This week’s wrap of new and upcoming music.

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

19-Apr 2024 / ULTRA SUNN / US / Bandcamp
I cannot get enough of this. Think late-80s, leather-clad Depeche Mode in their pomp, if they were playing thumping EBM in a dingy basement. I mean that as the sincerest compliment as this album is fantastic.

A fascinating team-up between two of the most interesting artists in ritual/experimental projects with a deep, thoughtful concept.

/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.
