter aftertaste to Spike considering how far away from him they are. The next part lays out a masterful Jazz mood, reflecting Spike’s feelings as he eats his sorrow away with donuts and Extra Sprinkles, and perhaps also matching the kind of music that some 3-pony Jazz band would play in bars such as Donut Joe’s. An utter masterpiece of a concept track, with much of a story to tell through music!
Here’s one if you’re in the mood for super chill stuff. Neighsayer has appeared plenty of times on previous P@D albums with fantastic live instrument production from jazz to blues and alt rock which my ears just melt into. Now they bring something even more smooth and mellow than usual with this remix of Mogsch and Itchigotchi’s Let The Sun Rise (albeit minus the vocals).
I…wasn’t quite expecting this to pop up on my radar! TheMusicReborn decided to take P1K’s classic in a very different style from both the original and really anything else we see on a regular basis. It may or may not be your kind of thing, but definitely worth giving a shot for a fun little tongue-in-cheek cover.
Another little gem from the Love Letters EP released a few weeks ago, marking the penultimate track on the album. Beautifully jazzy piano is joined by low-key hip-hop beats and eventually by vocals from both Vylet and Kyunn with a remorseful theme.
Here it is, what’s bound to be the best Ponies At Dawn album yet. With each new album comes both a new selection of artists as well as some of the great ones who have been around for a while – something that is in my opinion the best balance when compiling brony music.
The album is available completely for free on Bandcamp, or you pay whatever amount you wish for it. You can expect to see many of the songs from it posted on the site in the coming days and weeks!
