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.

Maressey – There is a Light That Never Goes Out | Indie

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 22 December 2016.

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!

Versal – Please Don’t Shoot Me Down (ft. Silver Note & Buffalo Brony) | Rap / Hip-Hop

It’s a rework / cover of a parody of a Lil Wayne song. The original parody was done by Versal, Dubious, and Rhyme Flow back in 2013, and this version has Silver Note on vocals for the chorus (which IMO sounds better Lil Wayne’s original) and Buffy rapping his own custom 2nd verse. However, this goes in a very different direction to the 2013 version and focuses on the aftermath of Lightning Dust’s demise in Wonderbolt Academy, and completely changes the tone of the refrain.
