A brand new Full Flavor-like tune has surfaced in the community! Light Assassin does us the honor of bringing the legendary genre back and it is certainly impressive to get such a blend of tempos in a savory cocktail of sound, showcasing Light Assassin’s proficiency and creativity. For those who don’t remember, Full Flavor was made popular by Karetus’ eponymous track, and it was shortly followed on in the community by Trinity and Nexaka’s Poison Joke that also got posted on Cider Party!
Another of the new shining gems from the just-released compilation album from Ponyville Ciderfest, this VIP of loophoof’s iconic Would Stay does wonders at bringing back those happy and emotional Twilight vibes from the original, while adding new samples in the mix and delivering a new arrangement full of awesome ideas making it very refined. It’s sparkling like Twilight!
BlueBrony has always excelled at making songs in ways no one else could think, while maintaining a very high quality to the track – in any genre! Featured on the most recent Ponies at Dawn release, Enigma, BlueBrony manages to standout among the fandom’s best of the best with Imperfection. The chord progression and choices are perfect, controlling emotion as it swings between anguish, confused, and hopeful. The song is a narrative from Sweetie Bot’s point of view and despite being about a robot, is perhaps one of the most relatable songs this fandom has produced. The vocals sings of how Sweetie Bot wants her programming reset and memories flushed because it does not work correctly; her circuits and functionality creating limitations she feels the need to exceed. This masterpiece is beautiful, touching, and guaranteed to move you – just try to listen without tearing up!
A brand new charity compilation album appeared in honor of the upcoming music festival & con Ponyville Ciderfest, and we’re kicking it off with a fresh round of cider! One of the new pony songs from the album made for the occasion, TCB‘s Dubstep banger is themed around the recent S8 finale and delivers such insane sound design along mad Cozy Glow samples. Beware of that pony!
Part of a new upcoming concept album, “The New Form”, Annexation is a delightful Ambient song that really sets an incredible atmosphere with those deep synths and also hoofsteps. Icing on the cake, the electronic experimental/psychedelic synths near the end are reminding me of early electronic music pioneers such as Klaus Schulze, and it’s a real bliss! Read about the story of this track from the description of FilledSilhoutte’s upload, and get hype for the impending release of the album!
Reverbrony’s newest piece does fit those epic vibes from Applejack’s look in that artwork, with over 5 minutes of heavy riffs and mad drums play. The lead guitar solo near the end is the peak of the song, bringing that Outlaw legacy and amping it to the loudest!
One of the many gems from Ponies at Dawn Enigma that are filled with much emotion, Flipside is a collab that sparkles with the talents of bank pain, PegasYs and Flittzy for a stunning story-driven track with both an expert composition and crazy sound design. Flittzy’s soothing vocals are narrating the story filled with mysteries, and under Luna’s watch, we linger in bliss as the story and divine sounds unfold in a surge of emotion.
Experienced producers sure can release new songs at a stunning speed, and Etherium Apex uses the inextinguishable inspiration from the show to pay yet another tribute to it in musical ways! And this new song is a favorite of mine as it responds to that memorable scene and adorable Trixie x Starlight moment! Yes Trixie you’re so amazing ❤ And Etherium certainly gives lots of praise to our beloved blue pony with a new Complextro arrangement and composition, making awesome use of the ponies’ voices! And it’s even got cool vocal chopping, emphasizing on Trixie’s teacup madness! A real treat! Well done Trix!
Another track from AstralAmity’s upcoming magnum opus album, For Harmony is a beautiful collab with Sable Symphony that not only has his unique vocals adding much personality to the track, but also has electric guitars and makes for a very creative fusion of electronic, rock, and orchestral elements. The choruses in particular are very emotional for me, and with Sable’s vocals it makes it even more powerful.
F 109’s newest piece is full of those experimental delights that we love to see from the musician, and it’s so interesting to get his take on Sunshower Raindrops’ character. Haunting yet enthralling, the track is a blissful journey into the unknown!
