This Week In Music: 29th September 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: BETH ORTON What a voice. To say that it defined a decade, specifically the 90s, is an understatement. Her seminal LPs, Central Reservation and Trailer Park, chilled their way out of every cafe and restaurant sound system from LA to Chang Mai. Aside from her icy cool and slightly pitchy delivery, there was just a hint, ever so slight but still audible, of sexuality. Was that her secret weapon and was she aware of it? Maybe, but … Continue reading This Week In Music: 29th September 2022

This Week In Music: 23rd September 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: PIP MILLETT “Heavenly” What kind of music would Sade be making in 2022? UK neo-soul songstress Pip Millet might be a close fit. Slightly harder beat and harder lyrics, but still peanut butter smooth. Like the 80s Queen of Smooth, Pip Millet does not have the biggest pipes, but she is not trying to compete against her multi-octave female contemporaries. Instead, she has carved out a subtle, staccato sound where she weaves in and around the backing track, … Continue reading This Week In Music: 23rd September 2022

This Week In Music: 15th September 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: LANA LUBANY “SOLD” When cultures clash you sometimes achieve alchemy. In this case, rising star Lana Lubany blends her Palestinian-American heritage to perfection, swapping Arabic and English in the same song to create an alluring and original sound. It would be unfair to label Lubany a TikTok star, but the platform was responsible for igniting her career when her mother’s reaction to Snake, the first track she had ever sung in both Arabic and English, went viral. … Continue reading This Week In Music: 15th September 2022

This Week In Music – 8th September 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: LIVING HOUR “MISS MISS MISS” Does living in one of the coldest places on the planet make you more or less chill? Winnipeg band, Living Hour, is staking its claim to be just that with its third LP Someday is Today. Composed of 11 songs, the album finds the band at its most pensive and longing, with its vulnerable lyrics brought to life through lush instrumentation and rudimentary electronica. According to the band’s label, Kanine Records, the project was … Continue reading This Week In Music – 8th September 2022

This Week In Music – 26th July 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: FOUNTAINES D.C. Who said guitar bands were dead? Not this lot. Fontaines D.C., an Irish post-punk band formed in Dublin in 2017 straight out of music school, describes its third outing, Skinty Fia, as an “album of necessity”. I am not sure exactly what that means, but I will take a crack at it. I think the songs have evolved into that level of songwriting where the band members are channeling whatever demons they have inside without much control over the … Continue reading This Week In Music – 26th July 2022
