/Welcome to the Future /226 /Events, Livestreams and new releases 21-Oct 2022

I’ve kinda settled now on bi-weekly posts for this, and it’s unlikely time will allow for much more, so that’s how it will be.

This post 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.

/Releases out today or recently

/Album of the Week
14-Oct 2022 / Protectorate / II /Bandcamp
One of the best, if not the best, industrial albums of the year.

/New Albums

07-Oct 2022 / Drumcorps / Creatures /Bandcamp
Absolutely savage breakcore/industrial/metal that passes by all-too-quickly. So just play it again.
07-Oct 2022 / Mastic Scum / ICON /Bandcamp
A new one on me: an Austrian band who clearly have a clear love of mid-90s Fear Factory…
12-Oct 2022 / The Future Sound of London / A Space of Partial Illumination E7​.​002 /Bandcamp
The ambient/electronic duo have never really stopped, but their latest work is their best in aeons.
14-Oct 2022 / The Burying Kind / Tragic Airwaves /Bandcamp
Quite wondrous shoegazey alt-rock from this Chicago duo.
21-Oct 2022 / Blockdata / Entropy /Bandcamp
I’ve featured Blockdata before, and now, he’s stepped forward with his debut album, one of technically adept electronics and thunderous drum’n’bass.
21-Oct 2022 / Gothminister / Pandemonium /EMP Store
The first new album from Gothminister in five years, and the singles are remarkably strong.
21-Oct 2022 / Rabbit Junk / Apocalypse for Beginners /Bandcamp
A snarling return from the ever-great Rabbit Junk.

/New Singles/EPs

07-Oct 2022 / Metroland / 3.0 EP /Bandcamp
The new theme isn’t totally clear yet, but Metroland are clearly counting down to something with their precise, analogue synthpop.
14-Oct 2022 / Filter / For The Beaten /YouTube
Fresh from Richard Patrick’s thrilling and unexpected reunion with Nine Inch Nails the other week, Filter have finally released the next single from their long-promised album, and it’s another industrial rock banger.
14-Oct 2022 / Boy Harsher / Burn it Down EP /Bandcamp
Boy Harsher continue their rise with a song on the latest Halloween soundtrack.

/Upcoming releases this week

04-Nov 2022 / Null Device / The Emerald Age /Bandcamp
Eric Oehler’s “main” project returns with more exceptional, exquisite synthpop (at least from what I’ve heard so far).
20-Jan 2023 / Ladytron / Time’s Arrow /Bandcamp
Ladytron announced their first new album since the last was nearly sunk by the PledgeMusic debacle, and lead single City of Angels is Ladytron to a t: cool, detached electro with some gorgeous melodies.
20-Jan 2023 / Laibach / Love Is Still Alive EP /Bandcamp
Laibach take a turn into cosmic country.
03-Feb 2023 / Young Fathers / Heavy Heavy /Bandcamp
One of the brightest lights of alternative hip-hop in the UK are back.
“Feb/Mar” 2023 / The Scarlet Hour / Warnings /Bandcamp
The Scarlet Hour were excellent at Goth City this year, and their debut album drops in the new year (date dependent on vinyl production, I believe).
24-Feb 2023 / BIG|BRAVE / nature morte /Bandcamp
The last BIG|BRAVE was a bracing, exceptional release, so bring on the new.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

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.
