I heard a call for AJ and something from Grennadder so how about an AJ by Grennadder? Don't stay in the rain too long AJ, you'll catch cold.
Back to our usual Roundup schedule guys! Exams are done so they shouldn't be forgotten or late hopefully.
Let's try that whole "keep the comments on topic" thing again with this one. I have faith in you guys. Give these musicians a bit if feedback will yah?
I actually saw a lot of people asking us to list the songs/musicians up here during the discussion earlier, which we considered doing early on. I think they will all get a bit more love if they can "sell" it with the art covers they use for said music though. Having just a tiny bit of visual helps a lot for some people, even if they don't realize it at the time. It might be something to revisit in the future though.
And as a reminder for everyone that submits music to EQD: Please include a genre, and if it is a remix, vocal, or instrumental track. These are blank if nothing is included.
This one wasn't too surprising. Was there any ever doubt that the MLP series was rockin the comic world? Honestly if the last few pirate focused ones are any indication, it's far from just another kid's comic.
Comics Alliance did a short writeup to go along with their award for Best in-your-face to opponents of all ages. Head on over here to give it a read!
Thanks to Cheezee for the heads up. Your name makes me want pizza.
Lots of great feedback from that music post earlier. Lets start with one little thing while the rest is processed: keep the comments on topic. Off topic will be deleted.
And give some feedback if you do give them a listen!
Anyway, we start off with a new one from 4everfreebrony collabbin with Giggly Maria in what reminds me of something from Owl City, followed by some instrumental orchestral rock from Das Deer dedicated to the palace of the two sisters. Get both below!
1.) 4everfreebrony - Flutter (ft. Giggly Maria)
2.) DasDeer - The Alicorn Palace of the Two Royal Pony Sisters
And today our runner-up was from Chiweee, with a little Scootalove piece called "Like A Family". You know, I really do wish we had enough prizes for everyone, there have been so many stellar entries, but there can be only two winners!
Join us after the break for the winners of the third day of the Hearth's Warming Microcomic Giveaway!
As some of you know, I am a huge Papers, Please fan so when I heard Tiarawhy was making a pony animation based on it I was pretty psyched! Check on after the break for the full thing and if you haven't played Papers, Please yet make sure to do so. You won't regret it.

Music Discussion: Have you Burnt out on the New Wave of Fandom Pony Music? What do You Want to See Improved on EQD and Overall?by Sethisto
Music has always been a relatively large part of the fandom, but it is also one of the most unstable and constantly changing mediums around. The majority of pony music these days is original thanks to 9 months of no official stuff, and as a whole, it seems like if the musician producing it isn't already well known, no amount of spotlighting even here on EQD or anywhere else will get them a massive amount of love a lot of these tracks deserve. Just talking to people within my own circles and at conventions, it seems like a good amount gave up on it unless it dings one of their Youtube subs, or they recognize the name of someone famous here in a spotlight post.
I'm here to ask all of you fandom goers, be you a pony music listener/enthusiast who burnt out a year ago, to a new person just now breaking into and producing their own a few questions, and hopefully figure out some improvements we can roll out here on EQD in the process. Maybe those out there producing the current generation of music can also use it to help better understand what the audience of listeners is looking for.
With season 4 in full swing, and the inevitable first major official song release on the horizon (along with flood of remixes of said song), it's probably a good time to get some things squared away! Head on down below the break for everything, and use those comments below to answer stuff.
Time to go support those musicians, and fill up those playlists. We have a boatload of albums this month from just about any genre you can think of (alright maybe not any genre). Have some titles and composers:
- Sands of Time - Cyril the Wolf
- De Remicks: Vol. 2 - General Mumble
- d.notive - Cartoon Horse Adventures OST
- Moonlight Vapours - Ponies at Dawn
- Gak Attack Vol. 1 - Gak Attack Records
- Elements of the Musical Equine - Tiethepony
