• Album Compilation - April - And New Album Submissions Rules!


    Wow, it has been a long time since we last did an album post! It has been sort of a mess here on that front. Since we have always focused on specific songs, getting an entire album passed through is a challenge to say the least.

    We still have quite a few coming in though, so lets set some ground rules on how they should be submitted to make it easier on everyone.

    In this post, we have 11 new albums from across the fandom, and a quick guide on getting yours added to the album compilations as we move forward.

    Now go get all that below!



    Want to submit an album? Hit the rules up at the bottom!


    Resurfaced Pony Beats
    Artist: [voodoopony]
    General Genre: Electronic


    Description: It's what all the signs have been pointing toward. It's the album no one's been waiting for, but everyone must own. This Pony album is a collection of demos from 2011 until now, showcasing the best of all my unreleased stuff. Like it? Help my cause by sharing it around! Don't like it? Download it anyway so you can feed your insane rants about how garbage you think this album is! Nonetheless, get yourself a copy so I won't feel like all my work is for nothing, then I might just go cry my eyes out and OD on cheezits. You wouldn't want to put me through that, would you? Download now.


    Ponies at Dawn: The Remixes
    Artist: Various Artists
    General Genre: Electronic


    Description: Tis the season, and Ponies at Dawn are in a giving mood! Here with their 4th album, a compilation of remixes of some of the most popular songs of our albums past! With great tracks from artists such as EnsionD, LutariFan and Astral Nova, it's sure to keep your party alive!


    The Rarijack Album
    Artist: Maressey (various)
    Genre: Mixed



    Description: I hope you enjoy the first of hopefully 4 Maressey albums. As you should know Maressey is a Ponified Tribute to the Music of The Smiths. Without them creating the original tracks this tribute or the music contained would not be possible. Their exploration of loneliness, sex, gender, love, and loss I felt could be translated into our own fimfiction of these characters and comment on ourselves. We did try to do something a bit different with this tribute and that is to find an MLP theme in each album (within this story of Rarijack) and the next, with albums that tell an interwoven storyline in each.

    I have to thank quite a few people who have made an idea 2+ years ago into a realized 20+ person group project. Thanks to the wonderful people below who have helped throughout this project. They are all such incredibly talented and wonderful musicians and they have made this project all possible. I hope that people continue to support this project and those many musicians and artists involved.”~Freewave
