/Welcome to the Future /236 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 03-Feb 2023

Bandcamp Friday seems to get crazier by the month – I’ve had a flood of emails from pretty much every artist or label I’ve ever bought from today, it seems.

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

/New Albums

27-Jan 2023 / Sightless Pit / Lockstep Bloodwar / Bandcamp
One of The Body, and one of Full of Hell, making a brutally heavy dub-based album.
03-Feb 2023 / Liebknecht / Fabrikat / Bandcamp
Daniel Myer and Rinaldo Bite are back with more top-quality industrial techno.
03-Feb 2023 / Microwaved / The Dead Shall Walk / Bandcamp
A host of guest vocalists join Microwaved for an industrial album that leans into industrial rock and hip-hop with fascinating results.
03-Feb 2023 / Young Fathers / Heavy Heavy / Bandcamp
The fascinating, genre-defying work of Edinburgh-based Young Fathers, their first new album in five years.

/New Singles/EPs

20-Jan 2023 / They Speak in Tongues of Black Fire / Into The Burning Trees / Bandcamp
Ritualistic synthwave from Richard Ricochet.
25-Jan 2023 / LOCKS / NOLA / Bandcamp
The quite wonderful LOCKS return with their first new material since before the pandemic.
27-Jan 2023 / BRUIT≤ / Apologie du Temps Perdu Vol. 1 / Bandcamp
BRUIT≤ turned a lot of heads with their outstanding debut album. This new EP dials back the intense post-rock for near ambient explorations, before they get into album number two.
30-Jan 2023 / Doors In The Labyrinth / In Memoriam / Bandcamp
An intriguing release, that pays tribute to musicians we’ve lost.
03-Feb 2023 / SØLVE / The Dark & The Wicked EP / Bandcamp
An excellent, mostly instrumental EP from Brant Showers, that feels like it is Showers returning to the roots of his sound with impressive results.
03-Feb 2023 / Teeth of the Sea / Vortex of Release / Bandcamp
The first new music from Teeth of the Sea in some time is a non-album single (a new album to come later in the year), spun off from their Apollo’s Moon Shot score work, but very much it’s own thing. A stomping, dramatic monster of a track, it bodes well for what’s to come…
03-Feb 2023 / Promenade Cinema / Dark Designs / Bandcamp
This most excellent synthpop duo return with a new four-track EP (with four remixes, and four instrumentals, added on).
03-Feb 2023 / Dead Blood Cells / Unlocked / Bandcamp
A new remix EP that offers perspectives on recent single Locked Away – worth it alone for the fantastic Brutalist Architecture In The Sun reworking.
03-Feb 2023 / The Anchoress / This Is Yesterday / Bandcamp
A quite lovely cover of a stone-cold Manics classic, from a lifelong Manics fan.

/New Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

27-Jan 2023 / Choke Chain / The EPs of CC / Bandcamp
For those only recently catching up, a compilation of earlier Choke Chain material.

/Upcoming Albums

10-Mar 2023 / Delerium / Signs / Bandcamp
Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber – along with vocal collaborators – return to Delerium for the first time in a while.
25-Mar 2023 / Metroland / 0 / Bandcamp
Metroland finally confirm their new album, whose electronic forays take the Fourth Industrial Revolution as their starting concept.

/Upcoming EPs/Singles

None this week

/Upcoming Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

24-Mar 2023 / Grant Lee Buffalo / Fuzzy / Rough Trade
24-Mar 2023 / Grant Lee Buffalo / Mighty Joe Moon / Rough Trade
I only knew these were coming thanks to Grant Lee Phillips mentioning them at last weeks’ excellent gig – the first two, much-loved, GLB albums on vinyl again at last.
31-Mar 2023 / Meshuggah / ObZen / Official Band Store
Apparently a sonically rebuilt new take on this excellent album.

/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.
