/Welcome to the Future /267 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 23-Feb 2024

Life is exceptionally busy right now (moving house this weekend, in fact), so this is the first chance I’ve had to do one of these round-ups in a few weeks. In the meantime, /amodelofcontrol.com turned twenty…

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

23-Feb 2024 / Nadine Shah / Filthy Underneath / Official Artist Store
The first album from Nadine Shah in four years tackles her recent troubles head-on, and she’s perhaps never sounded better.

/New Albums

26-Jan 2024 / Knoll / As Spoken / Bandcamp
Funeral grind, I’m told – either way this album kicks ass.
26-Jan 2024 / The Infernal Sea / Hellfenlic / Bandcamp
British Black Metallers release an entire album based around Witchcraft in the British Isles, and particularly Matthew Hopkins…
09-Feb 2024 / Chelsea Wolfe / She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She / Bandcamp
The first new album from Chelsea Wolfe in some time, and it sees a notable change to an electronic-based sound – but with no less crushing heaviness.
16-Feb 2024 / IDLES / TANGK / Official Artist Store
IDLES continue their move away from the furious punk they made their name with, the new album seeing forays into dance-punk and lovelorn balladry.
16-Feb 2024 / IHSAHN / IHSAHN / Official Artist Store
Interestingly released just days before the thirtieth anniversary of the legendary Emperor debut album In The Nightside Eclipse, IHSAHN’s latest album is staggering in scope.
16-Feb 2024 / Shooting Daggers / Love & Rage / Bandcamp
Fascinating “Queercore Punk” that comes laden with ripping tracks (particularly the ninety-second hurricane Wipeout).
16-Feb 2024 / Zanias / Ecdysis / Bandcamp
Zanias follows up last year’s excellent album with an interestingly downbeat counterpart.
23-Feb 2024 / Sleepytime Gorilla Museum / of the Last Human Being / Bandcamp
Seventeen years on, and the maddest of art-metal bands is back.
23-Feb 2024 / The Body & Dis Fig / Orchards of a Futile Heaven / Bandcamp

23-Feb 2024 / The Tiger Lillies / Lessons In Nihilism / Official Artist Store
The Soho house band continue their explorations of the underworld.

/New Singles/EPs

02-Feb 2024 / Autumns / Take The Bait / Bandcamp
Groovy darkwave with some interestingly pointed song-titles.
02-Feb 2024 / The Human Element / The Angels Have All Gone Insane / Bandcamp
A notable release that works in part as a fundraiser for the hell Matthew Lee Clark (The Joy Thieves) has gone through.
18-Feb 2024 / Madil Hardis / Reverie / Bandcamp
A vanishingly brief, experimental EP (it’s literally six minutes long) whose songs feel like sketches for something bigger.
19-Feb 2024 / Imminent / Mythrality / Bandcamp
Olivier Moreau releases, at last, new Imminent material.
19-Feb 2024 / _the boundless_ / Step Up / Bandcamp
This artist out of Chicago has looked back to the nineties, with sample-laden, dancefloor-friendly grooves – this EP is fantastic.
20-Feb 2024 / clipping. / Cooling Prongs / Tipsy b/w Midnight / Bandcamp
Clipping. take on J-Kwon’s fun hit Tipsy, alongside some dark ambient nightmares from Cooling Prongs.

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.
