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.

New and Upcoming Releases this week
A few notable releases in the past week or so: including John Grant’s fourth solo album Love is Magic, and the unexpected return of Dubstar with One.
Also of note is a Cabaret Voltaire tribute album from Metropolis, marvellously titled Why Kill Time When You Can Cover Cabaret Voltaire.
New tracks this past week or so include the return of Borghesia with Ljubljana spi – the album Proti kapitulaciji is out next week (23-October) – while the excellent post-punk band Ganser have released a new single Pastel, and grind band The Atrocity Exhibit have released The Bitter Aftertaste of Exploitation.
In upcoming release news, The Young Gods are back with a new album in the New Year – interestingly they’ve been working with Alan Moulder. That said, I’ll be surprised if we hear any new material next week at Black Celebration, but you never know…
In addition, new Rammstein material looks finally to be on the horizon, as does two new album from My Bloody Valentine (although I’ll believe the latter when I see it).
Confirmed upcoming releases are the comeback, eponymous new album from Ladytron (15-Feb), and a vinyl re-issue of Fucked-Up Inside, one of the two essential Spiritualized live albums of the past.

The new Tomorrow’s Ghosts event at Whitby has a hell of a pair of headliners in April – the Poppies and New Model Army.
On Vice last week – the return to the public eye (ish) of Katie Jane Garside.
Finally, interesting questions, perhaps, around how Spotify is affecting music consumption, and apparently an awful lot of people still “illegally” download music. Perhaps if they put more back-catalogue stuff back online…
