/Welcome to the Future/136/Livestreams and new release round-up/24-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

Quite a few releases again this week.

First up, though, another catch-up, from Blush Response, whose excellent new album Void In was released last week.

Onto this week – Clan of Xymox release Spider on the Wall, while something of a flood of releases from Hands Productions this week. So: Strobo.Lolita’s Hysteria, noise veteran Monolith is back with Unnatural Bodies, Heimstatt Yipotash release Brinkmanship, and Proyecto Mirage with the strikingly titled Reptilians Are Watching Us, and finally, the traditional Forms of Hands compilation this year is Forms of Hands 20 (with a hell of a tracklist, too).

Those of us who picked up the recent expanded 2LP version of Manifesto for a Modern World will already have these tracks, but for those that just want it digitally, the new Randolph & Mortimer EP THEY KNOW WE KNOW THEY LIE is a belter. Also, I featured the early, pre-mastered release of the lead track from this on /Tuesday Ten/416 at the start of the month, but Dismantled release the final version of No Escape on a new two-track EP today.

While Pitchshifter are back (again), with another appropriate re-working – EFKD, and news of new tour dates for the end of 2021.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

Andrew Sega of Iris has another project, and the latest album from Hallowed Hearts is Into the Fire, out on 31-July. The excellent Dissonance have a new EP, Trials EP, on 15-Aug, while British Black Metal band Reign of Erebus, release their first new album in a long time, De Morte Aeterna, on 10-Sep.

/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.

Look out for /Tuesday Ten/419, and potentially other posts – however, work has meant I’ve had to dial back on writing a little recently.

The next upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here. /Rivet/008 is tonight, and /TheKindaMzkYouLike/002 is next Thursday.
