Short yet sweet like candy, this is GhostXb’s take at Electro Swing as part of A State of Sugar Candy, aptly themed around Pinkie Pie. It’s true that she’s the perfect pony for the genre, not just by reminiscence of such community classics as Gypsy Bard, but also because the uplifting and rich flavor of the genre is reflecting Pinkie’s personality. Through the groovy rythm, and the many instruments enacting their energetic melodies, this track is playing an ode to life, sweet things, and Pinkie’s perspective!
We don’t often get Electro Swing in the community, and it’s such a shame considering the bliss of the genre! BlueBrony got us covered though, and here’s one elegant and cool piece delivering the musician’s take on the genre with all the jazzy instruments and melodies! Imagining that this could be the result of Vinyl and Octavia’s combined efforts and passion, feels awesome too!
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.
Christmas Hearth’s Warming, and so people are making festive music. And not just individual songs, entire albums too! Check it all out after the break.
Time for your fix of swing…or jazz…I’m not very good with these particular subgenres. But let’s forget the pedantry, because the Wasteland Wailers have a new song out! Even if you don’t follow the Fallout: Equestria universe and fanfictions, you can still appreciate this wonderful song made up by brony musicians from all around the world.
We completely missed this when it first released back in May, but thanks to someone sending it in to us, we’re able to share it with you today! This compilation album featuring artists from the Japanese fandom scene was released at Japan Ponycon in May earlier this year. It features some names you might recognise (e.g. Oodoratoo2, delfino), but also has a wide variety of other artists you may never have heard of, and a huge range of genres too! The above video contains previews of each track, and the album itself can be downloaded from JPP’s website for free!
Here’s something we don’t see often, some swing! With both traditional and electro-type influences, this is certainly a standout track from the LDB album if not the current brony music scene in general! Don’t just take my word for it, listen for yourself!
Moving onto the downright funky tracks from the new LDB album, we have Homage McGee and ForeverFreest (more like ForeverFreestyle! thanks to the PVFM chat for that one) up first with a swing-influenced hip-hop song. I’ve not heard Freest rap before but if this is his debut, he nailed it, and Homage always seems to have new genres up his sleeve.
Keeping with the rap vibe we have a new song from Selv3dge, a master of classic hip-hop as proven by his P@D works, featuring Melody Sky who seem to keep appearing all over the place in collabs with various artist spitting hot bars. I can’t get enough of this type of sound, we need more brony hip-hop, stat!
Just over a year after the release of their first compilation album, Beats Me, Lycan Dese Beats has released a new album, consisting of entirely new and exclusive songs by the musicians they usually feature on their show. Similar to the Ponies at Dawn albums, this album offers songs from a grand variety of artists, however, this album has a greater non-electronic influence that you might expect, perhaps more all-rounded.
You can download this from Bandcamp for any given price, and we’ll be featuring songs from the album as they’re released with an [LDB] label in the post titles.
Another song to help build the hype for BronyCon (just over a month away now!), this time from the Wasteland Wailers. An upbeat jazzy pop song, with Brittany Church on vocals as per usual, the Wasteland Wailers will be performing this and many other songs live at BronyCon this July. Now how’s that for live entertainment?! Take a listen to this new song for 50s feel-good vibes.
