/Welcome to the Future/135/Livestreams and new release round-up/17-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.

Not a great deal released this week (we’re into a quieter few weeks, judging on upcoming release schedules), but there are still some things worth paying attention to. Like the release from the collective led by Jarvis Cocker, known as JARV IS… The album is Beyond the Pale, and while it meanders a bit at points, it is easily his best work since Pulp’s glory days.

The latest split involving Tony Young, is Subset, a collaboration between Autoclav1.1 and Chuibit. While another split release is the bruising track Full of HEALTH, between HEALTH and Full of Hell.

I mentioned new Massive Attack last week, and it was unveiled later that day, in “audiovisual form” – i.e. on Youtube, which kinda made sense when you watch the videos. The three tracks are Massive Attack x Algiers, Climate Emergency; Massive Attack x Young Fathers, Universal Basic Income; and Massive Attack x Saul Williams, Tax Havens. While the latest new Seeming track is the excellent End Studies from the upcoming The Birdwatcher’s Guide to Atrocity. Needless to say there will be a review of that album nearer release.

Finally, any promo or release announcement I’ve seen recently that mentions “this is our perspective on lockdown” has generally been ignored in these parts, frankly – do I really need another perspective on something that hasn’t been a great deal of fun mentally? But I’m making an exception for The Tiger Lillies, who released the darkly comic COVID-19, it turns out, back in April. There is also a Bandcamp-only follow-up from June that is rather more serious in tone.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

Announced this week: Coming 28-Aug, a new Pig Destroyer EP, The Octagonal Stairway. Single The Cavalry absolutely rips. Finally confirmed this week, too, has been a release date for the debut solo album by Greg Puciato, Child Soldier: Creator of God, which is released on 07-Oct.

While coming on 11-Sep is the latest EP from Ihsahn, the Pharos EP – a distinctly more melodic and non-extreme release from this restlessly creative artist, and a hell of a change from the blistering Telemark EP earlier in the year.

/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.

One notable event coming up – with the postponement of this year’s Infest, there is a 12-hour Stay-in-Fest on Saturday 29-August. Stay tuned for further updates of what is going on that day.
