Rusty – 22nd Jeremiah |Indie Pop / Experimental

Rusty is back at it again with their unique style of story telling! This song is a haunting tale of the 22nd Jeremiah; a rusted metal husk of a ship said to contain countless souls and horrors lost at sea generations ago. The vocal processing is quite intriguing, and the steady rise and fall of the melody as it blends electronic elements and pirate themed  instrumentation really sells the story! The amount of unorthodox distortions and rigid aspects are quite an experimental treat! If a haunting shanty is what you are after then you’ve found the right song!

4everfreebrony – Birdsong (feat. Relative1Pitch) [2019] | Acoustic / Pop

Six years ago 4everfreebrony released their first brony song, Birdsong. Now after honing their craft they have released a revamped version!  This is a wonderful nostalgia trip for those who’ve been around for a while and even if you haven’t its still  stellar song today. I love seeing how far they’ve come since way back than, with a much improved sound stage and vocal recording. 4everfree gives us the version they’ve wanted to release since the start, and I couldn’t ask for more.

Vylet Pony – Monolith to a Halcyon (feat. Namii & GalaxySquid) | Synth-Rock

This has got to be one of my favorite tracks from Vylet Pony’s latest album: Homeward. Vylet has long been known for their amazing vocal talent, and when accompanied by Namii and GalaxySquid, the resulting sound is nothing less then stellar. There are a few changes throughout the arrangement that keep the feeling of wonder alive.  The song tells of a mysterious room, but there is much more to the story…

Remember Falling – Change the World (ft. BearSlayer & Cerridwen | Melodic Dubstep/ Indie Pop

Remember Falling has released Change the World which tells a story from Hollow’s friend, Infinity as the pair gets ready to face the challenges set in front of them.

This is also the first track released by Remember Falling to feature voice acting, which I think adds to the story and theme they are going for and is a nice touch. The switch ups between the faster and slower parts transition really well and if you like upbeat poppy music and the more refined soothing sounds of melodic dubstep this song, this gives a healthy dose of both and I love how everything comes together!

Vylet Pony & Sylver – Harbour (Pts. I & II) | Alternative Rock / Ambient

Yet another release from Vylet’s Homeward Album. They combine both parts of Harbour  and its really cool how seamless both these parts are despite giving off a very different vibe. If you aren’t already aware, this album is all part of an intricate story that really helps bring the world of Homeward into perspective and I highly recommend you give it a read.

Harbour is actually the song Vylet is listening to on his way to visit Sylver in the story specifically in the first part. We get a very upbeat and energetic rock track that Vylet says helps him to “drown the crippling fear induced by being away from home,”  The chorus is infectious and all of the elements blend together to create something truly powerful.

As the song winds down we are met with a *click* and a stark contrast as the atmosphere opens up into the bustle and noise of the Starship Ponyville which signifies the part of the story where Vylet has switched off the song and is waiting for Sylver to invite him inside his suite to reminisce on memories of Equestria and just tell each other stories to pass the time. Now I love these small details, especially when you have the context of the written story, they just breathe an air of immersion and I really appreciate when the little things, be it a conversation from the story, or sound effects are mixed into the music.

From here everything slows down and a soothing piano melody plays followed by some minute glissando and various string and woodwinds with the sounds of the busy life of the starship in the background the polyphony is wonderous and it ends all too soon but is a really touching extension to the song.
