Another Friday, another round-up. As always this is a look at upcoming releases, relevant music news and upcoming events and gigs worth spending some of your time at. It is by no means an exhaustive list, and I’m always on the lookout for more to include. This week this is a double dose after having to miss a week last week.

transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has resumed the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes here. The latest episode was released this week (transmission: 010).
You can also get it via RSS, on iTunes, on Stitcher, and is also now available on the new Google Podcasts App (search “amodelofcontrol”).
In a bit of a departure from my previous work, I’ll be presenting at Nine Worlds in August, looking at the links between various areas of relevant “geek culture” and music. If you’re going to be there, expect some unexpected music and discussion.
If you want to submit anything to be included here? E-mail me (You know what to do with that to make it work, right?), comment/message on Facebook at the amodelofcontrol.com page, and over on Twitter (@amodelofcontrol).
New and Upcoming Releases this week
Not too many releases this week. STFU (Dean Garcia of Curve/SPC ECO and Preston Maddox of Bloody Knives) released two albums last week – Y U M 1 and Y U M 2, and industrial rock band Nuclear*Sun released The Cleansing today.
Then there is the thundering new Ventenner single Ataxia, and I’ll be talking more about that song on Tuesday.
In future releases, Underworld and Iggy Pop release a new EP soon, while Panic Lift release End Process on 24-Aug.

The UK singles chart changes again this week, with realistic changes to streaming counts (paid accounts count for more than free accounts), and official video streams also now count. Maybe better videos might appear again, hopefully…
