/Welcome to the Future/131/Livestreams and new release round-up/19-Jun 2020

We keep going amid the lockdown. There are new releases, and still, new music 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.

/This Week/New Releases

Various new releases to enjoy this week.

Firstly, released earlier in the week, the first new synapscape material in a couple of years is the a mutual disagreement EP, which is an excellent release all-round. The man who doesn’t stop – Matt Fanale – is back again, this time with his Daddybear project, in the form of EP EBDSM, while Australian EBM artist Caustic Grip officially releases the quite great Toxic Rift EP.

In more metallic releases, Lamb of God are back with their crushing new self-titled album, while it is surprising to think of Mushroomhead as scene veterans, but that’s what they are now, and they release A Wonderful Life today.

In terms of new singles, doves have returned with their first new song in eleven years, the wonderfully dreamy Carousels. Filter, after the sadly dropped plans to release ReBus, have released a furiously heavy new single Thoughts and Prayers. Then, Rome Burns and Quasimodo guitarist Daevid Jael has released their first single as a solo artist, under the moniker The Colour Fades.

Finally, my friends over at I Die: You Die have released the third volume of their compilation series, Telekompilation Vol. 3, a product of the Telekon Slack community that has been a thriving arm of ID:YD for some time. They note that all sales of this compilation will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

After a fallow week without release announcements, there, of course, has been a veritable flood this week. In release date order…

Be My Enemy return with new album All That I Love, I destroy on 03-Jul; a band I saw last year supporting Body of Light in London, Private World, release their new album Aleph on DAIS Records on 28-Aug, while Korine, an excellent synthpop band whose debut New Arrangements I caught onto far too late, release the follow-up The Night We Raise on 04-Sep. There has been a lot of excitement around the return of Linea Aspera, and they finally release a second album II on 07-Sep. Also returning after a little while is Assemblage 23, who have confirmed that the anticipated Mourn is out on 11-Sep, and IDLES release their eagerly-awaited third album Ultra Mono on 25-Sep, and you can hear bruising new single Grounds now.

/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.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week

Look out for /Tuesday Ten/414, and the much delayed (promise!) /But Listen/165 (this will cover the new album from Empathy Test, continually delayed due to a busy few weeks at work – it is partly written!), and the top 40 on /Countdown/2010s/Tracks comes this week.

There are a number of Livestreams hosted by /amodelofcontrol.com coming up, too. Next Thursday is /Stormblast/132, then on Friday it is /Rivet/007. The following Thursday I am doing /TheKindaMzkYouLike/001, which will be digging into the alternative Alternative, mainly of the nineties but also of the decades around it too.
