/Welcome to the Future/141/Livestreams and new release round-up/04-Sep 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/023, which completes the letters N and O. /transmission/024 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.

/This Week/New Releases

It’s Bandcamp Day again today, which of course means a whole world of releases to cover.

Before I even get to them, here’s what I missed last week. Reloaded by Rotersand provides a set of reworkings of their recent album How Do You Feel Today, while the Manchester-based Drøne collective released Voices In My Head by Agent 15.

Onto this week. I’ve been looking forward to Hallucination Scene by Black Magnet for a little while – grinding, heavy-as-fuck industrial metal, while the much-tipped Korine return with the sleek synthpop of The Night We Raise. KLACK continue their punishing release schedule with the Probably EP (which is, by the way, great), and Tricky returns with the reflective Fall to Pieces.

Available digitally today is Monster by Seeming, the second CD from The Birdwatcher’s Guide To Atrocity (and it’s radically different in feel to the main album, but no less worth getting). Two releases from the Cracknation camp today, too. Firstly, the third Czar album, Gore en Regalia, has finally been finished and released, while the original Transmissions 1994 demo – the one that got Acumen (Nation) noticed in the first place – has been remastered, and sounds great.

Onto various singles – the quite brilliant Witch of the Vale premiered their new single Commemorate at Stay-in-Fest last week, and it is now available on Bandcamp – the album of the same title is due later in the year. A likely punishing split single (I’ve not got around to listening to it yet) comes from Enduser & Metalogue, while Wingtips have covered Savage Garden (!) to spectacular effect, Arab Strap have released a new single this week (with an album to come next year), and the latest track from Ruby’s upcoming re-imagining of Salt Peter is Carondelet (Me Too Mix).

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

A couple of notable announcements this week.

The tech-industrial duo 11grams release their delayed second album Humanicide on 25-Sep (new single Ice Man is great), while experimental electronic veterans Autechre release new album Sign on 16-Oct.

/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.
