/Welcome to the Future /241 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 17-Mar 2023

A week off for anniversary shenanigans, and I’ve got an awful lot to catch up on. I’ll also be DJing on a livestream this week, and at a couple of events in the coming months – details to follow.

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.

22-Mar 2023 / The New Division / Modern Life / Official Artist Store
A new album from one of the best synthpop artists around.
21-Apr 2023 / ALL HANDS MAKE LIGHT / “Darling The Dawn” / Bandcamp
A new project from Ariel Engle (La Force, Patrick Watson, Broken Social Scene) and Efrim Manuel Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), and once again, it sounds a bit different to their individual work.
05-May 2023 / SQÜRL / Silver Haze / Bandcamp
Jim Jarmusch and Carter Logan, produced by Randall Dunn? Well it was never going to be normal, was it?
05-May 2023 / Therapy? / Hard Cold Fire / Official Artist Store

Searing crust-punk from this Swedish band.
02-Jun 2023 / PUPIL SLICER / BLOSSOM / Bandcamp

09-Jun 2023 / Godflesh / Purge / Official Artist Store
The industrial metal titans are back (and also headline Cold Waves in September).
09-Jun 2023 / Body of Light / Bitter Reflection / Bandcamp
Sleek, thoughtful synthpop from this Arizona duo, and even from the first track available, I can’t help feeling that there’s more fire burning through this (and a saxophone solo that works).
16-Jun 2023 / Creep Show / Yawning Abyss / Bandcamp
Mal, Benge and John Grant get back together.

/Upcoming EPs/Singles

None this week.

/Upcoming Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

/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.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week

Coming up this week will be /Tuesday Ten /520, and also on Tuesday, /TheKindaMzkYouLike /026 goes to the movies.
