In the same vein as his previous track Somnambula, this new release from 174UDSI (who seems to have switched his name to Yellow Tune) brings those arabic musical vibes once more in this track blending worlds! Its theme is apparently quite wide and may include many forms of Egyptian-themed ponies in the show or fanart!
In a heartfelt tribute to Derpy, The Wonderbolts spin a tale of the bubbly mare’s struggle and strife in What Went Wrong. What sets this Derpy song apart from many others is the abrasive reality portrayed through a bittersweet plea for understanding, characterized by the rugged instrumental and powerful vocals. One of the most curious defining traits of the song is the overall saturated and analog sounding mix that is present throughout, particularly during the loudest sections, evoking a sense of of looking into the past as well as considering the future of one of the fandom’s most beloved characters. This song is truly a monolith to the fandom, accompanied by art from ExclusionZone.
Here we are with the first single from Ephemeral II: Parallels. Right from the opening seconds this song captivated me with its foreboding atmosphere and intriguing instrumentation. There is A LOT going on here from complex melodies to intricate and subtle percussive elements. The Oblivion Highway is a journey to our past across the the land of memories. You can feel the mood progress throughout as we visit some of life’s more pleasant memories, our vivid recollections, times of joy, and times we wish to forget. The album releases on May 1, 2019 and if you like intricate story telling through song, this is the album for you!
A new wonderful OST-like field theme for a location from the official comics following Heart of Thicket, The Riches of Abyssinia from Chiptune Brony is mysterious and magical, bringing much emotion in a special way with those melodies and instruments, reminiscent of field BGMs when exploring places in games. A gem for sure!
As mysterious as it is curiously gorgeous, Heart of Thicket is the conception of Chiptune Brony, the resident jack-of-all-trades composer who hails from Oregon. The composition brings the audience in with ethereal and uncertain soundscapes, later woven into a World soundtrack of sorts. It is very reminiscent of many film soundtracks from the 80’s and 90’s, creating a familiar yet peculiar and exotic set of tones and melodies.
Mane In Green’s masterpiece from Ponies at Dawn Enigma is a real delight bringing much emotion as you imagine the ponies’ journey and all the sights they behold and the adventures they’re having! Our beloved musician’s talent shines so much in this, with a stunning progression and many parts each having their own mood and fitting to a certain part of the journey. A magical experience!
From the Ponies at Dawn charity album, Recollections, Einarx has given us a reprise of Guardian. Unlike their VIP of the song back in 2017, this takes everything from before and flips it on its head! All in all we’ve been given a very soothing turn from the hard hitters of yesteryear, with a heavily ethnic feel mixed with subtle electronic elements and a foreboding atmosphere that will instantly take you on an ethereal journey from the Far-East!
From the recent A State of Sugar: Ice Cream album Mehster brings us “Holi” and a bright and vibrant festival of colours it is! Psytrance is always an interesting bout of fun and there is a healthy dose of variation that even pull from various genres throughout to truly bring out a festival like feel in the song. One thing I have to note especially are the vocals. They bring a sense of life into the fold and overall, this song has something for everyone! 🙂
Saffron Showers is the OC shown in the video and is the mascot of Project Saffron and is a community effort by SEAPonyCon to help reach out to the bronies of India and to get them more involved as well as share what we love as well! If you’re interested in getting involved you should check it out!
Folk music is something that I don’t often see from the fandom, but its always something to cherish when it surfaces. ‘Good Night’ evokes a haunting melancholic mood and tells a tale of the two sisters, from Luna’s perspective as she waits out her isolation on the moon. Its a very soothing piece with Velvet R. Wings‘ signature vocals and some stellar and crisp instrumentation and if you have the time, you should really lend them your ear.
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Enigma!
