/Welcome to the Future /249 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 09-Jun 2023

Lots of new albums this week, and not so many upcoming releases.

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
09-Jun 2023 / Godflesh / PURGE / Official Artist Store
Godflesh are back, and PURGE hits you like a bulldozer – this is taking the ideas of PURE, but with upgraded weaponry.

/New Albums

02-Jun 2023 / Myrkur / Ragnarok (Original Soundtrack) / Bandcamp
Myrkur’s new album dropped at last a week ago – pretty much unheralded – and it is a soundtrack to a Royal Danish Theatre work.
02-Jun 2023 / The Saxophones / To Be A Cloud / Bandcamp
The mellowed out bliss of The Saxophones is a welcome salve on a hot day, and it’s great to hear them again.
09-Jun 2023 / Dream Wife / Social Lubrication / Bandcamp
It’s a very short album, but what it is, is top-class, snarling Riot Grrrl.
09-Jun 2023 / Janelle Monáe / The Age of Pleasure / Official Artist Store
Gone are the sci-fi themes, swept away in a tidal wave of queer, poly pleasure-seeking. We’re not complaining.
09-Jun 2023 / Odonis Odonis / ICON / Bandcamp
One of the best of the new breed of industrial-adjacent artists releases a fascinating – and really quite varied – collaboration album.

/New Singles/EPs

09-Jun 2023 / Comfort Cure / Design International / Bandcamp
A storming new EBM release.

/New Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

09-Jun 2023 / Rammstein / Sehnsucht (Anniversary Edition) / Official Artist Store
The rather unsavoury allegations that have surfaced in the past week or so have rather overshadowed this much-needed remaster (and so they should, too).

/Upcoming Releases

/Upcoming Albums

None this week.

/Upcoming EPs/Singles

25-Aug 2023 / Drab Majesty / An Object In Motion / Bandcamp
Drab Majesty returns at last with an intriguing sounding new EP, and the first track from it is subdued and fascinating.

/Upcoming Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

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

Coming up next week will be /Tuesday Ten /529, there’ll be no posts for the next week as I take a short break.
