A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: BRANDI CARLILE “RIGHT ON TIME” What a pleasure to hear a full-bodied, rich-like-wine voice blasting out of the rafters. Carlile can sing, anyone who has been following her knows that, but in this song, she really hits her stride.

In the case of The War on Drugs (aka TWOD), it is clearly the latter. The song “I Don’t Live Here Anymore”, their 5th album, … Continue reading This Week In Music – 30th September 2021

This Week In Music 23rd September 2021

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: SAULT How can you love a band when you don’t even know who they are? SAULT, a semi-anonymous UK collective – have been making their mark with four albums in the space of two years. Randomly releasing the works, unwilling to talk about their art, they have become a new force on the UK scene, earning a Mercury Prize nod in 2021. Nine, their fifth album, was available to buy and stream for only 99 days until … Continue reading This Week In Music 23rd September 2021
