/Welcome to the Future/121/Events, gigs, livestreams and new release round-up/10-Apr 2020

We keep going in the lockdown. There are new releases, and still new music is coming through, and buying music right now is the only way we can help. The events listing is still being updated, but obviously, an awful lot is being postponed, cancelled or changed right now.

/transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has returned, continuing the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes thus far are here. The latest episode is /transmission/019, which continues on the letter M. /transmission/020 will follow soon.

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

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).

/This Week/New Releases

I should have mentioned the other week that Belgian band Brutus released a new album, Nest.

Out this week: Keef Baker, in the guise of his Nimon project, pulled forward the release of Black Clouds and New Arrivals to this week, and it’s a mellowed out listen, but with storm clouds on the horizon. Also out today is the latest album from Detroit electro luminaries ADULT., Perception is​/​as​/​of Deception – and provided it (/crosses fingers/) goes ahead, they play Infest this August.

There have been a number of single releases this week of note, too. Youth Code finally returned with striking new single Puzzle yesterday, there is a one-off, posthumous release from The Golden Age of Nothing (Dead Rabbitsbandcamp / YouTube), and Die Krupps feat. Jyrki69 have covered the Neon Judgement classic Chinese Black – and it is perhaps a surprisingly faithful cover.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

Just the one new release of note this week – Snog return on 24-Apr with Lullabies For The Lithium Age, which appears to now have the usual fantastical back-story that I’ll take with a barrelload of salt, after the last few…

/Upcoming/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously things have rather changed right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

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.
