SoGreatandPowerful + And The Rainfall : Rarity
Let me just catch my breath for a bit. I can’t breathe too well due to all this anticipation.
Work on this song began in late February, 2012. SGaP and I worked very hard on it, and pushed for it to be finished around the time Tsyolin’s, Facexplodie’s and Psych Brony’s collabs were released. Real life struck around May, and we were unable to, so we were left with an almost finished song, all 7 minutes of it. By the time we were both able to work with each other again, SGaP was in the middle of his S2 streak, and I was preoccupied with running Sori5Twerk and building antennas, so the song remained in the backburner for the longest time. We didn’t really feel the drive to add any more to it, but I still thought it’d be a shame to let this song sit around, so after Sori52 was done I asked SGaP to let me polish what we’d done thus far and release it. Fourteen months later after setting out to make a song, we’re finally seeing it to an end today.
I don’t think I’ve ever participated in a collab that feels like a collab as much as this one. Our contributions completely blend into each other. There was no division of labour, we both contributed significant amounts to everything, which is probably why it turned out long and sparse.
Crossing paths with SGaP has been one of the most significant things to happen to me in the past couple of years. I feel fortunate to be able to call him a friend, and share so much with him. Working with him is completely unreal, and definitely something that influenced all of my productions since then. Interacting with him is something that still influences my daily life. Figuring out the kinks and coordinating our efforts was a formidable challenge in and of itself, and it’s ultimately rewarding. I’ve learned so much from this, and I can’t thank him enough for so many late night discussions, all the laughs, and why not, all the bickering too. It’s all priceless.
A lot happened during those 14 months, both musically and in my life. This song was a relative constant throughout this, so its release is a momentous event for me. It feels like finishing a scrapbook and looking through it after working on it. I really hope people will find something to enjoy here.
So thanks SGaP, for giving me the chance to work with you and get close to you. You still stink of ravioli tho, so imma not get too close thank you very much. :J
After a year and a half of waiting, I present to you all “Life As We Know It (feat. Odyssey).
Out on OWSLA’s “The Nest” on April 31, 2013.
Thanks for believing in me guys. I couldn’t have done this without you. <3
Album Release: Disharmony, by Le Soldat Pony
Ok, lemme just take a moment to plug one of my hands down favourite artists of all time. Like, not just in the brony community, of all time: Le Soldat Pony.
Some might have heard of the folky spirit of his songs, and his soulful voice, through his submission for the Faithful and Strong charity album, or from the rest of the songs in his youtube channel. He’s got a sensibility for arrangements that stir up so many feels, it’s just amazing.
And yet, now he’s coming up with an album that doesn’t have much to do with the above. I guess the closest comparison one would be able to make with another band in regards to sound would be Gorillaz, but it’s so much more than that. It’s still got the same sensibility for arrangements, but geared towards a grittier sound that makes for a bangin’ album.
It’s not free, but all proceeds go towards Your Siblings, which means your dough is going to help people out.
Give it a listen and spread the word!
The whole of this album is just an amazing piece of music and style. Definitely go and give it a listen.
Reblogging because really, just check this out ok.
