/Welcome to the Future/155/Livestreams and new release round-up/11-Dec 2020

Into the last month of this bizarre, weird year – and this weekly release and events roundup keeps on going. 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.

/This Week/New Releases

A couple of things I missed off mentioning last week, amid the torrent of new releases for Bandcamp Day. S. Talada’s (The Operative, Marching Dynamics) new project Artillery Nightspace released ausgang, an outstanding industrial/noise album that’s well worth the time. As is the sprawling benefit compilation Bound with Love, to assist Leæther Strip’s Claus Larsen after the death of his partner.

Out this week, then: the much anticipated debut album from Witch of the Vale is Commemorate, and brings together a number of previously released tracks alongside a few new ones, and it is a very good release indeed. Upping the intensity further, Dirk Ivens returns under his DIVE moniker with the excellent, pitch-dark Where Do We Go From Here, while a very different release comes from The Avalanches, with We Will Always Love You.

A long-promised remix album comes today, alongside the reissue of Deftones’ White Pony: Black Stallion.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

A couple of interesting releases coming in the first week of March: Canadian hardcore/noise-rock band Tunic release Exhaling (the first, title, track from it is outstanding), while Norwegian black metallers Mork release Katedralen the same week.


/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.

    Look out for the /Countdown/2020 concluding on Tuesday – it’s the best albums of the year this week – as well as /Transmission/025 (life has really got in the way with this, and we’re going to make a third attempt at recording on Sunday) and potentially more if I have the time.

    The next upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here. Coming up this week is /Stormblast/143, on Thurs 17-Dec.
