/Welcome to the Future/165/Livestreams and new releases 05-Mar 2021

Bandcamp day again already, and yet again, there’s another big list of releases. 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).

Banging tracks about animals. What’s not to love?

These experimentalists made quite a splash last year – this expands that into five tracks of utter sonic terror.

The miserable Scottish duo return with their first album in sixteen years, and I’ve no doubt it will be both downbeat and hilarious.

Up and coming industrial artist Chiasm joins forces with producer John Fryer, with impressive results.

The rejuvenated Croc Shop return with an intriguing album

/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/446 will come next week. Life is really busy at the moment so finding the time to write more is difficult.

Also coming up this week is /Breadcrumb Trail/A Post-Rock and Post-Metal Livestream on 09-Mar. The upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here.
