/Welcome to the Future/164/Livestreams and new releases 26-Feb 2021

Another quieter week this week, with a more “usual” list of new releases and upcoming announcements. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day for now, still, so I continue to wrap up both.

Also, if you missed them, read my roundup of 2020 in the form of /Countdown/2020. /Countdown/2020/Albums, /Countdown/2020/Tracks, and /Countdown/2020/Compilations and Re-issues.

/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).


/Releases out today or recently

Liebknecht / Colossus EP /Bandcamp
An outstanding industrial-techno (with more than a hint of EBM) EP that was released this week.
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis / Carnage /Bandcamp
An entirely unexpected new album from Cave and Ellis, that I look forward to getting my teeth into this weekend.
Cabaret Voltaire / Shadow of Funk EP /Bandcamp
A follow-up EP to the excellent album late last year, this continues the same theme, broadly.
Blanck Mass / In Ferneaux /Bandcamp
A delve into field recordings and long-form pieces, I suspect this might be a bit different to what has come before.
VOID / The Hollow Man /Bandcamp
One of the more interesting, avant-garde Black Metal bands of recent times, return with a new album.
FM Einheit / Exhibition Of A Dream /Bandcamp
A full release for a previously vinyl-only, ultra-limited album, this sprawling set is a curious, weird trip – mostly near dark-ambient, it occasionally bares teeth that makes it all the more shocking.
Various Artists / 11 Years Of Chaos compilation album /Bandcamp
No festival this year, sadly, so an excellent compilation instead.

/Upcoming releases announced this week
05-Mar 2021 / Croc Shop / Perpetual Sequence /Bandcamp
Their return relatively recently was a lot of fun, so another new album is welcome.
19-Mar 2021 / Consolidated / We’re Already There /Bandcamp
Digital release date for this long-promised return now confirmed.
14-May 2021 / St. Vincent / Daddy’s Home /Bandcamp
Posters have appeared for the new St. Vincent album, and I’m intrigued to hear where it’s going to go, sonically at least…

/Upcoming/Livestreams/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.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars.

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
/Tuesday Ten/445 will come next week, as well as hopefully, a couple of other items. That said, life is really busy at the moment so finding the time to write more is difficult.

Also coming up this week is /Stormblast/148/Extreme Metal on 04-Mar. The upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here.
