This totally not confusingly-titled song by Francis Vace is…well, as it says in the thumbnail, a cover of NewPatrol’s remix of Flak’s song Walls. So kinda hitting 2 birds with one stone in terms of the specifications of the latest Ponies At Dawn album. Not only that, but it combines Vace’s 3 main styles of punk, ska and, more recently, metal. Really hitting all those birds, poor things…
Here’s the results of last month’s community vote for the top ten pony songs of November, enjoy!
Not for the first time, Francis Vace has made a nice little EP of cover songs, in a variety of his favourite styles. Last year he performed his favourites from the 3rd Equestria Girls movie, and now he’s taken on the 4th – Legend of Everfree. 4 songs from the film ranging in genre from punk to reggae, and of course with a bit of his signature ska sound twisted in here and there. If you’re a fan of his original work, you’re sure to enjoy his take on these songs too. And best of all, you can download it entirely for free from his bandcamp page!
This is my jam!! An amazing fusion made possible by a most lovely collaboration, this Skacore track blends Francis Vace‘s Ska-Punk style and vocals with The L-Train’s signature Metal sound for a combination of vocal styles and an instrumental of much originality and force, sublimated by a masterful trumpet play from TheMusicReborn. While it looks like our friend Anon is in trouble, we sure are getting the special treatment from Pinkie as she inspired such a wonderful collab. Among the delightful Ska vibes, the heavy guitar riffs, and both the softer and harsher vocals from Francis, this impressive song will take any party to its peak, perhaps triggering an Overdrive!
Start your morning off with a BANG with some Dashie-themed ska from Quicksilver. This track comes in anticipation of his upcoming album, Six and One, due to be released on June 1st! You know what that means? TIME FOR HYPE! 😀
After weeks, no, months of anticipation, it’s finally here. The new Ponies At Dawn Album, Awakening, has finally been released. A compilation of 54 amazing tracks from just as many artists, this album brings together – in my opinion – one of the best selections of music the brony fandom has to offer. And the best thing is, you can download it for free, or pay whatever you want for it! Here’s to everyone involved for their hard work in putting this together!
♫ We’ll find awakening my friend ♪
♪ We’ll find salvation at the end ♫
♫ Of the world we’ll start again ♪
Francis Vace teams up with lyricist and singer iRhymeTheSongs and releases Is Pinkie Pie Related, another ponification of 80s band Ramones under the very fitting alias Rapones. Expect some Punk Rock greatness with hints of Ska, as heard in Equestrian gig halls and live bars!
Francis has been on a roll recently with these cover songs (including a couple of non-pony ones). Have his latest – a rendition of WoodenToaster, The Living Tombstone and Rina Chan’s Lost on the Moon, done in his wonderfully unique Ska-Punk style!
The closing song (and one of my favourites) from his album Lost in a Pastel Hue, this song also features on Opalescence. I have to admit, I didn’t realise the meaning behind the lyrics until this video was released. Just goes to show effective subtlety is when writing music about colourful pastel horses.
Hey everyone. So, remember the announcement about that charity album we made a couple of days ago? Well it’s been finished and released! More details are on the Bandcamp page but basically, any funds needed to help TheLostNarrator will go to her surgery and medical fees, and anything raised past the $1,500 threshold will be given to a charity of her choice.
