Andy Feelin & The Stone Pit – Granny Take Me Home | Russian Chanson

If you thought you had heard everything in this musical community, think again! Andy Feelin (from Przewalskis Ponies) and The Stone Pit bring us this very creative Russian jazz/ballad fusion telling the story of Big Mac getting put on the wrong side of the law after defending the farm from thieves. The instrumentation follows a very well-composed jazz pattern with syncopated brass and saxophones playing around a sweet, smooth percussion beat. Following a Russian theme of songs about criminals, this community once again shows its creative brilliance!

Arabesque Sympony – Jolly Ol Saint Nick (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Big Band

Arabesque Sympony shows off his clever musical skills in this track covering Spike’s feature from the MLP Holiday Album. The jazzy, swingin’ piece is recomposed brilliantly, allowing the bright brass tones to shine through, but not so much that it distracts from Sympony’s wonderful vocals. He even subtly adds Spike’s original vocals in at the end as a great accent to the track!

Rusty Thorsell – Courage (Hope and Chances) | Pop / Swing

Rusty is always good for something unique that only he could make and Courage fits that description perfectly. It is fun to bounce back and forth with this track while the piano sets much of the rhythm. Rusty accomplishes a nice, contrasting feel with the vocal work: singing in an upbeat tone to concepts of sad nostalgia mixed with optimism for hope and chances of the future. The latter portion of the song features a surprising and well-placed choir drop that doubles down on the energy of the track to round out the end of the song with a fun send-off.

Rusty – Imposter Syndrome | Electro Swing

Rusty is at it again! This song tells us about his realization of developing what is known as “Imposter Syndrome”; which is where you feel that anything good in your life, whether it be your actions or things you just find good in general, are all due to manipulation, luck, or someone else’s work. Rusty does a great job at telling this tale with infectious and emotional vocal work, that I don’t hear very often and there are plenty of developments through out to keep you coming back for more.¬†Electro Swing is hard to do right. The melody and groove in this gives off such a great vibe and the creative ways that Rusty went about producing this, is just incredible! You do not want to pass this one up!

[ASOS] GhostXb – Sugar Rush | Electro Swing

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!

BlueBrony – Roomies | Electro Swing

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!
