/Welcome to the Future /268 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 22-Mar 2024

A seriously busy month – moving house does that to you – has meant I’ve got four weeks of releases and new release announcements to catch up on.

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.

Grant channels Grace Jones in taut electronics on the new single, and if the album is anywhere near as good, it should be fascinating.
21-Jun 2024 / earthtone9 / In Resonance Nexus / Official Artist Store
A very unexpected return – I had understood et9 had hinted at stopping again – sees one of the more underappreciated British metal bands roaring back.

More after-dark, low-key songs about sex.
30-Aug 2024 / Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Wild God / Official Artist Store

Probably one of Laibach finest – and certainly most iconic – albums gets a lavish reissue and remaster.

/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.
