/Welcome to the Future/134/Livestreams and new release round-up/10-Jul 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.

/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/022, which continues with the letter N. /transmission/023 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

As is usual, I’ll likely have missed something, please let me know if so.

As such – two albums released last week of note: the excellent new Bestial Mouths album Resurrectedinblack, and the powerful new Boris album NO.

Onto this week – Statiqbloom’s new album Beneath the Whelm is a less “in your face” release than Asphyxia, but for me the malevolence bubbling away in every second makes this a better album, while Dawn of Ashes return to their earlier harsh-industrial influences with The Antimonian. Then there is the release, at last, of the long-promised Static-X release Project Regeneration.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

A few notable announcements this week.

doves released their second new song yesterday (the marvellous Prisoners), and also confirmed that their first new album in eleven years, The Universal Want, is out on 11-Sep. A very different sounding band – grindcore pioneers Napalm Death – return with Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism a week later, on 18-Sep.

One I’d not mentioned previously is a new album from The Levellers, who release Peace on 14-Aug, while it would appear a new Massive Attack EP is imminent.

One reissue announcement this week is impressive-looking Collide remasters of Chasing the Ghost and Some Kind of Strange, often seen as their greatest albums.

/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. The below draws direct from a GCal I’ve long maintained, and 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 events listing below – click on the links to bring up the Calendar entry.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.

Look out for /Tuesday Ten/417, and potentially other posts – however, work has meant I’ve had to dial back on writing a little recently.
