/Welcome to the Future /247 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 19-May 2023

Another Friday, another roundup. I’ve begun catching up on upcoming events (a host were added this week, with more to come), and as always there are more new releases this week.

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

/Release of the Week

19-May 2023 / Mandy, Indiana / I’ve seen a way / Bandcamp
One of the most thrilling UK bands around at the moment release their bracing debut album, somewhere between electronic and industrial experimentation, found sounds and fierce noise rock.

/New Albums

16-May 2023 / Tombstones In Their Eyes / Sea of Sorrow / Bandcamp
Lovely, sun-drenched psych-rock from the US.

Out of absolutely nowhere, the imposing, filthy doom lords return.
19-May 2023 / Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan / The Nation’s Most Central Location / Bandcamp
I termed this artist brutalist ambient when I first heard them, and I stick by that – even if there is a snarling political edge to the new release.

The German post-metal collective return.

/New Singles/EPs

None this week.

/New Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

Athan Maroulis continues his NOIR project with an excellent, long-promised new EP.

None this week.

/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
