/Welcome to the Future /259 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 20-Oct 2023

We’re nearing the end of the year, which means I’m now considering the best of 2023, and releases for the new year are now beginning to filter through too,.

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

20-Oct 2023 / Reverend Kristin Michael Hayter / SAVED! / Bandcamp
Kristin Hayter ended the LINGUA IGNOTA project with some extraordinary shows in London last week (I was at the first of those), and this new project is a rebirth, complete with the pains that entails. It is different – delving into spiritual rebirth and gospel spirituals, but it makes no bones about how difficult rebirth can be (the multi-tracked vocals on HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING is like being dragged into hell), and thus it is a bracing, extraordinary listen.

/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.
