/Welcome to the Future/147/Livestreams and new release round-up/16-Oct 2020

Sliding back towards another lockdown, it seems, but there is still new music to enjoy, hence why I continue these Friday posts. 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/024, which starts on the letter P. /transmission/025 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

Instrumental electronics is the order of the day in genuinely new material this week. Longstanding British industrial-noise act Dirty K return with The Rite of the Enraged, while word is that Autechre’s new album Sign might be a little less impenetrable than some of their recent, sprawling work…

There’s a number of compilations and remix albums about this week. Agent Side Grinder lead the charge with REMA/X, a new take on the excellent A/X from last year, while HEALTH release DISCO4:: PART I, which rather than remixes is a host of (diverse!) collaborations for the most part. She Past Away release their Part Time Punks session, while the brilliant Komische series gets a new edition after all: Deutsche Elektronische Musik 4.

While I’ve already mentioned the upcoming <PIG> album, the new single Rock n Roll Refugee was released yesterday, and expect to hear it at /Rivet/011 tonight. And doubtless a track that will appear on a future /Stormblast setlist is Party’s Over, a new single from the ever-excellent Employed to Serve.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

Another whole host of new releases for the next couple of months.

London industrial-rock band Ventenner return on 06-Nov with ambitious new album Hollow Storm (lead single Surface was released yesterday), while North-Eastern industrial group Analogue Blood release their striking new EP Kill Those Beats on 09-Nov.

Leæther Strip release a sprawling compilation of Skinny Puppy covers (Throwing Bones) on 13-Nov, while on 20-Nov the intriguing post-rock/post-metal collective pg.lost release Oscillate (it’s brilliant, too), while Refused continue their post-reformation resurgence with The Malignant Fire EP on the same day.

Then, a bit further ahead, Kelly Moran and Prurient have teamed up for Chain Reaction at Dusk (out 04-Dec), while The Body release the doubtless punishing I’ve Seen All I Need to See on 29-Jan 2021.

/Upcoming/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously things change at short notice 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.

  • /amodelofcontrol.com/next week

    Look out for /Tuesday Ten/431 and potentially more if I have the time.

    A switch of the schedules means that there are three Livestreams presented by /amodelofcontrol.com in the coming week. First up tonight is /Rivet/011, the latest dose of industrial from myself and AndyRavenSable. Then on Tuesday, /TheKindaMzkYouLike/005 starts a new run on Tuesdays (rather than every fourth Thursday), and finally on Thursday, /Stormblast/140 is a special edition of the fortnightly extreme metal night, covering 40 Years of Extreme Metal in one show.

    Also: the next upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here.
