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!
Brace yourselves everypony, because you’re about to get surprised in the most amazing ways, as we present to you the result of two years of collaborative effort from musicians of the 4chan /mlp/ board, a massive 51-tracks album of stunning quality. Featuring a wide variety of genres (even including some very unusual ones), perhaps even more variety than in the P@D or LDB albums, this heartfelt compilation of sophisticated tunes will surprise and delight as you experience its many wonders, such as the very mellow and enthralling RarityRF (#7), the emotional and surprising you-would-never-guess pony vocals from Flut (#8), the incredible vocal chops from Protocat’s remix of I’ll Fly (#11), the masterful collaboration work in To Anon Too Late (#15), one of the best and most epic remixes of Luna’s Future (#21), Feral FurE’s wonderful remix of Better Than Ever (#26), some more feels from the Out On My Own remix (#29), the original Derpy-centered Surf Rock track Surfin’ Derp (#30), the blissful piano melodies from Tree of Harmony (#32), the heartfelt realtalk combined with quality instrumental in Waifu Blues (#33), the mighty rock spirit from Eclipses (#48), or the massive party track The Club Pony Party Palace (#50) that I will feature as a solo post next. I guess the expression “Do not judge a book by its cover” works here, and you won’t be disappointed if you decide to go give the full album a proper listen (and if you would consider donating, note that all proceeds will go to charity). This music lover, for one, is blown away.
Isn’t it wonderful when fan songs complete or extend the depth present in the show? This new song from ChickenSteve is a fine exemple, with all the events of No Second Prances and Trixie’s depth of character surfacing again in a musical way, not without that ability of triggering powerful emotions all over again, a magic that I’m calling Passion and that we can all awaken to. Food for the soul, heartfelt ode to Trixie, or blissful music masterpiece, there are many ways to appreciate this wonderful song. Don’t forget to show your gratitude to the artist and to life, and keep feeling powerful things!
Compiling nearly 2 years’ worth of his brony music, Silver Note has just released his first ever album. After the break I’ll take a look at each track and give you a full rundown of it, going from his oldest songs to his newest!
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 ♪
An interesting piece from MrMehster here, a rock song with electronic drums, almost with a DnB feel to it. This is also his last song for a while, as he’s taking an indefinite hiatus. Best wishes for you future plans MrMehster, and thanks for the music!
Oh boy, another song about that epic episode! It really got a great reception. This track by Outside the Day is about the struggle and quest to become a dragon lord as seen in the episode, and it is quite unique, with a genre encompassing both rock structures and electronic sounds!
To start the day we present you a much unique track from PhonicB∞m, incorporating elements and instrumentations from various genres such as orchestral, rock and dubstep. Don’t judge by the sole genre in the title that was just chosen for the sake of picking one, because this track is going to surprise you! Also personally, I can’t help but getting reminded of the BGM field tracks from desert-y areas in RPGs, while listening to this. Wonderful work indeed!
A song about Friendship is always so heartwarming to get, and here we have one from two ponies who aren’t so well known in the community. Make sure to sub to their channels! (Here is Luck Rock’s upload of the collab) This track has an interesting mix between a soothing electronic mood and melodies played on instruments borrowed from rock music, as the bass and the guitar. Bliss!
Having already proved an affinity for being able to create diverse compositions, Kaoss Walker pushes that even further with this latest instrumental. The piece starts off with a very ethereal intro before diving into some pretty solid rock riffs. Lot of unheard talent in this artist.
