ShalMusicFX – Starlight’s Demons (Glitch Mob Parody) | Electronic

One of my favorite releases of the month for sure, this new track and ponification by ShalMusicFX is the kind of deep tribute to our beloved characters that I love to see the most. Covering The Glitch Mob’s Our Demons, ShalMusicFX brings a brand new instrumental of many wonders and of much emotion, along gorgeous and epic vocals, to pay tribute to Starlight’s character depth in a wonderful way. Thoughtful pony lyrics are delightfully conveying much relatable feelings, as we marvel at the sheer beauty and intensity of the vocals and the instrumental that even features an awesome guitar solo. As for the part starting at 3:40, it is just giving me shivers everytime I listen to it. That dark, deep twist in the instrumental instilling an emotional mood, and those chopped vocals with that effect on them… Along the mention of Starlight and what are probably Twilight’s words, the Passion I feel for the show and the characters is surfacing, and combined with the music, it creates very powerful emotions. That, is to me the greatest magic in life. Thank you, life! And thank you MLP staff, and ShalMusicFX!

Maressey – I Want the One I Can’t Have | Indie

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 8 January 2017.

A new track from Maressey, I Want The One I Can’t Have features vocals from Zatslol and a strong instrumental from Johnny Mare. Whilst this kind of thing is always a bit of a touchy subject, I feel like this track approaches the subject matter pretty tastefully and with great production value, Zatslol’s vocals especially shine strongly in this track.

One of the coolest fandom music projects is back! Maressey is an ambitious project that aims to produce high quality pony-focused tributes to The Smiths. They’ve just released their 4th album, The Brony Album, which focuses on a lot of fandom related things, such as EQD, Bronycon, Rule 34 and Cosplay. This track, featuring amazing vocals from AdamTh3Walker, a strong instrumental from Johnny Mare and mixing from project-head Freewave, deals with the after effects of the eventual ending on the show, whenever it may be. Make sure to check it out for a really strongly produced track about a poignant topic of conversation.

The Wonderbolts Band – RAINBOW | Garage Rock

Rejoice everypony, The Wonderbolts are BACK with a new song, and this one is ready to ROCK the concert hall! A mighty ponification of Threshold from the fictional band Sex Bob-Omb, it pays tribute to The Rainbooms in much rock spirit, bringing those delightful Garage/Indie/Punk Rock vibes, in an amazing performance and along a very fitting music video made by the band’s drummer, Wootmaster. This is making you want to cheer for the band with a hoof in the air at the gig, or salute the members as you luckily spot them coming out of the garage rehearsal room and carrying their instruments in their cases! Show your support to The Wonderbolts, because this pony band is awesome, and keep rocking!
