After the last couple of weeks – including Welcome to the Future: 066, where I wrapped up the new music coming your way in 2019, this week it is back to “normal” with the wrap-up of new music this week, and then also the usual round-up

Over the past month I’ve run through the best of 2018 in my Countdown series, you can find the links to these posts at the bottom of this post.

transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – had begun the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes here. The latest episode was released a few months ago (transmission: 012). transmission: 013 will be out as soon as I have the time to rebuild the whole damned thing…

You can also get it via RSS, on iTunes, on Stitcher, and is also now available on the new Google Podcasts App (search “amodelofcontrol”).

New and Upcoming Releases this week

It’s been a while, but The Twilight Sad return today with their new album It Won/t Be Like This All The Time. While London band Khaidian release Penumbra today, too.

Metropolis in the US are busy this week, with new releases from Dawn of Ashes (The Crypt Injection II (Non Serviam)) and Hante. (Fierce), as well as She Past Away re-issues in the form of Narin Yalnizlik and Belirdi Gece.

Mute are continuing their 40th anniversary celebrations with an intriguing looking compilation coming – with label bands taking on 4’33”. As you do…

While LCD Soundsystem are releasing Electric Lady Sessions next month, and I have to confess that I didn’t realise In Flames were still going.

Other Music News

I should have mentioned this last week, but a notable change is that Ant-Zen go digital-only next month.

While one notable hiatus is Katatonia, I can only hope they return.

Two notable reformations – Bikini Kill have unexpectedly announced dates in the US, while another early-nineties band I love are also returning, in the form of Jawbox.
