/Welcome to the Future/142/Livestreams and new release round-up/11-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.

/This Week/New Releases

This week has thrown us headlong into the autumn release schedules, with no less than nine new releases this week worthy of your time (and I suspect there are more besides that, that I may have missed).

Released earlier in the week was the much-anticipated return of Linea Aspera with II, and also the new side-project from Amnistia member Tino Claus, TC75, with their new album Popmusesick.

Album of the week for me is the new one – the first in four years – from Assemblage 23, Mourn. Their best album in well beyond a decade, it’s Tom Shear doing what he does so well, but it has an additional snarl as he turns his attention to the world in 2020 (the outstanding single Welcome, Apocalypse in particular).

Similarly furious is the rampaging power of the new album from Uniform. Shame is another scorching release from this NYC trio, that should appeal if you have any interest in industrial-tinged noise-rock (with the emphasis on noise).

Then, there are three releases from old hands. doves return from their lengthy hiatus with The Universal Want, whose singles have been wonderful, and I’m looking forward to hearing the whole album later (when I’m not being constantly distracted by work). The Flaming Lips – a band who’ve seemingly never stopped – release their sixteenth album, American Head, while Emperor frontman Ihsahn continues his solo releases with Pharos EP, which leans into his more melodic influences and, frankly, is quite a departure from some of his other material in recent times…

Another interesting release this week is from Dead Quiet, whose new album Truth and Ruin is melodic, stoner grooves, while Psyclon Nine frontman Nero Bellum releases the somewhat experimental electronic darkness of The Voice Of Your Blood Cries To Me From The Soil.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

The excellent Zeal & Ardor returns next month (23-Oct) with the Wake of a Nation EP, while the equally great Hungarian noise/tribal artist livingtotem releases surreal existence next week.


/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.
