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.

Daniel Ingram – Pinkie’s Present (Vinny Schway Remix) | Electro Swing

We don’t often get pony Electro Swing and this time Vinny Schway got us covered, with a tasteful remix of Pinkie’s Present from S06E08 A Hearth’s Warming Tail! Pinkie is leading the way around town and all the happiness around with her vocals, as punchy beats and jazzy piano are paving the road to a heart-warming time with the ponies.

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!
