Back into the swing of things now, with various new and upcoming releases now in the can for 2024.

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

12-Jan 2024 / Marika Hackman / Big Sigh / Official Artist Store
After a devastating spell of writer’s block, Marika Hackman returns with her first album of new material in nearly five years. It’s a darker release than previously, dealing with breakups, lust, and anxiety.

/New Albums

08-Dec 2023 / Caustic Grip / Beneath the Skin / Bandcamp
I missed this one before Christmas: a cracking new EP from this EBM artist.
10-Jan 2024 / I.X.XI / Not Enough to Survive / Bandcamp
A striking, deeply personal album about grief and loss.
12-Jan 2024 / The Violent Youth / Na Igle / Bandcamp
Punchy, upbeat post-punk from this new (to me!) band.
19-Jan 2024 / SINE / Luxuria / Bandcamp
Intriguing new industrial, produced by Claus Larsen, that leans heavily into sultry trip-hop.
19-Jan 2024 / yelworC / The Ghosts I Called / Bandcamp
Not gonna lie, wasn’t expecting a new yelworC album in 2024…

/New Singles/EPs

05-Jan 2024 / Riotmiloo / folie à deux / Bandcamp
Following on from recent album Blackout, this single includes some intriguing remixes.
12-Jan 2024 / Dread Risks / Extinction Form (Drumcorps Remix) / Bandcamp
Drumcorps remixing Dread Risks is a wild ride.
15-Jan 2024 / defrag / Lost Seas / Bandcamp
Part of a fascinating EP series, this long-running project continues with elegant, precise electronics that makes for a satisfying whole.
15-Jan 2024 / Sapphira Vee / Stand Together / Bandcamp
A laudable aim – togetherness to fight for what’s right, to make voices louder and stronger – and a cracking dancefloor track results.
16-Jan 2024 / Rotersand / 16 Devils / Bandcamp
Twenty years and more in, Rotersand still deliver top-level electro-industrial.
19-Jan 2024 / Cold In Berlin / The Body Is The Wound / Bandcamp
Cold In Berlin take another turn to evolve their style, and I like this a lot.
19-Jan 2024 / Lovelorn DollsBeautiful Chaos / Bandcamp
Belgian goth-rock that in some respects, reminds of The Birthday Massacre of old.

/New Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

05-Jan 2024 / Lana Del Rabies / Becoming Everything: STREGA BEATA Remixed / Bandcamp
I still don’t how I missed the main album at the time – especially after the scorching live show at Cold Waves – but this remix album is just as devastating as the album.
19-Jan 2024 / x KMFDM / SIN SEX & SALVATION (DELUXE) / Bandcamp
At last released after thirty years, this legendary collaboration has been remastered and expanded.
19-Jan 2024 / Various Artists / Control I’m Here: Adventures On The Industrial Dance Floor 1983-1990 / Official Label Store
There are a lot of goth compilations from this era, but less covering industrial – and Cherry Red have fixed that for us.

/Upcoming Releases

/Upcoming Albums

02-Feb 2024 / Jean-Marc Lederman / Sci-Fi Revisited / Bandcamp
Sci-fi stories, electronic music, even puzzles…
16-Feb 2024 / Zanias / Ecdysis / Bandcamp
A companion release to last year’s album.
01-Mar 2024 / Ben Frost / Scope Neglect / Bandcamp
The first Ben Frost album in some years, and he’s using metallic elements this time – but I suspect that we shouldn’t be expecting a full-on metal album!
08-Mar 2024 / Midas Fall / Cold Waves Divide Us / Official Label Store
Scottish post-rock/prog band with their latest album.
15-Mar 2024 / Alison Cotton / Engelchen / Bandcamp
Alison Cotton pays tribute to Ida and Louise Cook on her new album.
12-Apr 2024 / Sleepmakeswaves / It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It / Bandcamp

19-Apr 2024 / BIG|BRAVE / A Chaos of Flowers / Bandcamp
Their remarkable last album featured in my end-of-year lists recently, and they are already back with another…

/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.
