Less releases this week, at least compared to the last few weeks…
The post, then, is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to upcoming events and livestreams both from this website and others, and also a catchup of what I’ve posted recently. Thanks to everyone who sends me new music and events, keeps me up to speed, and indeed simply reads these posts.
/transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has returned, continuing the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes thus far are here. The latest episode is /transmission/024, which starts on the letter P. /transmission/025 will follow soon – at last!
If you want to submit anything to be included here? E-mail me (You know what to do with that to make it work, right?), comment/message on Facebook at the amodelofcontrol.com page, and over on Twitter (@amodelofcontrol).
/Releases out today or recently
/Upcoming releases announced this week
/Album of the Week
/13-May 2022 / Primitive Man / Insurmountable EP /Bandcamp
Four tracks and thirty-eight punishing minutes pretty much counts as an album these days. The heaviest, most oppressive sludge-doom band of all are back, and it is brilliant.
/06-May 2022 / Tragic Impulse / Distant Worlds /Bandcamp
A thumping, powerful release – highly recommended electro-industrial.
/13-May 2022 / Mari Kattman / Is It Really That Bad? EP /Bandcamp
Mari Kattman releases another excellent EP, which showcases her vocal and composition skills well.
/20-May 2022 / Grant Lee Phillips / All That You Can Dream /Bandcamp
Former Grant Lee Buffalo frontman releases his latest solo album.
/05-Jun 2022 / Suicide Queen / Nymphomaniac /Bandcamp

Another long-awaited album, this doomy metal band from London are promising something special.
/05-Aug 2022 / Ayria / This Is My Battle Cry /Bandcamp
Ayria is back, harder and angrier. Lead single No One Asked You is worth a pre-order alone.
/19-Aug 2022 / SRSQ / Ever Crashing /Bandcamp
SRSQ is back, and the first tracks are transcendent, glorious electro.

Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.
/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added promptly, or be added sporadically.
If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.
Coming up this week will be /Tuesday Ten/491.
