Friday, the end of another week – so let’s look at things to distract us, either by way of new music or events to consider. This is the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up, of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover here.

/This Week/New Releases
KMFDM return today with the excellent new album PARADISE, and you can read more about it in my interview with Sascha K on Talk Show Host/057. Also returning and resolutely pushing forward are 65daysofstatic, whose highly experimental Replicr, 2019 takes them to new dimensions even by their standards.
One unexpected return – after a long time dormant, unsurprisingly perhaps after the death of Charlie Cooper – is of Telefon Tel Aviv, now just the work of Josh Eustis. The new album is Dreams Are Not Enough. Also out today is the new album by RROYCE, Patience.
The outstanding Slighter track Give Me (featuring Craig Huxtable from OHMelectronic) gets a full single release today, and Exclude/Divide – a similarly standout track from Randolph & Mortimer’s recent album Manifesto for a Modern World – also gets a full single release.
Oh, and just in case you ever needed to hear The Hoff covering Lords of the New Church, Echo & The Bunnymen, Bowie and more (with assistance from members of The Stooges, Ministry and others), that’s out today too.
/This Week/Upcoming Releases
After the comparative drought last week, there’s lots to talk about this week.
An unexpected new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album Ghosteen is out next week, and Chicago post-punks (and long-time favourites of this ‘site) Ganser release EP You Must Be New Here on 08-November. Expect coverage of lead single Buio on /Tuesday Ten/384 next week. Then there is also a new Bestial Mouths EP, INSHROUDSS two weeks before Ganser.
As might be expected for an artist of his stature, the first posthumous Leonard Cohen album is coming. Entitled Thanks for the Dance, it at least appears to have been partly planned by Cohen himself anyway, and has an army of collaborators on it. See also this intriguing read about it on the NME.
While in the “details to be confirmed” camp, might there finally be new Fiona Apple material on the horizon, at long last? While New Misery Loves Co. have teased a release on 29-Nov, which appears to be their awaited new album…
This weekly listing has now seen a significant overhaul, and has moved over to a Shareable calendar format that is embedded below. You can add it to your own calendar views if you wish (GCal link, iCal link), and then you will get dynamic updates as I get them. Otherwise see the embedded calendar below.
If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above.
One event on the horizon that is well worth mentioning separately, though, is the Chaos Theory 10th Anniversary on 29-Feb 2020. A hell of a line-up (including this ‘site favourites Teeth of the Sea, Gold and End.user among others!), and a great way to celebrate some of London’s most open-minded, and fascinating promoters. I’m hoping to catch up with the promoters themselves and a couple of the bands at least for entries in my /Talk Show Host series in the coming months.
Look out for /Tuesday Ten/384, /Transmission/017, and /Into The Pit/208 coming soon.
